We’d like to start by sending a HUGE thank you to you for taking time out of your busy schedule to volunteer with us. We would not be able to do any of this without you. Thank you for helping us save the lives of countless animals in our county and beyond.
Below, find some fun stories from last month, information on upcoming events, and current volunteer opportunities!
In 2018 the shelter handled over 700 animals from adoptions, dog control pups, lost kitties, and transfers.
The Shelter adopted out 545 dogs and cats in 2018!!!
The Spay/Neuter clinic ended 2018 by fixing 1706 cats, 607 dogs, 10 rabbits and 2 rats for a grand total of 2,345 pets! We also performed 240 microchips and 857 rabies vaccinations!
Join us in reaching our 2019 goal of fixing 2,155 pets so we can reach a grand total of 4,500 pets fixed by the end of this year! We have started the year off on the right foot performing 21 surgeries on Jan 3, and 50 the following week!
