There are three things we needed to continue providing the services we do; space, people, and time.
We knew going into 2022 we needed more help because the needs of the community and animals in our care are ever growing. Early in the year we began to discuss our needs with the City Administration who also agreed we needed help. We were fortunate to have held several meetings with tours over the summer to the members of City Council. Each visit included an overview of our need for staff and space to continue providing life saving services. We also shared with the Community our intentions of requesting more staff and space.
Thanks to the support of the City Administration, City Council, and our Community, we’ll be able to not only increase our staff but also begin looking at how to effectively expand our shelter’s existing footprint. On behalf of our staff and volunteers, we are truly grateful for the support we’ve received. We are looking forward to 2023 so we can continue to ensure we place every behaviorally and medically sound animal into new homes; provide resources to keep animals in their loving homes; and be the voice for the animals who are in neglectful situations.
