2013 is the year for adoption
The start of the new year always brings happiness, and promises to people across the world. This year bring some happiness and a promise to all the animals at the shelter.There is always animals here waiting to fulfill their hopes and dreams for 2013. Many have made resolutions to be part of a gentle and loving family, while others just want to become more active, but need the help of some extra volunteers to do so. Some are wanting to love a little more, but need someone to be able to do so. Please come out, volunteer---and help an animals dream come true.
Giving a little love
Adopting a pet can be one of life’s purest joys. Their needs are simple. They’re perfectly content with basics; such as, food, shelter and, of course, our companionship. What they give us in return is far greater—unconditional love and endless joy. Many animal lovers have found that going from one pet to two is easier because they already know what to expect when they bring the newcomer home.
Volunteering at the shelter can be very rewarding. Walking the dogs and playing with the cats is very important. It helps to socialize them and gives them the exercise they need. The dogs are walked at least twice a day. Of course, they enjoy the great outdoors. Also, it keeps those who are housebroken on their regular schedule and it helps those who are not to become housebroken.
Donations are always welcome. In addition to financial support, we can always use blankets and towels, Clorox bleach, laundry and dish detergent, canned dog and cat food, meat baby food in jars (chicken/turkey/beef) for the tiny kittens, dog and cat treats, pet toys, scoopable kitty litter, paper towels, toilet tissue, pet carriers, postage stamps, Windex glass cleaner, anti-bacterial soap, hand sanitizer, Q-tips, cotton balls, alcohol, and gift certificates to Office Max, Meijer, WalMart and TSC. You can also spread the word by telling your friends about our shelter’s services.
