Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We strive to provide a shelter where Wicomico County residents can bring stray animals and surrender unwanted animals. If these animals are healthy and able to be adopted this is our goal to provide them a second chance to get their forever home. We also operate a low-cost spay/neuter clinic to help reduce the pet population. We only intake animals from Wicomico County, however, our clinic and adoptable animals are available to everyone regardless of place of residence. We would like to expand our shelter housing capacity and spay/neuter clinic operational hours and expand to provide general wellness services.

We utilize public outreach to share our goals and hope they find that they share our goals and donate to help our cause. We are working on strategic planning to increase our shelter capabilities for sheltering and clinic to meet the needs of Wicomico County residents. Due to the economy, we are experiencing increased animal intake and requests for services beyond our current capabilities. We are working to recruit more local vets willing to donate or work at moderate rates to expand our spay/neuter clinic and wellness services.

We have the capability to shelter between 40-50 dogs and 60-70 cats without overcrowding. At this capacity, it limits our availability to accept surrenders as well increases time to clean and care for all our animals. We have the capability to operate our spay/neuter clinic five days a week but are currently limited by the time of available vets.

We have made progress with strategic planning and utilizing capabilities to determine our future operations needs. We have expanded the spay/neuter clinic days to three days per week and added a monthly rabies clinic. Building and other technology improvements have been made for efficiency, better health and care of animals, improved customer services.
