Charting impact

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

To put ourselves out of business. If we can effectively reduce the number of unwanted pets being born, then the county shelter and other human groups operating shelters and foster programs can manage the numbers without the need to euthanize.

Our philosophy is that money in the bank does not save lives. If we have the money, we will aggressively issue vouchers to residents of Monongalia County who honestly need help to fix the animals in their care.

We have committed members and dedicated volunteers working around the clock to reduce the number of unwanted animals being born in Monongalia County. The community is very supportive with their cash and non-cash gifts, the County Commissions and staff of the county shelter assist us when they can, and we have laid a solid volunteer and policy foundation to achieve our goal.

In 2008 M-SNAP issued 118 vouchers. In 2022, M-SNAP issued 1,234. In our first full year of operation (2009), 1,379 animals were euthanized at our county shelter. In 2022, 553were euthanized, 75% were cats and kittens. Our challenge now is to address ordinances that govern cat populations to protect their existence and reduce their overpopulation.
