Charting impact

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

Our goal is to get every available animal into a loving home. We need to speak up for the animals when they are not properly being cared for. We need to educate the public about our services regarding animals such as spaying/neutering, microchipping, humane education, foster parenting, rescue coordination, etc.

We are partnering with rescues to get animals out of the shelter where they can work with the animals needs before placement. We will expand our foster parents who will keep the animal in their home until adoption. We have opened our spay/neuter clinic to 5 days a week to offer low cost surgeries and vaccinations. We have partnered with some of the cities that we serve in order to offer $5 or free microchips and vouchers for spaying/neutering to residents who normally could not afford the fees. Our Humane Educator is going into the schools and providing a kid's camp.

We opened a spay/neuter clinic in 2013 that is now open 7 days a week to help the community afford to sterilize their pets. We offer low-cost services to our communities. We educate the kids and adults within our community about the unwanted and abused animals within our service area.

We have reduced the number of unwanted animals coming into the shelter in 1/2 from 1996. Our live release rate increases every year. The goal is to get to live release rate of 90% or better.
