Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Small animal shelter, small shelter staff in a very poor county of New Mexico. Sierra County's population is mostly elderly and on fixed income. We are: providing funds to reduce surrender of pets through paying medical expenses including spay/neuter, pet food and supplies for lower income families, recruiting, vetting and training shelter volunteers to help overworked shelter staff and bring more human contact to shelter pets to make them more adoptable. Sponsoring reduced adoption fees to move animals out of the shelter. Providing spay/neuter to adoptable pets that are in the shelter so they have a better chance of being adopted and not procreating.
