News & Announcements

News ImageJune 27, 2016  Congratulations to our June Volunteer of the Month, Linda!Linda has been with us for just a year and half but has already made a huge impact on our programs! Linda has already donated 297 hours in that short amount of time and we are so lucky to have her! Linda is trained as a Cat Socializer, Dog Walker, Greeter & Customer Service, Kitten Nursery Attendant, Special Events and our Pawtography club! Somehow she manages to split her many volunteer hours evenly among all of her favorite assignments and give each part of our shelter its own special attention. Linda is incredibly active in our special events (having already volunteered at SIX this year so far) and is fabulous at promoting our adoptable animals. We would like to thank Linda for her gentle hand with the animals and exceptional dedication to our shelter and programs. We are so lucky to have Linda as a part of our volunteer family.

Everyone had a great time visiting over 50 different animal rescue groups and pet related vendors, spinning our prize wheel and winning pet care items, watching awesome demonstrations, getting delicious food from Kona Ice and Classic Tacos food trucks and more! We are ecstatic to announce we surpassed our original adoption goal and 114 animals found their furever homes! 22 Cats, 84 Dogs, 5 Guinea Pigs and 4 Rabbits found loving families! Thank you to the community members who came out this event and for choosing to adopt a furry friend. Thank you to all staff and volunteers for all their hard work and dedication, without you this event would not be possible! Lastly, special thanks to Supervisor Shawn Nelson for sponsoring this event. We couldn’t have done it without you and we appreciate all of your hard work, support and everything you do for our shelter!
