10000 Likes webWe reached our Facebook goal of 10,000 Likes in 2015 in celebration of our 40th Anniversary!

Thank you to all of you who follow us on Facebook.  We can tell you with absolute certainty that it is helping us save lives.  When you share our posts featuring adoptable pets and encourage your friends to do the same, the exposure they receive is incredible!  And those of you who have wanted to adopt a pet that you have seen on Facebook can testify that you have to act fast as they are adopted almost immediately!  Our average length of stay for all shelter animals from intake to adoption is under 9 days - which includes the time it takes us to spay/neuter them - and we could not do that without all of you!

Of course our work is never done, so we have a new goal.  Help us reach 15,000 Likes by New Years!!!  Like us today!

To date in 2015, 94% of the animals that have entered our doors have been adopted!!!  Not too shabby for an open admission shelter!  With your help, we have FINALLY gotten to the point where we are adopting out every single animal that has the potential to be treated/rehabilitated.  Since we refuse to turn away an animal in need, there will always be a small number in which euthanasia is the only humane option, but those cases are few and far between!  The St. Cloud Times ran a story which highlights our accomplishments this year.  We would like to ammend our previous number of 97% to 94% (we hadn't taken into account the animals that were surrendered in December of 2014 that were adopted in 2015, which skewed our numbers slightly), but the methods in which we accomplished this are the same!

Check out this St. Cloud Times article for details on how we have managed to increase our live release rate by leaps and bounds.  Thank you to all of you who have adopted a pet, referred a friend or family member, and/or shared our posts of adoptable pets on Facebook.  Our success so far this year is because of YOU!

MarleyDear Tri-County Humane Society,

We recently adopted Marley. We would just like to thank you for blessing us with such an amazing, wonderful, and talented dog. He has warmed our hearts and continues to surprise us each and every day with his love and compassion. We believe that getting Marley is a gift from all the hard work that our family has put into fostering dogs from the Tri-County Humane Society.

Marley has been an absolute joy to our family, and has taught us so much. Jeff was recently named the new manager of the Pine Ridge Golf Course in Sartell, and he is able to bring Marley to the course every day. Marley has been named the “Goose Dog” and has been hired to make sure the geese stay off of the golf course! Marley loves being outdoors, and is a great jogging partner. He is super friendly to other dogs, and people. Marley is also a lap-loving daddy’s boy! He has made our family complete!

Thank you so much again!!

~ Abbie, Jeff and Marley
