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!
