Dear Friends of Animals,
You’ve heard and probably used the term, “April flowers bring May flowers.”
For us, April showers deliver May litters instead of flowers. And the litters come fast and steady for at least 6 more months! Hundreds of kittens, puppies, and pregnant animals come in requiring a longer stay of care. Our shelter, no matter how big and beautiful, is still not ideal for long-term housing of puppies and kittens too young to be adopted. A home environment is what they need.
To illustrate the magnitude of this challenge, I’d like to share with you a statistic from 2021:
1,236 animals were placed in foster care. Most of those were felines, but there were also a few bearded dragons and a tortoise who needed care away from the shelter.
As you can imagine, the expenses for all of that add up fast!
Will you can help us bridge that gap for neonates between arriving at the shelter and being ready for adoption?
With your gift of a tax-deductible donation today, you can help us shower the animals in our care with love - and the means to meet their needs.
Together we are making a difference, one little wet nose at a time.
Vicki Davis, CAWA
NOTE: If you need to rehome a pet, an appointment is required; please call us at 320-252-0896 to make one. Please expect there may be a weeks-long wait due to the volume of animals needing our services. Thank you for understanding.
