Attitude makes all the difference, and these folks have a very positive attitude in a very stressful job. Getting the pets into homes instead of euthanizing them is goal one. Thank you for all you do.
Pros: Better here than at so many other places

Shelters working together
posted 6 years ago
So many people have no idea that animal control agencies work with other animal shelters and breed rescues; they do everything in the power not to have to terminate a healthy animal. They work several hours contacting rescue groups for assistance but unfortunately there are 10 animals to the 1 human in the USA. Over 3,500 animals are born EVERY HOUR compared to only 400 children each hour.
We need to control the pet population, please spay and neuter your pet today!
Pros: Helpful when it comes to transfering animals to shelters
Cons: They need more kennel space since the area is growing so much
