What We Did in 2009
Saturday, 30 January 2010

In 2009 we adopted out over 300 of our lovely pets.

 

 We rescued 213 cats/kittens. This included 171 kittens, 72 of whom came in with 17 moms. That's 99 motherless kittens, including bottle babies.  We adopted out 137 of the kittens and 5 moms. Everyone wants the babies! We also adopted out 99 shelter adults for a total of 241 cat adoptions!! This is almost double from 126 cat adoptions in 2008.

 

 We rescued 90 dogs/puppies. Everyone wants the puppies or small dogs, and we did not get as many small ones in 2009 as in prior years.  Nonetheless, forever homes for 86!! It is sad we don't have as much room at the shelter for the canines as for felines. This is why we desperately need foster homes.

 

Hearty congratulations to our adoption team volunteers and all our volunteers who help find forever homes and who help make shelter life special for those that are still waiting. Let's make 2010 even better!!
