Pet of the Week – A Call to Action
This week, instead of featuring one special animal in need of a loving, caring “fur-ever” home, the City Animal Shelter is asking for help.
The shelter is getting ready for a major, much needed renovation project.
Construction is set to start around July 1, when shelter staff will begin moving every animal still at the shelter to their temporary facility across the parking lot still at 950 W. Warlow Dr.
Moving the animals will be an even bigger job than expected due to the large number of dogs and cats currently available for adoption. In addition to both dog rooms and the cat rooms being full, there are also a ton of barn cats currently at the shelter.
So, if your family’s been wanting to rescue a shelter pet, but have been waiting for the perfect time, this is it!
Shelter staff would love to see every animal find a new “fur-ever” home. However, given their current situation, the shelter is also in desperate need of foster homes. Ideally, a foster home would be willing to house a shelter animal until the renovation project is complete.
Foster families would not only be helping the shelter out, but they would also be helping the shelter pet adapt to family life, making them even more adoptable.
If you can help out the shelter, by either adopting or fostering an animal, give them a call at (307) 682-5249. Or stop by for a visit Monday through Friday from 1 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
