This was a challenging month as we were faced with a surplus of cats and dogs. We were successful in moving out 89 cats! Fifty cats went to rescue, nine cats returned to owner, and thirty cats adopted into their forever homes! That is an amazing job well done by everyone.
During September we were faced with a few owner requested euthanasia of their beloved pets. While this is a hard thing to do, we are proud to provide this service to them at a cost they can afford.
Eighty percent live-outcome for the month of September. We are actively trying new avenues to get this number even higher. Heart of the Foothills and other local volunteers have been diligently working to transform our trailer into a cat room. Hopefully, this will be finished soon.
