At this time of year, litters of puppies and kittens are carried through the shelter door in boxes, clothes hampers, makeshift traps, and containers that were never designed for animal transport. The devoted mothers of the sweet little ones often accompany their offspring. With the increase in animals comes an increase in costs. We need manpower, more food, more veterinary and cleaning supplies. Please read further in our mid-year mailer to find out how you can help.
