What makes this shelter great?

:

In addition to being the largest no-kill shelter in our area, the Center has increasingly taken on the need to care for companion animals who need extraordinary veterinary care. Dogs needing ACL surgery, hip replacement, heart worm treatment, Cushings disease; even a dog who tried to jump into a tree & now needs a plate in his leg. Being a private 501(c)3 non-profit, the Center gets over 90% of its funding from donations and fundraisers - and extraordinary vet care puts a giant strain on their finances. Nonetheless, the wonderful staff, volunteers & board of directors wouldn't have it any other way - it's what they are here to do! The Center understands that these animals still have a lot of love to give; they just need a little help getting back on their paws again. And the Center is there to provide that help, to them and the 500+ other critters who reside there while we find them their forever homes. Winning $10K would help them get there quicker and would enable helping even more!

I find wonderful to be able to support a no kill animal shelter. They work amazingly on a daily basis to support, help, and find a new home and a living family to animals in need. Good luck!! I hope you will be able to win the challenge and keep your wonderful work going on!!

I live this shelter, I have three dogs and two cats from this no kill shelter. One of my favorite charities. I am also honored to individually bless each pet at the first Sunday in October St. Francis Day Animal Blessing, the high point of my pastoral ministry each year.

I have gotton three dogs from this center. They are well taken care of. One dog we had to put down with cancer; the beautifl lab we just put down in March; she was 14 yrs. old. We still have the rat terrier; Al. He is the love of our lives. Wonderful center and wonderful people work there. They really deserve a grant. Janice

IMPORTANT; I HAVE A GRACE CONCERN FOR YOUR SHELTER:
I was on the Internet last night between 3:00-4:00 AM when I noticed your shelter had gone back down to second place. How did so many people vote last night at this time? Can't believe that people are up and surfing the web, just looking for a shelter to vote on.

Under movie star shelter comments - where did all of these people sign on in the wee hours of the night?
New votes at this time of the morning?

Every animal saved, no matter where or by who, is important and worthy. I do believe that by working together, we can do more and learn more; the unfortunate side effect of these contests is that they lead us to compete with each other. However, we also learn. It's been clearly demonstrated that celebrity spokespeople work. While we were unable to recruit any in time for this contest, we are overwhelmed by the level of support we've received without one. We wish the very best to all the organizations in this contest, and to all the volunteers, supporters, donors, adopters, rescuers, and those who dedicate their lives toward helping homeless critters across the globe! Thank you!!

These animals deserve the right to live normal healthy lives. Winning this money would help tremendously to dogs like Brewster and others like him. The Center is rich on love but always struggling financially. This is so exciting....Please keep voting everyone...Tell everybody you know to vote!

the fact that the shelter is a no kill shelter I support their efforts..I hope you win. I had a german shorthair pointer which i rescued from the toronto humane society while i was going to university. Blue was an over weight (30i some odd ) pounds and about 10 yrs old the previous people got a job in the states and just surrendered him... after 3 months love affection and walks he lost over 2o of the unwanted pounds. for the next three years he filled not only my heart but the woman i was with and her 2 boys 6/8 with unconditional love. he eventually succumb to cancer and broke our hearts but the journey was worth it. I'm sure that this poor dog has allot of love to give hope he finds a home...
