MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. (WHNT) – The Colbert County Animal Shelter is proposing to waive adoption fees for adult pets.

The shelter’s kennel manager, Jessica McGee, told News 19 that the shelter is currently very overcrowded, which is stressful for many of their animals.

“We were built to hold 40 dogs, 16 cats,” McGee said. “We now have about 20 cats and nearly 130 dogs.”

The shelter is proposing to waive adoption fees for cats and dogs over nine months old. To be eligible, you must be able to provide a veterinary reference.

The shelter said it hasn’t set a concrete time frame for the waiver program, but wants to get as many dogs adopted as possible.

Shelter officials say there are other ways to help the shelter as well. People are encouraged to donate money, food, blankets, cleaning supplies, etc. You can find how to donate on the shelter’s Facebook page here.

When winter arrives, the Pontiac animal shelter works to protect animals from the cold https://stichtingatar.com/when-winter-arrives-the-pontiac-animal-shelter-works-to-protect-animals-from-the-cold/ Sun, 20 Nov 2022 22:46:22 +0000 https://stichtingatar.com/when-winter-arrives-the-pontiac-animal-shelter-works-to-protect-animals-from-the-cold/ Pontiac Animal Shelter warns people not to keep their pets outside in cold weather “Please bring your dogs inside when it’s cold outside. It’s as cold for them as it is for us, if not colder because we can bundle up, they can’t.” PONTIAC, Mich. (FOX 2) – When winter arrives, a Pontiac animal shelter […]]]>

When winter arrives, a Pontiac animal shelter is busy helping animals left in the cold.

“It’s a constant battle with people realizing they have to take their animals in during this cold weather,” said Do Only Good Animal Rescue volunteer Diane Higgins.

Pontiac’s Do Only Good Animal Rescue volunteers work to care for dogs waiting for forever homes. When it gets dangerously cold like this, the shelter makes adjustments.

“It was an outing for them, they have to go to the toilet and then we bring them straight in, it’s too cold, it’s too cold for us, so we try to get them in and out as quickly as possible.”

Unfortunately, some pet owners don’t do the same. Volunteers say they have already received calls for animals left outside.

“All of us, we wake up in the middle of the night thinking about dogs, we know there’s dogs out there. We hear the wind howling, it’s a snowstorm. I think, oh my God, all the poor dogs and cats go outside.”

According to board member Genna Ortel, some dogs can tolerate the cold better than others.

“If they’re typical Huskies, they’re more built for the type of weather that they can be out there a little longer, but that’s still not safe for them either,” she said.

Ortel insists that if you put your dog outside, try to have shelter outside.

“It’s fine if they have shelter outside, but most of them have a house with which we want straw as a heat source, and you want the bottom raised so that the ice do not enter.”

Volunteers say they are working to educate pet owners and will continue to share their message until everyone listens.

“Please bring your dogs inside when it’s cold outside, it’s as cold for them as it is for us, if not colder, because we can bundle up, they can’t.”

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – When an animal comes to the Lexington Humane Society, it usually doesn’t take very long to find a forever home. We are told that the average is less than two weeks.

But for a dog here now, two weeks has turned into 142 weeks. On Friday, “Ginny”, the mix of black pit bulls, spent his 1,000e day here.

“It’s a testament to Ginny’s state of mind and the care we give her,” Katy Stoess said. Stoess directs LHS Special Events.

“We are throwing a big party to celebrate this accomplishment,” Stoess added before saying it will be a bittersweet celebration.

LEX 18

The staff here love animals, but they love it even more when the animals find a new family to come home to. “Ginny” hasn’t been able to make it after nearly three years because there are several caveats that come with her adoption.

“Ginny is a lot. She has a lot of energy, she’s a black pit bull, which a lot of people don’t like. And she needs a very active adopter because if she doesn’t give off that energy, she gets a little destructive. She also can’t go into a house with other animals and can’t go into an apartment,” Stoess explained.

She also can’t, or at least shouldn’t be with young children given her strength. She is a nice but turbulent dog.

LEX 18

“One of the things about Ginny is that she’s always happy. She’s not a dog that regressed from being at the shelter,” said Ashley Kirkwood, who volunteers with LHS, and takes Ginny for long walks several times a week.

Kirkwood knows “Ginny” would be great for the right owner, and Stoess hopes that person will show up as well.

“This is her home, and we treat her like our own dog. Until the right person comes along, we will continue to do the same,” Stoess said.

ROSWELL, NM (KRQE) – The city of Roswell is hiring more staff for its animal shelter after community members and animal rights groups raised concerns about neglect in the city. In a public comment at a recent city council meeting, a member of the Support Roswell Animals group spoke out, giving a little insight into what she says is going on at the shelter.

“Adoptions are down, claims are down,” said Anna Edwards of Support Roswell Animals. “We have one or two kennel workers to feed, care for and clean over 150 animals. It is therefore extremely important that the staff of these kennels be increased.

Animal rights groups say the dogs are not getting proper veterinary treatment and have cited issues such as dogs coming into contact with cleaning products causing blisters on their paws. In response, the city held a meeting in August and has now approved funding for six new positions for animal services.

According to a report from city staff, more employees are needed to ensure the shelter meets the state’s requirement that every animal in the shelter receive at least fifteen minutes of care per day. During the meeting, a counselor asked why there was turnover at the shelter. The director of animal services said it was hard work.

“The work is exhausting. It is very laborious. So one of the guys we lost was 65, it took a toll on him,” said Nicole Rogers, director of Roswell Animal Services.

The city approved $325,000 for the six new positions. Five of the new positions will help run the shelter. The sixth position will be an officer to help manage reception and ensure animal services are properly provided.

The shelter can accommodate approximately 152 animals. According to the city staff report, if funding for new employees were not approved, they could only properly care for 61 animals or even face the shelter’s closure.

Animal services say they plan to extend their hours once they have more staff. They currently close at 5:00 p.m. on weekdays, which residents say isn’t late enough to check on pets or pick up lost animals after work.

Administrators will now be able to work at the Warren County Animal Adoption and Control Center, but a new concealed carry policy will need to be put in place.

At the county’s health and welfare committee meeting Tuesday night, County Commissioner Blaine Wilcher told the committee that Sheriff Jackie Matheny Jr. told him inmates would be allowed to work at the shelter.

“Sheriff Matheny called me about the end of last week and basically what they’re going to do is start Monday they’re going to have two admins there with an officer for two hours a day, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. to help with cleanup,” Wilcher said.

Inmates will be able to help the shelter clean up before the shelter opens. Wilcher was thrilled with this news.

“That’s probably one of the best news we have tonight. It’s really going to be a big help to them. He said he’ll look into it and see how it works and if they need to do more or less,” Wilcher said.

Now that inmates will be allowed to help at the shelter, Wilcher says they must respond to animal control director Sherri Bradley’s right to conceal the transport.

“With this, we have to settle the situation that Sherri has the right to carry. Currently, we don’t have a policy from this committee on this. So we need to put forward a motion to allow Robert Bratcher to write a policy for her, or anyone else, I guess, who has concealed carry working there with the proper training to carry a weapon,” Wilcher said. .

“Blaine, the only thing is David Britton told me he thought it was just the manager,” County Manager Terry Bell said.

“OK, let’s make the director the only one in this case,” Wilcher said.

“What is the right training? What do you mean by that?” Commissioner Kasey Owens asked.

Bradley said she doesn’t know how they do things here, but in Florida she has to go shooting every year to qualify.

“Do we need to specify the appropriate formation? Owens asked. “I guess Robert would do that.”

“I don’t want to say because I don’t know what it is, but between Jackie, Sherri, Robert and David, they’ll make sure we get what we need,” Wilcher said.

“Probably needs the county to be there as well to get him a gun. I think they would prefer us to recommend them,” Bell added.

“Well, wouldn’t that be part of it?” Wilcher asked.

“As long as you have the wording in there,” Bell said.

“I think it could just be policy and have Robert write the policy,” Owens said.

The committee unanimously made a motion for the lawyer to draft a policy.

Protesters plead for change at the Front Street Animal Shelter https://stichtingatar.com/protesters-plead-for-change-at-the-front-street-animal-shelter/ Sun, 06 Nov 2022 23:48:24 +0000 https://stichtingatar.com/protesters-plead-for-change-at-the-front-street-animal-shelter/ SACRAMENTO, Calif.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Animal advocates marched Sunday morning protesting what they described as a downward spiral in the care provided by the Front Street Animal Shelter.

“You can only have a limited number of animals and after that they have the right to say we don’t take it. So what we see and what we work with is the animals that are turned away. They are unchanged,” explained Hilary Bagley Franzoia, former prosecutor and founder of the Animal Cruelty Prosecution Unit & Task Force.

Animal advocate Julie Virga tells FOX40 that Front Street was an open-ended shelter.

“Their annual animal consumption, historically, has been 10,000 to 11,000 animals per year,” Virga said.

But protesters say everything has changed with the coronavirus and a new director. According to them, it was in August that the shelter welcomed dogs, mainly by appointment.

“These animals have nowhere to go,” said Elyse Mize, another animal advocate. “You can’t bring a healthy stray cat at all.”

Philip Zimmerman, the director of the shelter, tells FOX40 that they continue to take in sick, injured and dangerous, vicious animals.

However, they ask finders of lost dogs to help reunite them before bringing them to the shelter.

“If a healthy cat is found without identification, we advise searchers to return the cat to where it was found, as it is more likely to be reunited with its owners,” Zimmerman said.

Mize says 622 animals have been euthanized since January.

“We want our shelter to go back to how it was,” Virga said.

Councilwoman Angelique Ahsby says she recently commissioned an audit of Front Street operations, allowing them to take a hard look at ways to improve services to the community.

Ashby tells FOX40 that “Front Street Shelter has a long history of strong community support. It is important that they continue to be heard and valued as the shelter shapes its future. I am grateful to the many people who continue to care deeply about the important role Front Street plays in the greater Sacramento area.

Adoptions urgently needed to curb overcrowding at Monroe County Animal Shelter https://stichtingatar.com/adoptions-urgently-needed-to-curb-overcrowding-at-monroe-county-animal-shelter/ Thu, 03 Nov 2022 03:09:01 +0000 https://stichtingatar.com/adoptions-urgently-needed-to-curb-overcrowding-at-monroe-county-animal-shelter/ MADISONVILLE, Tenn.

MADISONVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Staff at the Monroe County Animal Shelter are very busy. Like hundreds of shelters across the country, the one in Monroe County is over capacity and currently has more than 200 animals on the waiting list.

But hope is high that a new animal shelter in Monroe County can help solve a number of problems. The plan is to build it just a few 1,000 feet from the current shelter, but more funding is needed to make the dream a reality.

“We have animals stored everywhere,” said Teresa Underwood, executive director of Friends of Animals of Monroe County. “All the medical care we provide is done in this tiny little room here.”

It’s tight quarters at the shelter along Kefauver Lane and Underwood as well as its animal-loving team trying to meet needs with what they have.

“It’s quite stressful because we have to find where we can put these animals. We have some in the kitchen. We have moms with puppies in the puppy room,” she said.

The shelter is well over its capacity limit. Typically, it’s supposed to house 80-90 animals, but right now more than 120 live there.

“When we can overtake, we do and that’s the only way to hold these animals,” Underwood said. “We have reduced our reception capacity. It used to be around 6,000 a year and now it’s down to less than 2,000 a year, but I’m afraid it’s going up here in recent months.

Underwood speculates that the current state of the national economy is taking a heavy toll on pet owners in Monroe County, fueling the rise in the number of abandoned pets.

“The cost of living is rising. Grocery stores, shopping and then buying animals to feed them are expensive. Traveling, taking them to the vet. There is a shortage of veterinarians right now. So if you can’t take your animal to the vet, you can’t have it spayed or neutered, so you can’t prevent animal production,” Underwood said.

Some of the shelter dogs live outside. The good news is that 75% of the funding for a new, larger shelter is secured.

“In the new shelter, these animals, especially dogs, can come and go indoors and outdoors with indoor and outdoor kennels,” Underwood said. “There will be less spread of disease because we can control the airflow in the new shelter. And there will be a bigger lobby so the community will have more space when they walk through the door to adopt or return their animals.

Underwood added that she and her team did not want to be put in the position of euthanizing adoptable animals to make room in the current shelter. About $1.3 million is still needed to build the new one.

While Underwood says a new shelter doesn’t guarantee a solution to overcapacity issues, the best thing to do is to be prepared.

More than 250 animals in the shelter need a home.

HOUSTON — Houston’s BARC Animal Shelter said Thursday it was being forced to euthanize more animals due to ongoing capacity issues.

More than 250 animals in the shelter need a home.

“It’s not the first time this year that we have had to tell the public that we are starting the day at full capacity,” said BARC’s Cory Stottlemyer.

Stottlemyer said the shelter has been operating at its capacity limit of 300 animals for months.

He said the number of adoptions and foster care was at an all-time low.

“Due to the high cost of owning a pet right now, inflation is impacting the decisions of people at all levels about adding a new family member or pet,” Stottlemyer said.

By law, the shelter must accept any animal that comes through its doors. Stottlemyer said lack of space and adoptions forced them to cull more animals.

“We don’t have a kennel for incoming animals. we have to make this ultimate and difficult decision,” he said.

There is a measure on the November ballot aimed at helping the shelter with its ongoing capacity problem.

Proposal C proposes $47 million in animal care bonds, including a new building for BARC.

“What we do know is that it would improve the reception capacity of BARC. We know more funds would go to help get animals off our streets,” said Houston PetSet Co-Chair Tena Lundquist Faust.

Lundquist-Faust said her agency works in conjunction with shelters like BARC.

“It’s not just for the animals, it’s for the city of Houston, it’s a crisis, it’s a public health and public safety issue,” she said.

BARC is running a Halloween special over the weekend with reduced adoption fees. The promotion runs from Friday to Sunday.

A performance of FAIRYTALE is planned at a kind-hearted animal shelter in an effort to raise vital funds.

The RSPCA Danaher Home has teamed up with British Pantomimes and will put on a new performance at Wethersfield Village Hall on November 27.

Three Cinderella shows will take place as the charity hopes to raise much-needed funds to help it get through the winter.

Each year, the home, which receives no official funding and relies solely on donations, grants and bequests, welcomes approximately 500 dogs and cats.

During the pandemic he lost over £300,000 as his charity shops were closed and fundraising events canceled and now he faces challenges as more animals arrive due to the crisis of the cost of living.

The pop-up touring show features professional actors and many pantomime traditions, including costumes, song and dance routines, and lots of audience interaction.

Sam Garvey, Managing Director of Danaher, said: “Panto is such a part of Christmas tradition, and we are absolutely delighted to be working with British Pantomimes to bring Cinderella to Wethersfield for such a good cause.

“We are sure it will appeal to all generations of families and we want to say a big thank you to everyone at British Pantomimes who have generously supported us in organizing this very special event.”

Sarah Brown, Pantomimes UK Operations Manager, said: “We are delighted to support Danaher and we can’t think of a better way to help raise money for animal rescue.

“Our pop-up shows are always incredibly popular. It’s a great way for kids to experience pantomime live right before their eyes and we’re already looking forward to it.

Performances will be at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. and every ticket sold will help raise funds to help support rescue animals at Danaher.

Cinderella is suitable for ages five and up and each show lasts one hour.

Tickets cost £8 for children under 16, £12 for adults and family tickets are available for £35.
