A particular woman entered our
shelter, two cats in hand. She said
she wanted us to take the cats. She
had all the necessary paperwork, but
we discovered that the papers were
not in her name. We did some
research and made contact with the
cats' actual owners, who were
vacationing in Hawaii and had left
their cats in the care of a trusted
friend. That friendship is now over,
but the cats are back with their
students donate Big!!!
This holiday season students from
Kilby Professional Laboratory School
went all out to help shelter
animals. Students in kindergarten
and the sixth grade selected our
shelter as their community project.
Together they collected over 350
pounds of dry cat and dog food , 15
gallons of cleaning fluids , and 82
rolls of paper towels !!! Great job
