Success Stories
The Hawaiian Holiday

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 rightful owners.

Local 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 students and teachers .

Pete is a huge hit

Director Todd Nix has created a new character to assist in the early childhood education of our students. The new spokesman is " Pete" a loveable mixed terrier who educates kids by giving them a foundation to build on when it comes to caring for pets.

Pete tells kids to remember all animals depend on us for love , food , water , shelter , and medical attention.

This is all in the format of a coloring and educational book that was provided by the HOBO FOUNDATION. Director Nix states there is no way to know how many pets have been saved by the HOBO FOUNDATION they have been a God send to this shelter.

Pete " the pound puppy " is a local celebrity. Several thousand copies of Pete's book have been put in the hands of young people. From schools to churches the message to care for animals is spreading fast !!!
