When the COVID-19 virus hit, we were doing pretty well financially and were able to provide veterinary care, medications, and food for the animals at the shelter and in foster care. Life was good. THEN...the evening of March 12, we were told we would be vacating the new shelter we'd just move into, everything but the animals. We were working out of 2 buildings. March 17th we were told only essential personnel could enter the building where the animals were housed and only 2 employees at a time could be there. 3 days later, we got an urgent call from shelter operations, all animals had to be out of the shelter by 5 pm that day or they'd have to be put down because no one would be allowed into the shelter to care for them, URGENT SOS went out to the community. By 3:30 that day, we had placed over 123 animals into foster care. That is when the drain on the finances came in. Fosters needed food for the animals they took in and we couldn't get into the shelter to get it (bag after bag of dog, cat, puppy, & kitten food). Funds had to be spent. We had some donations that volunteers were picking up, but that wasn't enough to cover it all. The animals also needed their medications ($$), worming medications ($$), emergency vet care ($$$$). New kittens were showing up that needed milk replacement, nursers, and miracle nipples. ($$). Supplies at hand, one volunteer drove over 200 miles daily. Sure not all was to deliver supplies, animals were still being adopted!!(yeah) BUT The bank account started dwindling fast. Planned events had been cancelled. Our usual donors were out of work so our donations dried up. The bank account is getting lower all the time and we still have bills from veterinarians and medications costs that need to be paid. Please help us help the animals if you can. Even a dollar or two would help us out.
