Those efforts have included adoptions from fund raisers, where an animal is taken to show off its beautiful self to possible adopters, rescuing abandoned kittens from dumpsters, strays brought to the shelter that were found either roaming the streets or locked in barns, rescuing dogs and cats from unspeakable cruelty, and rescuing baby squirrels, birds or any other fragile member of the animal kingdom, both wild and domestic in need of survival.
This “All Four Feet” was prompted by a recent event at the shelter. On two occasions baby squirrels (17 in all) were brought to the shelter. The first babies’ mother had been killed. The later arrivals to the shelter were rescued when they fell out of a tree. At present these little ones are being bottle-fed six times a day by LCAS Manager Betsy Pratt.
Outreach is an important part of our shelter’s fundraising. Each outreach helps defray the exorbitant expenses that challenge the shelter each day, as it tries to make ends meet. One of these expenses is the on-going costs of veterinary care. This is so important to the well being of all the valuable lives that LCAS must care for each year.
If there is anyone out there who would like to help with vet costs, at this most urgent moment of paying vet bills, please ‘reach-out’ to me, either by email or telephone, and I will direct you to the proper person to contact about this on-going need for funds: email@example.com, or 586-5604.
At the moment the shelter has on its calendar a series of dates that include events that reach out to Lincoln County communities and beyond to help raise the awareness of the shelter as well as encourage adoptions from the many beautiful animals now in residence.
All of April is “Adoption Month” at the Lincoln County Animal Shelter. Please visit the shelter and choose an animal to include as an important member of your family. The shelter will also tell you stories of adopters who have found many healthy benefits by giving an animal a forever home.
The Lincoln County Animal Shelter is a gift, a treasure. I don’t know what we would do without this loving shelter in our communities. Please visit and adopt one of ours as you own.
