Care During Crisis
We care for people and their pets in crisis through referrals to our Domestic Violence Assistance Program and by providing shelter to animals while their owners are hospitalized or in other emergency situations. Our new facility will enable us to provide sheltering that is less stressful and safer for these animals.
Last fiscal year, we reunited 879 lost pets with their families. With our improved facility, we will be able to expand the days and hours that people can be re-united. This will mean less time in the shelter for these animals.
1786 pets found new, loving homes through our shelters last fiscal year. Our improved facility will be more welcoming for people, and more comforting for the animals. This means even more animals will be able to find loving homes.
Keeping People and their Pets Together
We get hundreds of calls each year from owners who want to surrender their pet for financial reasons. Our goal is to help keep pets with their families by providing better access to veterinary care, pet care counseling, or other resources whenever possible. Our new facilities will enable us to better address these issues.
Trap Neuter Return
Last fiscal year, we performed 1,010 free spay and neuter surgeries on stray, feral and free-roaming cats in Lane County. Our improved veterinary clinic will expand our ability to address feral and free-roaming cats, reducing feral cat over-population and creating a healthier community.
