Animal Shelter Conditions Are Poor for Humans? — 2 Comments

  1. I am amazed at how much effort it takes to have a well-run shelter. Money is always a problem–ours improved when they decided to fund-raise instead of being wholly dependent on State and Local government. They encouraged volunteers, cooperation with local veterinarians, run low cost spay neuter programs, and set reasonable goals. The time they hold pets has increased from 5 days to several months over the past two decades. Was it easy? No. Was it worth it? Most definitely, Yes!

  2. Valparaiso is a northern state that may experience a few weeks of 80-90 degree weather during summer. August can be very warm, but there should be plenty of fans running. Not at all like Florida where fans can have no impact. Hand washing and dish washing feeders needs to be done in disinfecting hot water.
    I’m more concerned about how they may deal with the brutal cold there.
