Friends Of The Shelter Program

The Humane Society has a program called Friends Of The Shelter. Dedicated volunteers and Humane Society board members work together to foster a very close working relationship with the Calloway County Animal Shelter. Many folks are unaware that the Humane Society is seperate from the Animal Shelter. The shelter operates off funding from the Fiscal Court of Calloway County whereas the Humane Society receives all its funds from donations and membership dues. The Humane Society receives no governmental money at all. Humane Society board member Suzy Crook heads up the program. The program works with dozens of rescue organizations including the North Shore Animal League (see the North Shore Animal League folder). Because of the Humane Society's Friends of the Shelter Program, hundreds of puppies, dogs, cats and kittens, have been spared an early death due to animal overpopulation. The Society also bought a digital camera for volunteers to use when photographing all the animals entering the shelter. The photos are placed on PetFinder.com along with a description of the animal. Because of this, we've placed unwanted Calloway County dogs into homes as far away as Texas, Oklahoma and Maryland. Kat Fick, another Society volunteer and board member, heads up the feline end of the program by arranging to take cats to PetsMart in order to find permanent homes. She also arranges the cat adoptions here in Calloway County. All this is accomplished by VOLUNTEERS! It's true-"Every time the Humane Society helps an animal, we're also helping a person".
