Prayers were answered this past weekend at the Allegan Animal Shelter. We closed the doors Friday evening dejected and feeling helpless. All week cats and dogs rained on our little shelter, many were strays picked up by animal control, but many were owner surrenders too. We were over capacity. Dogs sitting in crates in the garage, and kittens filled condos in the lobby.
We asked for your prayers and help from other shelters. Those prayers were answered and calls for help fulfilled by our friends across the state. Eight dogs and dozens of cats and kittens were transported to other shelters and rescue groups opening a small hole in our shelter. We are still over capacity on cats ( as I’m sure most are ) but it is manageable, and we opened enough kennels to get our dogs out of crates and on comfortable beds.We also adopted out two dogs and signed up to new fosters that took out are beloved Lotus and Neveah, now resting comfortably in homes after many months at the shelter.
Thank you to our great friends.
