No Room for Rover

No Room for Rover

By on Mar 16, 2014 in Featured, Front Page, Fund Raising | 0 comments

Dear Residents of Prattville and Autauga County, Autauga County’s pet overpopulation numbers are alarming.  January- November of 2013, the Prattville Autauga Humane Society (PAHS) took in over 2,500 animals; this number includes strays, owner surrenders, and animals gathered by Animal Control officers. It is a shocking statistic of which most local animal lovers are not aware. While some of our cats and dogs are adopted, find permanent foster homes, or are sent to rescue organizations, others do not have such a bright future. As a result of Prattville and Autauga County’s increase in population, we have outgrown the shelter’s capacity. We can safely house 85 animals at one time. Since 2011 we have been raising money for our “No Room for Rover” kennel expansion project, which is estimated to cost approximately $150,000. To date, we have raised roughly $103,000. The new construction will include the following additions: 18 indoor/outdoor dog runs, a small dog/puppy room, a cat room, a feeding/bathing/work space, a medical examination area, and a storage room. State law requires that new in-takes must be held for seven days unless reclaimed. We need the additional kennels to keep new in-takes segregated from adoptable animals awaiting adoption. PAHS wants to begin building immediately; however, we cannot until we are closer to our monetary goal. We are asking for your financial support. Please consider making as generous a gift as you are able. It will be deeply appreciated and is also tax-deductible. Checks should be made payable to PAHS and mailed to P.O. Box 680697, Prattville, AL 36068. You may donate electronically via our website, www.prattvilleautaugahumane.org. Thank you for considering this request. If you have any questions about “No Room for Rover,” please call the shelter at 334-358-2882 and ask for Shelter Manager Claudia Rigsby. Together we can make an impact in our community: Protect-Adopt-Help-Serve! Sincerely, The Prattville Autauga Humane Society Board of...
