COMMUNITY OUTREACH

 

LOST AND FOUND

 

The shelter keeps a current list of missing pets from our area. We also advise pet owners on the proper procedures for locating a lost pet.

 

 

TRAINING

 

The shelter staff provides telephone consultations for families who need advice on training or have concerns about their adopted pets. We can also refer you to a local professional trainer if needed.

 

 

AWS-SENIOR CATS PROGRAM

 

The Animal Welfare Society will waive 100% of the usual donation fee so that a Senior Citizen (aged 60 and over) can adopt one of our senior cats. Please contact us if interested in taking advantage of, or contributing to, AWS-Senior Cats.

 

 

HUMANE EDUCATION

 

Our Humane Education Volunteer is available to present programs to church groups, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, etc. at the shelter or to visit classrooms and other groups.

 

Presentations include topics such as providing information about the shelter itself, life in an animal shelter, the importance of spaying and neutering, the human-animal bond, the truth about “puppy mills,” the feelings of loss involving a pet, responsible pet ownership, and how kids can make a difference.

 

Certain visits may include pets, and many involve humane education and the fostering of empathy and compassion through narrative.
