Thank you from the Humane Society

Well finally 2013 is gone. Here at the shelter it has been one hectic year with a lot of trial and tribulations, but for 2014 things are looking up. People that were busting their butts to keep the shelter going in 2013 will just keep on busting their butts to help the animals and keep the shelter going in 2014. The public, businesses and media in 2013 were exceptionally generous and we hope it keeps up and grows in 2014, because without all of you folks we may not have made it.
