With only a little over 1,200 in the human population, Glenns Ferry has an ongoing problem with stray animals. The Glenns Ferry animal control officer picked up 81 dogs in 2019. Some of them held up to 15 days. The biggest problem is keeping the animals safe in a shelter that lacks proper heat when temperatures dip down below freezing. The floors have no sealant, and after cleaning, ice occurs. The facility has no insulation, and the only source of heat is a small box heater. Smaller cities like Glenns Ferry, Hammett, and King Hill struggle to keep up with the needs of their city, and unfortunately, building a new animal shelter usually falls to the bottom of the priority list. The city of Glenns Ferry can use our help.
When cities receive a new facility, we see first hand how it empowers them, allows them to move in the right direction in helping animals, and ultimately saving lives.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
