FHS took in over 1,700 animals in 2012Published 10:17pm Thursday, March 7, 2013
Commissioner Ray Gasperson asked if the shelter takes animals to any other parts of the country.
Mayer said they do, including routinely going to businesses like PetSmart and Petco, as well as sending quite a few to the northeast because they have a shortage of puppies and dogs.
Commissioner vice-chair Ted Owens asked if the humane society is still selling bricks for fundraising.
Coffey said yes, at $50 per brick and people can put their animals’ name on them.
Coffey also mentioned the shelter’s approximate 250 volunteers.
She said volunteering ranges from washing dogs and brushing cats to doing dishes and laundry.
“We’re very fortunate to have a lot of folks very interested and want to be involved with the humane society,” Coffey said.
