Non-Profits Helping Animals and People

Local News Stories

Two non-profits, one that serves people the other that helps animals are teaming up to help each other during the Month of January.

The Animal Shelter Society is offering a discount on cats this month. The adoption fee is just $24 when you bring in 24 cans of people food for Christ’s Table.

Christ’s Table is in the midst of restocking their shelves after the holidays. Every meal they make takes around 100 to 120 cans of food.

“When January, February, March rolls around it typically isn’t a giving time so when partners like this can step up and recognize the fact that what you’re doing still happens all year even though the giving season’s over it makes you feel really good,” said Executive Director of Christ’s Table Keely Warden.

One of the cats needing adopted is 6-year-old Bandit. His owners had medical issues, which forced them to give up this friendly domestic long hair.

The Animal Shelter’s Executive Director said they try to get pets adopted within 30 days of being at the shelter.

“It’s important to get them out, get them adopted and get them into a new family because it does create stress, then the stress reduces their immune system and then they start getting sick,” explained Executive Director of the Animal Shelter Society Jody Murray.

If you would like to support the work of the shelter there are still tickets available for their Comedy Club Fundraiser on Saturday, January 12 at Bryan Place. Tickets are $20 and food and drinks will be available.
