I'm so proud of you guys and the entire group from Saginaw!
From what I read the budget for the facility is "just under $800,000" with 7 full time and 3 part time employees.
Yet the euthanasia rate is around 50%. :( WTH?!
With a budget like that and volunteer help doing alot of the work there is no excuse for the poor quality of care.
Our budget is no where near that yet all dogs are vaccinated, flea treated and health issues taken care of as soon as they arrive at the shelter. Unless it's an owner surrender with vet records..

Is there any possibility of the SAVE group taking over the shelter?

Very good job!! Keep up the good work. The animals would thank you if they could. Everyone of them that ends up with a loving home makes a happy spot in the world. I am a firm believer in happy spots - everyone / thing needs them

Val has resigned.
Any chance the volunteer group could take over all but county employees like animal control officers?

Ahhhh! I am going to go look at updates in a minute. I pray this means a good change is coming for the shelter.

It matters to the one you save.
