Welcome to the Tri-Lakes Humane Society!
The Hill is Sliding Down on Us!
As you may or may not know, our Shelter is built into a steep hill and last winter in the heavy rains, earth started sliding down. We need to do some urgent work to stop it sliding and flooding this year. All donations towards this will be gratefully received. Please mark your checks/PayPal donations "Hill Slide".
'PETS OF THE MONTH'
January Cats of the Month is Larry
Larry is a 1.5 year old male who came into the shelter with his brother last April. He is a great cat and we don't understand why he keeps getting over looked. He came to the shelter as a stray and have been here way too long. He gets along well with all his cat buddies and he is a staff favorite. This gray beauty needs a good home.
Our January Dog of the month is Phoebe!
Phoebe is a 1 year old female Hound/Shepherd mix. She is such a sweet girl and loves to go for walks. She will be a great companion and just look at the face. She gets along well with other dogs in the shelter. She was found as a stray with her mother and 1 littermate.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS
There are a lot of Branson area donors to our Shelter, and recipients of Paw Prints.
If anyone in the Branson area is willing to volunteer a little time now and then for fundraising activities, please call the Shelter at (417) 272-8113 and leave a message for Carolyn to let her know. You will get a call back
INTAKE and ADOPTION FEES
Many people decline to pay the $20 intake fee for animals. It is not much, just $20, but it does help towards all the expenses we have for animals before they are able to go to their forever homes. Adoption fees for adult dogs is $100, puppies $125 and cats $85.
Some animals come to us with veterinary records showing they have been spay/neutered and are up-to-date on Rabies and other shots. However, this is not the norm so we have to give dogs Rabies shots and all the other shots dogs need, heartworm treatment/preventative, plus spay/neuter. The same for cats. The cost of all this for an animal that has no record showing they are up-to-date can be around $180-$250+ per animal, depending on their age and if they are healthy when they come in – not to mention vet bills, food and the cost of kennel workers to clean and care for them for as long as we have them.
All our money comes from donations, and we have some wonderful generous supporters but never enough, so, if you need to drop off animals with us, please pay the Intake Fee if at all possible. Every little bit helps.
