It is no longer news that many animals have either been abandoned treated badly by their owners. Most of these animals as a result of harsh weather conditions and sometimes even severe health conditions and starvation. Domestic animals are not equipped with the ability to survive in the wild. This is where animal shelters come in. Several shelters have been erected in several cities to ensure that these animals are well catered for, and eventually sent to new and loving homes.
Some animals, by the time they are rescued by the shelter, are found in a rather deplorable state, many are wounded with matted hair, many are ill, and some are already approaching death. When the animals are rescued, the loving people of the shelter ensure that they are well fed, vaccinated against diseases, and lovingly nursed back to health. It is a marvelous opportunity to see animals that could barely move initially, frolic and prance about once they are in better care.
It is sometimes difficult to gather funds to be able to take good care of the animals. Without financial aid from the state or local budgets, the shelter in Kasper city sets up fund raising activities where caring citizens take part in the bid to raise money for these animals. Several citizens also donate to the shelter using their credit cards. The money that is gained is usually used to take care of and feed the animals, pay for their veterinary consultations and medications and also to pay for the vaccinations that the animals are giving to ensure that they remain in great health.
The Facilities of the Shelter
In conforming to the standards of an animal shelter, Kasper City has 2 pods with several large indoor and outdoor kennels. There are also many rooms for cats and other smaller animals. Kasper shelter has a large piece of land, about 5 acres for animals to play and exercise each day. The shelter usually takes in domestic animals, however, the personnel never receive more animals than they can cater for. This makes sure that each animal gets the best treatment that they deserve before being adopted.The other rooms in addition to the animal rooms are grooming rooms, visiting rooms, offices, storerooms, kitchens, and rooms for the laundry. Due to the good work that the shelter does, animals that are brought in are adopted within a month, creating room for more animals. The adopting families are schooled on how to properly care for their new pets so that the new pets can thrive and live happily in their new homes.
Animal cruelty is becoming more rampant because of the apathy that people have toward the animals around them. One way to be of help to the shelter is to report any incident of cruelty to animals so that these animals are rescued in time. Another perfect way to be a part of this rising movement is to make a donation. Since the shelter receives no money from the state, it thrives on the donations of several people as well as the monthly and annual fundraising. No donation is too small to make a difference. Payments can be made using your credit card. Make a donation today and be a part of it.
