Rescue Rocks AGAIN!
Angie Pritchett

PAWS reached a milestone in 2011. Just a couple of days left in the year & the Animal Shelter Rescue Program pulled their 200th dog of the year. C.C., a yellow lab mix was at the end of her 7 day hold & was on the put to sleep list at the shelter because her owners didn't come & claim her. Each year OPAS has to put down thousands of animals because there is just no room for them at the shelter. Building cages isn't the answer, turning OPAS into a No Kill Shelter isn't the answer, even rescue & adoption isn't the answer even though it is a vital part of helping these numbers. Spay & Neuter is the only answer. If you would like more information about the Animal Shelter Rescue program please visit our rescue page. You can watch the new segment about our milestone at Help us make 2012 an even better year by sponsoring an animal, become a foster or volunteer at our monthly offsite.
