What a Year!

Friends of the S. V. Animal Shelter, Inc is grateful for all your support in 2018.  The medical care, shelter, education, and community outreach events, wouldn’t be accomplished without your support.  As the year comes to an end, we want to take a few minutes of your time to share what “We” have accomplished this year.

    — 274 pets received rabies vaccination, microchips, veterinarian exams, and city licenses.  Since the One Paw at a Time, Door to Door program started in 2015 a total of 1152 pets have received this health care and protection- so important in protecting our pets and community from rabies infection.

    — Funding assistance for an Animal Control Officer (ACO), Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center, to attend trading and certification in conducting Equine Investigations.

    — Supported construction of a safe enclosure for stray cats receiving care.

    — Provided care for over 30 sick and injured stray, shelter pets, so important in helping these pets to find a warm, loving, forever home.

    — Assisted with funding so the great volunteers at the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center could receive rabies vaccinations to provide for their health and protection.

   — Participated in Celebrating Animals, the West End Fair, Art in Park, Adopt A Fest, and Dogs and Coffee hosted by Broxton’s Coffee.

  — And thank you for supporting our fundraisers at Outback Steakhouse, Hoppin’ Grapes Beer and Wine Tasting Bar, and Chili’s.  

Looking ahead to 2019,  we will continue to provide medical care for shelter pets in need,  conducting One Paw at a Time, Door to Door clinics, education support, and participation in community outreach events.  

This coming year we will be developing a Spay/Neuter program – watch this site for details!!  And of course, the Animal Trailer.

This has been a multiple year effort and while we aren’t finished yet, we are closer to the purchase and donation of a animal trailer to provide mobile health and adoption services to the City of Sierra Vista.  We have conducted site visits to a trailer manufacture and veterinary clinic to discuss their experience using the trailer and next month will visit the owner of a second trailer type to again discuss their experience.  Having information regarding the manufacturer, specifications, and durability are key elements for our consideration in making this decision.

We look forward to building on the success of 2018 and appreciate your continuing support in 2019.

Happy New Year,

Friends of the S. V. Animal Shelter, Inc
