Readers Say Thanks
I wanted to thank the Post Independent for continuing to support our animal community by running the recent “Animals Ink” section. It was great to see shelter volunteers highlighted. Everyone working in animal welfare knows that we literally could not do what we do without the support of our wonderful volunteers. As noted in an advertisement we ran, The Barnyard has teamed up with CARE to offer 5 free days of daycare to adopted dogs. I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank the many other businesses and individuals that have continued to support us in our mission to provide safety and care for homeless animals and education for the pet-owning public: Laurie Raymond and High Tails, Nancy Williams and The Shaggy Dog, Deb Keller and the Dogg House, Dr. Mease and Glenwood Vet Clinic, as well as all of the valley’s superb veterinarian facilities; Red Mountain Wine and Spirits, The Double Dog Pub, Petco, The Roaring Fork Kennel Club, Terena Thomas, Laura Van Dyne and many more – as well as other local animal rescues that share their resources. A sincere and deeply heartfelt thanks goes out to our much-needed foster families – these people truly save the lives of many animals. I cannot help but take this time to remind everyone to please, please, spay and neuter your pets. There are many resources that can help you cover the cost of the surgery. Call 947-9173 for more info. If you are not a professional breeder there are few reasons to not, PLEASE, sterilize your pet. It is only February and we currently have 3 different litters of puppies. Two of these litters were accidental – a male jumped the fence and another male came in through a doggie door. CARE now has the responsibility of caring for, feeding, spaying and neutering these dogs – and yes, finding all 23 puppies homes. Thanks, again, to a community that cares. Tracey Yajko, Training and Behavior Manager & CARE Staff
