Animal Network Initiatives

No Kill Medical Fund

Until a few years ago, Shelter pets with any medical issues were routinely euthanized.  That changed when Animal Network stepped up to provide critical medical care for sick or wounded pets.  In 2013, our No Kill Medical Fund paid to treat 140 heart worm positive dogs.

Other medical issues are supported as well and we save the lives of dogs picked up by Animal Services, like Jerry, who was hit by a car and required surgery, Sparky, who had a badly embedded collar, and Sugar, a pregnant cat with infected sores on her neck.  These pets and others like them get the care they need thanks to your generous donations.

Capital Improvement Contributions

Animal Network first began assisting our County Shelter back in the 90’s when they desperately needed a washer and dryer.  Years later, we helped with their ventilation system to prevent the spread of air borne virus in the cat room.  Most recently, we provided play yards where the dogs can exercise and socialize.  We are proud to be able to contribute the the health and well being of the county’s most needy dogs and cats.

Healthy Hearts

Only by the bite of an infected mosquito. There’s no other way dogs get heartworms. And there’s no way to tell if a mosquito is infected. That’s why prevention is so important.
