Volunteer Work Recognized

Chippewa County Animal Shelter in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan was honored at the March 25th conference of the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance for coming in third out of 165 Michigan animal shelters for their "save rate". The study compared how many animals a shelter took in to how many were adopted or placed back with their owners. Recognition was given on the local 9 &10 T.V. News, as well as, a mention on their website. It's always rewarding to see animals that are posted on the shelter's website get adopted, and that the adoption specials make a difference; but a little public recognition of the staff and volunteer's efforts is appreciated, too. Makes me proud to be part of the team! We always knew in our hearts that we had one of the best little shelters around :-))
