Animal Friends of Barbour County was organized in July, 2002. From the first day, our volunteers have been committed to the mission that no adoptable pet should be killed simply for the lack of a safe, loving home, and each of our volunteers takes pride in knowing that, because of our efforts, and the efforts of our network of rescue groups, more than 7,000 Barbour County companion animals have found homes with families that love and cherish them. Each week we receive letters, e-mails and photos from people who tell us how grateful they are to have been able to adopt such a wonderful pet. And therein lies our reward -- our joy and satisfaction in knowing that we've helped these animals find their way to people who will give them "fur-ever' homes. The happy endings give us the strength to face each day knowing that more animals will be coming in to the shelter -- more animals that need our help.
As we look ahead to the coming year, we plan to expand our network of rescue groups, continue our program of spaying/neutering cats prior to their adoption, focus on working with state legislators regarding animal welfare issues, particularly in the area of providing low cost spay/neuter services for state residents, research new ways of obtaining the funding we so desperately need, and continue our community education programs. This year we will also see the completion of a new shelter facility where we will be able to provide the best of care for the pets that so desperately need us to be there for them.
