“ASPCA’s “”Must See”” Shelters”

ASPCA, National Shelter Outreach

 

“MUST SEE” SHELTERS


Each of these animal shelters is worth visiting. Some are small, some are large. Some are older facilities, some are brand-new. Some are run on a shoestring, some are well funded. Each shelter has something to offer organizations looking to build a shelter. Some have innovative programs, warm and inviting atmospheres, unique kenneling or an outstanding lobby or are immaculately clean. If you are planning to build a shelter — visit, visit, visit. And, take notes, compare and contrast, ask about what they feel are their strengths and weaknesses. Take the time to find out what works best for you and your community.
