Would you like to help?
Would you like to purchase a yarn bowl and know all the money will go to @stafford_animal_shelter?
Wouldn't it be heartwarming to know while you craft away the hours, you can glance at your bowl and know you helped ensure the safety and comfort of so many animals in a tiny community in Montana?
On June 13, a freak flash flood of the Yellowstone river destroyed the Stafford Animal Shelter including computers, surgical equipment, everything... it is a total loss. Staff lost cars and shelter vehicles are lost.
While they were making preparations to evacuate the shelter, water starting pouring in the windows. Thanks to a brave crew, all staff and animals got out safely. Some animals had to be taken by a kayak rescue team.
Members of the team put themselves in harms way and waded in waist deep water, hoisting dogs, cats and other small animals out of the shelter.
Animals were moved to foster homes, other shelters, and local boarding facilities.
The shelter needs help rebuilding from the ground up... now that the animals are safe and being cared for, the team is accessing whether they will rebuild on the same site or if they need a new location.
The only nonprofit animal care facility in Park County, they serve the people and pets of the greater Southwestern Montana community including Gallatin, Sweet Grass, Stillwater, Meagher, Fergus counties and beyond.
As the only Shelter in the region that accepts all lost or unwanted pets; not just dogs and cats, they have a "Zoo" where they can care for a wide range of pets from exotics to rodents to birds to small mammals. They also serve as the care facility for animals running at large, cruelty cases, and emergencies by city and county animal control officers. Of all the animals they take in approximately half are reclaimed and half are adopted.
They receive no state, federal or other funding.
