Help Emmet County Animal Shelter

$1,640 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 34 people in 36 months
During the night of Saturday, February 7th, vandals broke into the fledgling Emmet County Animal Shelter by forcing open the front door.  After getting inside, they damaged screens of the cat enclosures and did hundreds of dollars worth of further damage to the facility.

Thankfully, none of the animals were harmed or escaped, but it brings up the worry that they might if it happens again.

The Emmet County Animal Shelter is new to our community after fighting hard for years to get permission to build a facility. The community has supported it enthusiastically and is devastated that someone could so callously harm something whose sole intent is to help provide a voice and care for beings who do not have a voice of their own.

The animal shelter is a no-kill shelter staffed by volunteers, so every penny is needed to pay for overhead costs.  Paying for these repairs will be incredibly difficult for them to do.

I want to raise enough money to not only help them cover the cost of repairs, but to purchase security cameras and equipment to help deter future vandalism, and have enough extra to offer a reward for information bringing these vandals to justice.

Whether you're a member of the community, thankful for the service the shelter offers, or you live far away but have a love for animals and those who help them, please donate and help them recover from and prevent any further vandalism.

This is the shelter's website, if you're able to offer other kinds of assistance and support. www.emmetcountyanimalshelter.org

Thank you for your generosity and support!

Very sorry to hear about this group of un-evolved and thankless people, and hoping you get your repairs finished soon.
