FRIENDS OF IVINS ANIMAL SHELTER; LINDA ELWELL , PRESIDENT
We are in the summer months and the heat is very dangerous for pets. PLEASE make sure you do not leave pets outside for an extended period and do not take them with you if they must stay in the car. It takes less than 5 minutes for the interior of a locked car to reach a temperature that will kill an animal. Keep your pets safe because FIAS wants everyone to have a great summer.
FIAS had a very special opportunity to host Glen Beeby, Good 4 Utah Report-er Salt Lake City, on a tour of our animal shelter and dinner. He is very interested in the “No Kill” policy by ordinance for both Ivins and Santa Clara. He was impressed with the facility and hopefully will be able to do a story on FIAS in the near future.
As we prepare for Swiss Days, we are looking for volunteers to assist with the FIAS booth. If you would like to help, please use the contact information be-low. Because of the heat we do not have pets at the event but we have valuable information as well as adoption books with all of the homeless pets shown. Please plan to stop by and say hello. We always look forward to participating in the event.
Our “Wish for the Month” is Purina Kitten Chow and scoopable litter. We are in kitten season and several adorable kittens are available for adoption. FIAS appreciates your support of this program because it helps us to maintain a healthy diet for all of the homeless pets.
Please “Celebrate Freedom” by adopting a homeless pet today. During July pets that have been in the shelter for a long time will have a reduced adoption fee. Featured dogs and cats will be on Petfinder.com and Friends of Ivins Animal Shelter Facebook page. A pet rescued from a shelter loves differently and will become your BFF. Featured dogs will be available for $15 and featured cats will be available for $5. A few adoption fees will be waived to approved adopters. Please visit the shelter and rescue a pet during the FIAS Celebrate Freedom Adoption Promotion.
The goal of FIAS is to assist homeless pets as well as pets with families. The FIAS Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic still has appointments available for 2016.
The free FIAS Food Pantry for your pets is also available if you are struggling. It is our goal to keep pets with their families when possible. Please use the contact information below for more information.
