FRIENDS OF IVINS ANIMAL SHELTER; LINDA ELWELL , PRESIDENT
There have been personnel changes at the Ivins Animal Shelter & Adoption Center. Todd O’Bray is currently the Shelter Manager, Stacey is the Animal Control Officer and Patrick is on duty weekends. While there is a new face at the shelter, everyone is dedicated to the homeless pets and “Saving Them All”. Remember Ivins and Santa Clara are “No Kill” by ordinance. We invite you to drop by and meet Todd and tour the shelter. Volunteers are always needed and appreciated. For more information please contact the shelter 435-628-1049.
Our “Wish for the Month” is volunteers, Purina Kitten, Cat & Dog Chow and scoopable litter. Due to the number of cats in the shelter the scoopable litter is really needed and appreciated. Please remember you can order pet supplies on Amazon.com and have them shipped to the shelter. Be sure to SMILE for FIAS when you order for the shelter or when you do personal shopping. Purchasing pet supplies and SMILING FOR FIAS is a double benefit for the homeless pets.
Fall is here, what a beautiful time of year. The cooler weather is good for our pets, however Halloween can be very dangerous. Please keep all candy and human teats away from your pets, especially chocolate. Trick or Treat is fun for us but it can be very frightening for pets. Please keep them secure and safe during October because they are counting on you.
FIAS encourages all cat owners to take advantage of the FIAS Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic. The number of unwanted kittens and cats is sad and overwhelming. PLEASE spay/neuter your pets because it not only prevents over population it is a health benefit to your pet. For more information please contact FIAS.
The responsibility of assisting two cities with the “No Kill” program keeps FIAS very busy. We would welcome volunteers to assist the Board in a variety of ways and you may not even need to leave your home. The homeless pets are counting on us to find their new “forever homes” and that is a big job! For more information please use the contact information below.
October will feature fantastic homeless pets with reduced adoption fees. Please follow FIAS on Facebook, Petfinder.com and flyers posted at City Hall for more information. We encourage everyone to use Facebook to spread the word about our homeless pets, adoption promotions and events. We adopt nationwide so share with family, friends and ask them to like our page and share it. Facebook is a great way to support the homeless pets in the comfort of your home.
FIAS will sponsor a “Christmas Open House” at the shelter. Please watch for more information about date and time. FIAS will provide tasty treats and a few surprises. It is our goal to have an empty shelter on December 23rd. Please help us accomplish our goal so all of the homeless pets will have a very Merry Christmas.
