Unfortunately, there is no shortage of abandoned, abused, and neglected cats in Mason County -- and the county and City of Shelton have yet to step up to the plate and do anything at all about this public health problem.
We are unsalaried volunteers who give much time, energy and money to this cause, but our present resources are simply not enough to meet all the need. Our ability to respond and help in a given situation can often depend on timing -- at the given moment do we have available space, what does the budget look like, and could our resources to save lives be better spent elsewhere? The harsh reality is that no matter what choices we make, kitties somewhere are going to suffer an agonizing death.
We frequently provide advice, supplies, and what else we can to help people handle matters on their own. Many hands make for a light load, and if we all pitch in and do what we can, more gets done. We have some articles in the Care section that might help.
If this doesn't seem enough when you get a box of kittens dumped in your front yard, we suggest you contact your city and county representatives and let them know about it.
