The Shelter received this nice note this morning. Wanted to share their kind words to all who help us do what we can to help the animals.

Hi, we adopted our little kitty back on May 23rd. and we just wanted to say "thank you" to whoever is responsible for the little hand made crocheted blankie she received. That was such a sweet thing and she still loves her blankie. For someone to take the time and make something so special for the little sweethearts at the shelter, that's really so nice and thoughtful. Also, to everyone there who works to care for all the little angels, "thank you" from The Van Deusen Family. You are all very much appreciated 😍

Special thanks to Blackfoot Animal Shelter and Rescue from Idaho. They rescued 12 dogs from us this weekend. Wheels for Paws placed another 8 and then we had two other rescue groups pull a few more. So much appreciation to all involved for helping us save our Turlock pets.
