Hard work and determination pay off

A few months ago the Terrell Animal Shelter started a transition to a no-kill shelter.  With the change came a name change, its now known as the Terrell Pet Adoption Center.  The change came the same time that Cilla Wichmann was made an Animal Control Officer.  Cilla has worked tirelessly to promote the center, help lost animals find their way home and find new homes for unwanted animals. In addition to those duties she also makes sure the sick and injured animals get proper vet care and checks on the animals on her days off and at night.  Check out the Facebook page and give it a 'like' to keep up to date with whats going on at the Center, and let the staff know what a great job they are doing.

Yesterday she posted some numbers for March 2012 vs March 2011. 

Check out these numbers!
Dogs into the shelter 2012-39, 2011-61
Cats into the shelter 2012-10, 2011-9

Animals adopted 2012-31, 2011-20

We decided long ago to own only rescue dogs and haven't regretted it for a minute. In addition to supporting children's' groups, our charitable donations always go to animal shelters. Hoorah for all people who support and work for pet rescue shelters!
