Umm- your getting your information from--Where??

Cite your source please.

IMHS is run on strictly donations and before you make such a comment perhaps you should volunteer for a space of time-??

Talking potential libel suit!

So why did you quit voluteering?
You find it a problem that they have a paid staff?
Volunteering and fostering are great endeavors, however volunteers often do not have the same commitment as a paid staff. Fostering is in your own home so it doesnt involve the commitment of getting in your car during a snow storm, to feed some abandoned animals.
The animals in their care depend on being fed on a regular basis as well as providing a sanitary environment.
here is the link http://www.imhs.org/index.php

Thanks Bubbles-couldn't have said it better.

Even the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army has a paid administrative staff.
Paying the heat, rent,water and electric bills to stay in operation tends to take most the $$
The folks running the IMHS now are the most dedicated to the animals I've ever seen at IMHS in the past 10 years.
And for folks to donate $10.00 ( buying and donating a bag of dog or cat food )is a small thing to ask.
I am not associated with IMHS other than a community member that helps out with food and supply drives.
If you don't want to donate then don't- but please refrain from slanderous comments.

Bought some doggie chow at Costco today and will bring it by on Monday or Tuesday! Wish I could adopt someone... but we've got a full house!

If folks are still wanting to donate, and Pine Junction is not convenient for you, you can drop off at Conifer Veterinary Hospital (at the old Safeway) and I can deliver to IMHS. :hugegrin:

THANK YOU ONE AND ALL FOR YOUR DONATIONS!

It helps to know the homeless will have food for the Holidays! And they can never have too much at IMHS- it all is used in a very fast time period!

THANKS AGAIN SO VERY MUCH! :multi: :multi: :multi: :multi: :multi:
