BUILDING UPDATE: As of March 23, 2018
Construction: The new heating and air exchange systems have been installed and are operating very well, the main shelter building is a comfortable 60 degrees day and night. In process of being installed is a new boiler that will heat both kennel floors. In the Isolation Kennel area the kennel partition blocks have been laid both inside and in the outside kennel run areas.
Operations: Pet Pals had our initial inspection from Dr. Bob Robinson, Michigan Department of Agriculture, on Wednesday March 21st. Dr. Robinson met with Ed Brondyke, Tim Newhouse, and Mark Rivard at the new animal shelter building. This is the first and very important step in becoming licensed to operate the animal shelter. The meeting went very well with Dr. Robinson offering many very good insights into shelter operations.
This post is to help clarify some confusion/misunderstandings regarding what Luce County Pet Pals is able to help with. Luce County Pet Pals is not able to act as animal control. This means that Pet Pals is unable to pick up stray animals roaming the streets. Pet Pals is not able to step in on animal cruelty/neglect cases. If you have knowledge of or have been witness to animal/cruelty neglect, please contact local law enforcement. When there are foster homes available, Pet Pals will attempt to place found pets or surrendered pets. In most cases we will ask those who have found a pet or need to surrender a pet to keep the pet in their home as we have so few foster homes available. We will help advertise the found pets or pets in need of new homes. Pet Pals does not euthanize cats or dogs if placement cannot be found. When funds are available, we will help families fix their pets if they are unable to afford the cost. This is a short list of what Pet Pals is able to help with . We are in need of volunteers, everything from help updating the Pet Pals website to help with construction of the shelter. Meetings are the last Wednesday of every month at 11:00 a.m. in the meeting room of Zellar's Village Inn on M-123 next to the Holiday Station Store. Come join us!!
