Volunteer Spotlight--The Saline Animal League

Posted Monday, October 8, 2012, at 9:51 PM

Hank lived at the Shelter for a very long time, and we despaired of ever finding him a home. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Saline Animal League taking Hank to Kansas City many, many, many times, he finally found a family to call his own.
The Saline Animal League has been in existence since 1997, and have been volunteering time, energy and many, many dollars to the Marshall Animal Shelter ever since. The SAL works in very close partnership with Shelter staff and the City of Marshall, coordinating and funding all of our veterinary needs including spays/neuters, immunizations, worming, medicine and general vet care. The SAL also does the amazing feat of packing their little white van full of dogs and cats and hauling them to Kansas City area PetSmart stores every Saturday for adoption. In 2011, 40% of the adoptions from the Marshall Animal Shelter occurred through this program. It is no exaggeration to say that a huge number of dogs and cats owe their lives to the SAL and the efforts this organization makes on their behalf. THANK YOU to the Saline Animal League for being a part of our Team!! And congratulations on their 15th anniversary of serving dogs and cats in Saline County!!

The Saline Animal League meets at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month at the Marshall Public Library. Anyone who cares about animals is welcome to attend.
