I’d like to give a well-deserved shoutout to a single of The Tribune’s partners, Secure Location for Pets.
The nonprofit that serves El Paso and Teller counties combines animal welfare with “compassion and a need to simplicity the stress for terminally ill pet owners through our local community,” states its mission.
Safe Spot for Animals also can help pet homeowners who endure from Alzheimer’s illness or dementia and can no for a longer period care for their beloved animals.
You may well have recognized a latest addition to our internet pages, the Safe and sound Place for Pets “Pet(s) of the 7 days,” that includes a doggy or cat whose proprietor is no for a longer period capable to offer treatment for.
In accordance to Carole Casner, Harmless Place for Pets placement program director, Tribune viewers have responded enthusiatically to the weekly calls for new people for these beloved animals.
She wrote in a recent e mail heralding a results tale for a pair of bonded cats, “Jynx and Bailey from the very last two weeks bought adopted!! And the adopters report they observed them featured in the Tri Lakes Tribune! Quite a few many thanks.”
Casner explained the nonprofit not long ago expanded its mission to support the animals of entrepreneurs shed to COVID-19 to satisfy the requires of the group.
When a person is too unwell to treatment for their pet, it is a main supply of aid when their animals discover new properties, Casner mentioned.
Frequently the animals that are showcased in our internet pages are senior animals, which can be difficult to locate households for. But the pet-loving visitors of The Tribune never appear to be to intellect if the animals are a lot more mature.
The Colorado Springs-centered Risk-free Position for Animals held its 2nd Paws for Celebration Gala Saturday. The sold out event raised money or the 501©(3) business, and also identified the much more than 60 volunteers who guidance it, as very well as its committed board and other people and teams who help with the animals’ treatment and placement.
Distinctive recognition was offered to Joanne Bonacelli, who started the charity 26 yrs ago soon after she and other hospice nurses witnessed firsthand the heartache men and women practical experience when confronted with the uncertainty of their pets’ upcoming after they can no lengthier care for them.
Proceeds from the celebration go towards the organization’s operations, animal treatment and other systems. The animals that arrive to the shelter may perhaps have dental or clinical desires that have to have to be addressed before they can be adopted, and Harmless Area would make certain the animals are cared for.
“Our mission enables us to establish a group wherever terminally sick individuals have the aid for their pets’ treatment and high-quality of everyday living, even if they are not able to supply that care by themselves. We are a volunteer-operate business, and we delight ourselves on our passion and commitment to our animals and our local community,” states the organization’s internet site.
