Building a PAWsitive Future...
A Campaign to build a new Shelby County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center
To ensure that Shelby County can continue to provide the care and support that animals require and need, the time has come to support building a new Animal Shelter.
This new state of the art Animal Shelter and Adoption Center will allow SCARF and Shelter staff to give HOPE to more of the abandoned and abused animals of Shelby County.
It will be a much more comfortable facility for both dogs and cats until they find their loving forever homes. It will also help to provide better services, increase adoptions and engage more volunteers.
The current Shelter, built in 1971 and expanded in 1998, is no longer able/adequate to serve the needs of our growing pet population. It is literally busting at the seams.
Features of the NEW shelter will include:
Our Campaign Goal is $2.4 million
When this goal is reached the NEW state of art Shelby County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center will be constructed at 840 Gearhart Road in Sidney. At just over 8,100 square feet the NEW Shelter will have twice the space as the current one. The new dog kennel & cat areas will be much brighter, with natural light, and will be constructed of material that helps with noise control. This will help to provide an atmosphere that is less stressful for the animals.
Let's build it FOR THE ANIMALS!!!
The County and SCARF compliment each other in many ways. While the County does the “have to” the Foundation raises the money for the “want to”. By donating time and money for this much needed new facility, SCARF continues in its effort to save 100% of the adoptable animals at the Shelby County Animal Shelter.
Together we are Building a PAWSitive Future!
