During this unprecedented time in our history. The COVID-19 pandemic is having an impact on all of us and the way we live our daily lives.
We want you to know that Animal Lifeline is still here doing what we’ve done for 35 years; saving the lives of special needs dogs and cats while keeping everyone safe. We are working diligently to keep our small shelter staff employed so when life returns to normal we are ready to continue saving animals in need!! Our staff and volunteers make the shelter what it is.
The animals need us now more than ever and we just can’t let them down. They are depending on us to maintain their specialized diets, medication schedules, physical therapy, rehab sessions and of course…they need and DESERVE our love and attention. In fact, we know that it’s our attention to detail that makes ALI a step above the rest.
Sadly, due to the current pandemic, we had to make the difficult decision to close our Thrift Shop temporarily; the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, donors, customers, and the community had to be our priority.
The sale proceeds from our Thrift Shop are vital in supporting our mission of saving, healing and finding forever homes for special needs animals. We don’t know how long the shop will be closed but we do know that it will have a devastating impact on our organization and our budget. As a non-profit, we do not operate with a surplus – all money raised is used towards our mission.
It is now, more than ever, when every dollar counts. Many of our regular volunteers are practicing social distancing & have paused their time at the Shelter, this has led to the need to increase staff hours to ensure our animals receive the level of care they deserve.
Won’t you please consider making a donation today? No amount is too small or too large! The animals in our care today and those that will need us tomorrow are counting on all of us.
Together, we will get through this, and come out stronger on the other side. We hope you and your family stay safe and healthy.
Thank you so much for your continued support of our mission.
