From Behind the Desk
It is definitely past time for me to do a blog, so, let me get to it. Animal Village NM and it's staff have been through some tough weeks. We totally ran out of money, and could not afford to pay our caregivers. Many of them had to find other jobs, myself included, to be able to make ends meet. But, our pets still needed to be cared for on a daily basis, so many of our caregivers continued to come in each day on a volunteer basis! This meant everything to our beloved rescued hearts!
But, Sunny and I were hopeless, we really thought we were going to have to close our doors. We just didn't see how we could continue.
With the help of our loving caregivers, and volunteers, we were able to persevere, and have begun to put our caregivers back on the payroll, although on a limited basis. We had several adoptions, decreasing the number of pets we have to care for, which will help make our expenses a little easier to meet.
We decided to forge ahead with plans for the Razzle Dazzle Furry Fest, in hopes that we would be able to raise the much needed funds that will help us to get caught up on our bills and keep our shelter open. We are hoping for a great turnout this Saturday. Please make plans to come out if you haven't already.
A lot of wonderful people have come together during a very difficult time, to help keep Animal Village NM open. Our hearts are hopeful that we have indeed gotten through the worst, and that the best is yet to come! But we know that we simply can NOT do this on our own. We need you! Please become a monthly sponsor! Whether you donate $5 or $50 a month, each and every amount adds up and helps keep us in the business of saving lives. Thank You!
