ONE YEAR LATER, ANIMAL RESCUE CORPS REMAINS COMMITTED TO HELPING THE ANIMALS OF PAGE COUNTY

LURAY, VA. – International non-profit animal protection organization Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) is back in Page County this week working with the Page County Animal Shelter conducting a comprehensive, expert review and assessment of its shelter operations. Assessments and consultations are one of the services ARC provides to rescues, shelters, and sanctuaries across North America to help them maximize their operations within their means and set goals for future progression, in addition to assisting law enforcement agencies with large scale animal rescues.

Sponsored by ARC, utilizing grant funds from the Mental Insight Foundation, this assessment is part of ARC’s continued commitment to the animals and residents of Page County, which started a year ago on July 3rd, 2014, when ARC assisted the Page County Sheriff’s Office in shutting down a local puppy mill.  The assessment will cover all areas of operations from budgets, shelter function, policies and procedures, to programs such as adoptions, spay/neuter, and community outreach and education.

“We are thrilled to offer this service to this deserving community that has already made significant advances in their animal shelter in the last ten years,” said Animal Rescue Corps President Scotlund Haisley. “The citizens of Page County took a stance against animal cruelty and showed up in droves last summer to help ARC care for the animals rescued from the puppy mill in Luray. This assessment is a way ARC is continuing our commitment to the animals and good people of Page County.”

Last year, after the puppy mill rescue, dubbed Operation Liberty Dogs, ARC donated funds to help rehabilitate the outdoor dog run area for the Page County Animal Shelter, providing a more secure and more easily cleaned exercise space for the dogs.

“I am glad to be working with ARC again, this time to assess our shelter and to help us get the most out of our programs and budget. This collaboration will continue to directly benefit the animals and residents of Page County,” said Director of the Page County Animal Shelter Jami Buracker, “We look forward to working with them to plan a roadmap for our community and shelter’s future.”

In addition to spending time in the shelter and meeting with individuals and organizations that play a role in its operations this week, ARC will conduct an animal behavior and handling training class on Thursday, July 2nd for the shelter employees, volunteers, and other animal related organizations at the Goodrich Center in Stanley from 5 – 9 p.m.

Animal Rescue Corps would like to express our gratitude to the Mental Insight Foundation for their operational grant, which made the assessment possible, and to Madeline Farms for facilitating use of the Goodrich Center.

    I was so happy to be a part of the rescue at page last year. I have always thought I wanted to help them too (page county shelter) because they were wonderful people offering loving shelter for their pets – and promoting them on facebook on a regular and aggressive basis. I wish our own shelter in my county was so good. xoxo
