June: Saugerties Animal Shelter
The Saugerties Animal Shelter is a municipal shelter located in Saugerties, New York. We service the towns of Saugerties and Woodstock. Their mission is to help lost, stray and abandoned animals find their owners and furever families. The town of Saugerties maintains the current building, but pet food, veterinary care, and other operations expenses are entirely covered through donations. A nonprofit, called the Saugerties Animal Welfare Fund(SAWF), was also created to help in fundraising for a planned new shelter building. Part of the plans for the new building includes a community room which will host various types of classes and events. The Saugerties Animal Shelter team is particularly excited about this because of all the possibilities it will provide in giving back to the community. Helping animals is no small task, but the Shelter is happily surrounded by many animal lovers, and for they are truly grateful.
