Ketchikan Dog Park



Posted on October 3, 2013 at 5:14 PM
Everyone involved in the Ketchikan Humane Society wants to thank all the incredibly generous people who made our third annual autumn auction such a success. So many people offered to help and to donate desserts, artwork, jewelry, gift certificates, wine, antiques, crafts, baskets, toys, tools, appliances, and gadgets galore. Ketchikan is a small place and the merchants here are constantly being asked for donations for one thing or another. They sometimes have to dig pretty deep to help, and they rarely say no. It's good to think about that when we are asking for "just one little thing" from a business which has probably been asked for something by other people at least ten times that month already. Those business owners are our neighbors and friends; they want to help, and one way we can thank them is by patronizing their establishments.
We are so humbled and so thankful for all the businesspeople and individuals in Southern Southeast Alaska who care so much about helping abandoned and abused animals, and about reducing our unwanted pet population. We made enough money to carry on our low-cost spay/neuter program and our free feral cat altering program for another year, plus enough to provide veterinary care for our rescues. Since January we have taken in at least 113 rescues; I don't have the numbers in front of me as I'm typing this, but that's close. If it were not for the compassion of our foster families and the generosity of all the many people who donated, baked, attended, and bid, we could not do what we do, and what would have become of those 113 animals?
On the very morning we were setting up for the event, a lady called to surrender a mama dog and two female puppies who were in danger of being shot because they were unwanted. We didn't have a foster home available, but Gretchen Moore of Groomingdales Pet Resort, who moonlights in her tiny amount of spare time as the Ketchikan Humane Society president, offered to donate some of her kennel space at her boarding kennel to the trio. The puppies were still nursing. All three of them settled in, cozy and safe. They will be available for adoption when they have been spayed. Watch this site for photos, and thank you so much again.
