In 2022, more facility enhancements continued with new flooring and kennel improvements. With more efficiency and improvements in the shelter operations, space to install additional critical equipment in a small shelter was accomplished. We use IDEXX lab equipment for all our testing. Our animals all get an enhanced fecal done on intake which includes testing for Giardia, Coccidia, Tapeworms and all other basic parasites. All dogs over 6 months of age receive a 4DX heartworm test. If the test is positive for any disease such as Lyme, heartworm, etc., treatment is started immediately.
In 2023, the vaccine clinics continue monthly for the region (closed December – February). These successful vaccine clinics average almost 100 animals per month for various vaccines, microchips and other services. These clinics involve many volunteers and are a low-cost option for the region.
The Animal Shelter of Sullivan County is a gold-standard managed facility thanks to our staff, board of directors, Sullivan County leadership, community partnerships, volunteers, fosters, rescues and many others. The shelter strives to be the best stewards of taxpayers’ dollars and charitable donations invested into the shelter. The animals and their well-being come first. There will always be more animals in need and the shelter looks forward to being their safeguard for a ‘fur-ever’ home. Thank you for your support!
