Mission Statement

Shelby Shelter is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to humanely reducing cat and dog overpopulation. By educating the public about the need to spay and neuter their pets and strays; providing access information to low-cost spay/neuter services for stray, homeless and abandoned animals; helping members in their efforts to place adoptable pets in loving homes; and advocating non-lethal population control.

Description

"When I first got involved in rescue, it was just to foster an animal on a temporary bases because, like many, I had 2 jobs and just didn’t feel I had time to do anything else. Over the course of a few months I became more aware of how inefficient and unjust the system was with regards to animal care and value for life itself. Having seen hundreds of animals euthanized over the course of a few days, at no fault of thier own, I knew I had to do more. So, I began doing research and making time for what was important, saving lives. Now when people tell me, 'Jessica, you cant save the world’, I just respond, 'No, I cant, but I can make a world of difference to those that I help’. " - Jessica M. Baker, Founder

Support Includes:

1) Finding temporary homes for animals to prevent them from ending up in a pro-euthanasia shelter

2) Rescue animals from pro-euthanasia shelters

3) Rescue strays

4) Provide health care to the sick
