Shelter director, Sarah Tenon, granted the non-profit organization a pardon for the current dogs housed at the facility. The pardon also applies to incoming canines. Dogs will not be euthanized during that interim but Tenon stated she doesn't want people to take a casual approach for the dog’s long-term situation.
"I don't want them to get relaxed with the pardon because the animals will then continue to sit here,” she said. “They've been here, the ones that are remaining on the list, have been here over 30 days."
There are 36 dogs that need home homes. This number will grow by the end of the week. Five of the dog’s faced being euthanized before the pardon was signed.
This is the third pardon for the shelter but the first one signed by the county since they took over in July.
The pardoned dogs are listed on the Paws for Hope and Faith Facebook page with their contact information, making the adoption of one of these great dogs seamless.
