LUCKY’S PLACE: Our shelter is at the entrance to the Thayne Landfill on Strawberry Creek Rd. We are still in need of monies for the operation of the shelter, to purchase food, litter and other supplies and to pay down or off our Bank of Star Valley construction loan that now has a balance of just under $135,000. We are doing everything we can to stir up donations. Any ideas or suggestions on ways to raise monies are sincerely appreciated. Call 307-883-PETS or respond to email@example.com or communicate with any AHA Board Director (look under Contact on our home page).
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Lucky’s Place is not a County owned or operated shelter. The shelter has been built by all donated funds and run by all volunteers. If you would like to be part of the AHA Team and have time to volunteer to help do cleaning, feeding, grooming, walking the dogs, socializing the animals, etc. Leave a message at (307) 883-PETS, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the shelter on a Saturday 10AM to 4 PM if you would like to help out. We and the animals would sincerely appreciate it!
OTHER WAYS TO HELP: You can buy an “IRA” (Immediate Relief for the Animals) for $2,000 to $ 5,000 or more and will receive a plaque for the donation in the lobby. E-mail Ron Ahrens email@example.com or call 883-4114 for info.
You can donate other amounts to:
Buy a stainless steel dog cage $1,000.
Buy a stainless steel cat cage $ 500.
These larger donations will also receive plaques commerating a pet/person or event
We will also be selling ceramic tiles for a memory wall (like the National Wildlife Museum in Jackson has) engraved for the memory of a beloved pet for $100 each.
Donations in any amount will be gratefully accepted. The needs of the animals are great. You can make a difference!
It has taken us well over 4 years to see this shelter become a reality. Up until the time the shelter was opened we have placed over 1000 homeless pets out of our foster home network with caregivers fostering as many as 15-30 pets in their own homes. We presently are adopting out approximately 300 dogs & cats every year. The shelter named Lucky’s Place will give immediate relief of that strain and allow us to assist more abused & unwanted pets find “forever” homes. It is a “no kill” shelter so we will still need some foster homes for what we call our “hospice pets” so they can be taken care of if we can not find them a home of their own. Lucky’s Place is named after a beloved pet and it honors our first benefactor who helped get this all started.
