Chief Bob Haskell reports that the Animal Care Facility is celebrating its 8th month as a "no-kill" shelter. Actually, by working closely with rescue groups, it's been 8 months for dogs and 11 months for cats. With that the animal gods are smiling on the Chief, the shelter has recently temporarily housed a sheep, three goats and a pair of white ferrets. Two of the goats and the ferrets are still available for adoption. If interested, please call or visit the facility. 746-5500 - Operating hours are Monday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
