Phil Rogers to Remain at the Helm
In late March, Phil Rogers decided to leave Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter, a decision that the Board of Directors viewed with great sadness. We began a search for a new Executive Director. Recently, we learned that Phil was willing to reconsider his decision to depart, and now we are pleased to announce that he will continue in his leadership role. This decision offers our organization continuity and allows us to build on our strong forward momentum. Working with his team of top staff and volunteer leaders, we’re confident that Phil will continue to set a solid course for an even more exciting future. Much remains to be done on behalf of the lost and abandoned animals of the community.
Pet of the Week: Kimmy
Hi, I'm Kimmy. My black coat is silky smooth and it even has two white hearts on it - one on my neck and one on my belly. In June it will be 1 year since I've been at the shelter. I can think of no better way to celebrate than by joining a fmaily in which I am the only feline upon which to dote upon - I love to be spoiled after all! My friends at the shelter noticed I get stressed out by the presence of other animals so they gave me my own office, though I share it with my human friends. I help them type and keep their laps warm when they're on the phone. One volunteer even brings me liver treats - I love liver treats! I do not like it when dogs walk by, I must protect my office.
Once you bring me home we will have lots to catch up on. I have many stories to tell and my unique meow is endearing. I chirp and twill when I'm happy and content. I'm an indoor lady who's a little nervous around strangers. I am 11 years young and like to play with toys. Might I be a good addition to your quiet home? Come to Heart of the Valley today to meet me, Kimmy! You can also learn more about me by calling 388-9399. Adoption Counselors are available daily between 11:30AM-5:30PM.
