FALLBROOK — The Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary has secured temporary housing for its animals for the next 60 days at the Clip and Snip Country Kennels in Murrieta.
Volunteers are urgently needed to assist in the daily care and feeding of the animals during this period of relocation, while the Sanctuary staff seeks a permanent facility closer to Fallbrook.
Zoning regulations, which prevented the Sanctuary from establishing a permanent facility in their present location, are very restrictive for “kennel” property.
A group of dedicated volunteers is seeking a suitable property, as well as benefactors who may be interested in providing funding assistance.
The Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary is currently unable to take in new pets, as the available temporary space is at capacity.
The staff will continue to be actively involved in seeking new homes for their many resident animals currently in boarding that deserve loving families through weekly adoptions (see page A-3 for this week’s site).
The Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary is a nonprofit charitable organization that is in urgent need of volunteer animal caregivers, financial assistance and suitable property.
Animal shelters, rescue groups and humane society facilities are being overwhelmed by the enormous influx of pets being released or abandoned by owners due to the worsening economic climate. The need for assistance has never been greater.
