News from the Mission Valley Animal Shelter

POLSON – The Mission Valley Animal Shelter is thanking the community for its support for 25 years. The celebration will be held on Sunday, Aug. 24, from 1-3 p.m. at Riverside Park in Polson.

“The Board of the Mission Valley Animal Shelter wants to take this opportunity to thank this community for its unwavering support of our efforts,” Shelter Vice President Sharon Hawke said. “During this time, we have seen many nonprofit organizations come and go and without the support we have had, we would not be marking this milestone — it’s a lot of years of helping so many wonderful dogs and cats find a new start in life.” 

The animal shelter is privately-funded, receives no governmental funding, and relies solely on donations from individuals and businesses in the area to supplement its revenues from operations. In addition to adoptions, the animal shelter returns lost pets to their homes, provides substantial spay/neuter assistance to the community, and conducts humane education programs to emphasize responsible pet ownership. To help fund these operations, the organization operates Seconds 2 Go Thrift Store in Polson.

“Our thrift store has also received tremendous support from this community in terms of donations as well as purchases of high quality goods. It is with much pride that we are also celebrating the 10th anniversary of the thrift store,” Hawke said.

Refreshments will be served, featuring ice cream and popcorn. Karaoke by Markie Mark will highlight the event. Activities for children and adults will be available as well as some dog training tips and advice — such as “what is your dog trying to tell you.” 

People are encouraged to bring their four-legged friends for a fun-filled afternoon. 

Anderson Radio Broadcasting and Total Screen Design are sponsors of the event.
