The Bloomington Animal shelter is asking for the community’s
help in getting an unusual number of animals at the shelter for this time of year
“The Bloomington Animal Shelter has
experienced a higher volume of animals in recent weeks. Typically this
time of year our dog kennels are nearly empty and right now, dog kennels
are full with over 70 dogs in our care,” said Emily Herr, who is the City of
Bloomington Animal Care and Control’s Outreach and Behavior Coordinator.
The Bloomingtonian teamed up with the shelter this week to
photograph a few of the dogs currently at the shelter, and Herr provided a
description of each dog.
“Our dedicated staff and volunteers are working hard day in and day out to provide the best care for our large population of dogs, cats, rabbits and more. With so many wonderful animals at our facility we are sure there is someone for everyone! If adopting a companion animal isn’t in your immediate plans, there are plenty of other ways to help. One of our highest priorities as an organization is keeping our animals socially, mentally and medically sound by providing our animals with enrichment tools, outings and a comfortable place to rest in their kennels. To accomplish this we rely on donations from our wonderful community. Different toys, treats, canned food and bedding is a great way to assist and support the animals in our care as we work towards their adoptions,” said Herr.
The shelter is located at:
3410 S Walnut St Bloomington, Indiana 47401
