Waynesboro’s next steps to save Shenandoah’s local animal shelter

LYNDHURST — Shenandoah Valley Animal Solutions Heart continues to buckle underneath the worry of countless animals and limited staff. In the most current and alternative effort to conserve the shelter, citizens want to make certain it really is done proper. 

Waynesboro issued a Request For Proposals on Oct. 19 to begin the method of scoping out a contractor that would assume accountability of the shelter, such as: 

  • Tracking all animal ingestion
  • billings
  • yearly point out inspections
  • report preparing
  • recruiting and training workers
  • utilizing volunteer companies courses
  • neighborhood instruction plans
  • fundraising
  • facility management
  • catastrophe preparedness

The conclusion to bid out the shelter comes soon after several years of staffing difficulties and difficulties with high volumes of animals, problems that previous Director Hannah Richardson spoke candidly about when she was working with the shelter about the summer time.
