THE STORY:

*UPDATE*

Thanks to a generous donation made directly to the shelter, we have officially met our fundraising goal! Thanks to everyone who donated to help purchase air conditioning for Missoula's shelter pets. Though the fundraising goal has been met and air conditioning will be a reality for these homeless pets, this page will remain active. Any additional donations made will continue to go directly to the Friends of Shelter.  

---------------------------------------------------------------

When the Missoula Animal Control shelter was built, air conditioning was not installed in the animal areas. Now, in the midst of this record hot summer, the kennels and cat rooms are VERY hot. Shelter staff members say a yellow lab at the shelter suffered a heatstroke during June's triple-digit temperatures. Preliminary estimates indicate that installing air conditioning in the kennels and cat rooms will cost about $8,000. All donations go directly to the Friends of the Shelter, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. 

Donate now, and let's get some cold air to these pets while they wait for their forever homes! An enormous thanks goes to Axil Plumbing, Heating & Air. As we work toward our $8,000 goal, they will be matching every dollar we raise with a $.50 in kind donation to install the system free of charge! Let's keep going and cool off the pets at Missoula Animal Control as soon as possible.  Every donation gets us closer to our goal - and thanks to Axil Plumbing, Heating & Air, we can turn $8,000 into $12,000!!
