Filed under: Business,Elwood,Events,Heart of the Community,News |

On Sunday, April 2, 2017 3pm Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center will be celebrating it’s 90th Anniversary. This is a landmark year and exciting event for all of Little Shelter’s staff, volunteers, friends and families. In commemoration of this huge milestone in saving lives, Little Shelter is inviting the public to join them for a celebration. Refreshments will be served to our guest at the celebration.

Not only has Little Shelter maintained its stance to rescue animals in need in its own community, but also has contributed to the cause on a national scale through its Passage to Freedom program. Little Shelter prides itself on being a leader in its community and it should come as no surprise that recently they have raised the bar of rescue even higher. This year the Passage to Freedom program crossed international borders with rescue transports from Baku, Thailand and Korea.

“In the past 90 years Little Shelter has done some amazing things thanks to its supporters.” Commented President Maryann Chernovsky. “I’m very proud to be a part of such an amazing place and we have big plans for the future to expand our reach in rescue and in our community give back programs.”

Little Shelter is a non-profit no-kill animal shelter that relies on the support of the community to continue its mission. Currently Little Shelter helps rescue and re-home over 2000 animals a year and is looking to increase that number in the coming years. Come celebrate Little Shelter’s 90th anniversary this Sunday and if you have never been to the shelter, this is a great opportunity to learn about Little Shelter’s history while taking a tour of the facility.
