Opinion: Keep momentum going to save Tahoe Vista animal shelter

We want to thank everyone in the community supporting the Save Our Shelter efforts. We are working hard to raise $100,000 by July 21 so we can demonstrate to the Placer County Board of Supervisors that this community wants to retain the shelter in Tahoe Vista — which is still open but slated to close and services to move to Truckee.

As friends of the shelter, we have partnered with Wylie Animal Rescue Foundation.

Further, the community outpouring of support has been tremendous. We would like to thank Lanza’s for kicking off our first fundraiser in Kings Beach with a fabulous afternoon in March.

In April, Hot Diggity Dog and Cat sponsored a successful event that featured dog baths by Sierra Mobile Pet Spa and raised more than $10,000 for our efforts.

Other businesses have offered to support us with activities, including Steamers, which is hosting our next event on April 25.

We love this community for its giving and support for the care of animals. Let’s keep this momentum growing so we can build the shelter and services we need; visit tahoevistaanimalshelter.com to find out more about our efforts to save the shelter and to help us out by volunteering or donating.
