A Note From Our Executive Director


Dear friends,


During this difficult and challenging time, I (we) hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. 


Over the past couple of weeks, our staff, volunteers and Board of Directors have come together to ensure that SARL is operational during the new normal caused by COVID-19.  The primary focus is the safety, wellbeing and good health of each other and the animals in our care. 


Because of COVID-19 we have implemented some temporary changes.  In addition to no open hours for adoptions, animal transports are temporarily suspended; volunteer activities on campus are as well.  We have also had to stop the intake of in-person donations such as linens, towels etc. We are still fortunate to be receiving donations by our supporters via Amazon Smile.  These decisions were difficult to make however we know they are in everyone’s best interest.


While it is not ‘business as we knew it’ a few short weeks ago, we are operational and are taking this opportunity to do a deep clean of campus.  We have begun working on Judy’s Kitty City Trailer, a fresh new coat of paint does wonders! Our kitten room will be ready for kitten season for certain. 


As a non-profit organization, we are concerned about how the pandemic is impacting our current and on-going financial health. We are making every effort to minimize operational expenses, while maintaining the health and safety of those in our care. Two major fundraisers were cancelled, and we are unsure if the others we had planned will be rescheduled.  Many of you have generously supported SARL, we are asking for your support to help with today’s needs and for the near future. 


We know that we are not the only organization impacted by COVID-19, but because we believe that what we do is vital for those that don’t have a voice - our animals - we are asking for your support. The best way to help us, if you are able, is to make a gift to our general fund; any amount will help our shelter and the animals we care for. We know there are competing priorities right now, but SARL needs your support.  Our expenses will not stop despite this crisis. 


On behalf of our entire team, be safe, stay home, stay virtually connected and most of all think positively about the future.  


In health,


Jinelle Hobson

Executive Director
