The Green Lake Area Animal Shelter was founded in 1993 under the name Tri-County Animal Shelter and Adoption. We changed our name in 2005 and also expanded our services. We are an open admission shelter accepting primarily dogs and cats. We offer a low cost spay and neuter program, in addition to many other services. Our primary focus is adoption.
As of summer 2013, the shelter has rescued over 12,000 cats and dogs and dozens of other companion animal species. We routinely partner with other organizations and law enforcement to assist in emergency situations. Our yearly operating budget is roughly $220,000. Every penny is spent toward our mission of caring for homeless cats and dogs. All of our income is in the form of donations, whether it's adoption fees, fundraisers, memorials or donation of supplies.
We employ a small paid staff and have a few dedicated volunteer. A Board of Directors oversees policy and procedure, and the shelter manager supervises all day to day operations.
With customer service as a primary focus, the Green Lake Area Animal Shelter seeks to enhance the lives of animals and people through education, adoption and compassion.
The vision of the Green Lake Area Animal Shelter is a community in which all pets are considered part of the family, are provided with compassionate care, companionship, training, and are spayed or neutered. We also seek to become the Green Lake area's primary facility for pet adoption, and to be considered a reliable, credible resource to address any animal issue.
