Support Pet Adoption and Animal Rescue
Amador County Animal Control
& Adoption Center
Amador County’s pet population was growing and the animal control facility was outdated and overcrowded. With the help of Amador Community Foundation, the animal control and adoption center fund-raising effort began, and a new, state-of-the-art, modern Animal Control and Adoption Center was built adjacent to the old facility.
“Amador Community Foundation was an essential partner in the shelter construction,” said Susan Manning, chairperson of the fund raising effort. “They enabled animal loving donors to make contributions expressly for our animal shelter and gave this project the tax deductible status as well.”
Partners came together with the common goal of eliminating the need to euthanize healthy adoptable pets in Amador County. The new shelter has also helped to attract and maintain a more professional animal supportive staff and group of volunteers.
Tri County Wildlife Flight Cage
Tri County Wildlife Care is a local non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of local injured, ill and orphaned wildlife in Amador, Calaveras and San Joaquin Counties. As our population has increased, the need for wildlife care has also escalated. Each year hundreds of orphaned baby songbirds enter the care of Tri County Wildlife. Amador Community Foundation assisted with the funding for a large flight cage. The Feed Barn paid for the foundation and Jackson Creek Veterinarian Clinic and the Amador Community Foundation paid for the cage itself. Each year, hundreds of Songbirds pass through this cage learning to fly, developing their strength, and finding their way to freedom.
