The team at our Menifee, California location were able to visit the Animal Friends of the Valleys, a local shelter which was selected as the donation shelter for our 2019 Calendar campaign. Animal Friends of the Valleys offers animals for adoptions and provides animal services to the cities of Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, Wildomar, Menifee, Murrieta, and Temecula and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
Animal Friends of the Valleys are such a presence in the community, and have been especially helpful to our in emergencies such as the wildfires that have recently occurred here. They took in hundreds of animals that were displaced due to the fires and worked 24/7 with housing them and helping to return them to their families.
THRIVE employees were taken on a tour around the facility with Beth Soltysiak, the Director of Donor Development. We were so impressed with the conditions there. Each pet had their own comfortable, temperature regulated suites and were well taken care of. Everywhere we looked, there was staff/volunteers cleaning, playing with the animals and helping potential pet parents find their new babies. We knew this donation was going to be well utilized for the care of these animals and were so excited to help this wonderful shelter help even more pets!
We look forward to continuing to support local shelters that are paving the way in providing amazing care to our beloved pets in need.
