It was a fantastic meeting! There was a FULL HOUSE (which apparently is very uncommon for this type Read Moreof meeting!) and everyone was there with one thing in mind - to save the shelter!! Niki Dawson, the AMAZING new director gave a fabulous half our presentation about all the fantastic changes that have happened since she began, and focused a lot on the community service that the shelter provides to our township. The shelter supports local teens (with and without disabilities) and other children by allowing them to volunteer and encourage their compassion for animals. The shelter also supports the animal owning community with incredible programs to HELP people keep their pets in their homes even when they are having financial or other difficulties. Honestly, in 20 years as a veterinarian, many of which were involved in animal rescue, I have never worked with a shelter as amazing as SRAS or a director with as much enthusiasm, dedication, intelligence and just all around awesomeness as Niki Dawson! After the presentation, the council asked a lot of questions, mostly about how much money the shelter needs/makes/loses etc but Niki had GREAT answers for everything, because she really has turned the place around completely. Then, about 30 people got a chance for their two minutes at the microphone (including me!) and made their case to save the shelter. In my opinion, it was a positive evening and I think the council learned a LOT about the shelter that it didn't know. I left feeling hopeful... Thanks PATCH, for putting this out there! I hope you'll continue to follow this story so that everyone in Bridgewater knows what's happening with our local shelter! It matters to all of us, animal lovers or not, because the shelter helps with stray populations as well as wildlife. We need the shelter HERE IN BRIDGEWATER!!!
