Delta Animal Shelter at full capacity

ESCANABA — The Delta Animal Shelter is at full capacity and is in need of support from the U.P. communities.

The Delta Animal Shelter is in search of anyone who is willing to adopt a couple of furry friends. The shelter is a beacon of hope for all animals that have not found their forever home.

The staff is always working hard to help rehabilitate and relocate animals to new families all over the U.P. But they have been very busy this year and now they are at full capacity and in search of families to adopt.

“We adopt a lot of animals, last week we adopted 32 but then we took in 32 as well,” said Executive Director of the Delta Animal, Susan Gartland. “So we are kind of at a wash and this time of the year is always a busy time of the year for us. Especially with it being kitten season, but one great thing about adopting from a shelter is all animals are spayed, neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated and more.”

The animal shelter is currently taking care of 182 animals at the shelter and through foster care. So if you are unable to adopt you can volunteer or donate supplies to help the shelter meet its requirements to help all of these furry little guys.

But if you are looking to add to your family then the shelter will be excited for you to come to their facility.

“Absolutely every household should have an animal, a pet, and these are some of our cutest here,” added Gartland. “Two little kittens that are going up for adoption and they are looking for a great home to grow up in.”
