News from the shelter

The Eva Burrell Animal Shelter does so much more than offering a haven for homeless dogs and cats in the area. EBAS works with the Thompson Veterinary Clinic to help and encourage pet owners to spay and/or neuter their pets.

The shelter offers winter bedding and pet food for those families struggling with the tough economy.

The management and board strive to educate the public on the benefits being responsible pet ownership and are helpful in aiding families that are having training or behavioral issues with a pet.

EBAS management has been called to car accidents to assist with frightened animals that were in the vehicles and cared for them until the family was able to pick them up. The animal shelter offers safe haven for abandoned or abused animals that have ranged from timid to treacherous, offering nourishment, care, socialization and training.

The staff and volunteers at Eva Burrell Animal Shelter offer a second chance to our county’s homeless cats and dogs. How rewarding it is when good health and confidence are restored, and a safe pet can be offered for adoption by a responsible individual or family with a forever home!
