We were pleased to read Kim Hyatt's Nov. 2 story recognizing Homeward Animal Shelter for its record-breaking number of animal adoptions in October.

As volunteers and a foster home for Homeward Animal Shelter, we have witnessed firsthand how this wonderful organization brings together rescue animals and loving homes. The shelter staff and volunteers take in homeless animals 365 days a year, providing them with food, shelter, medical care and foster homes.

We want to recognize and express our sincere appreciation for the ongoing commitment and endless hours that the shelter staff, volunteers, and board of directors put into the annual rescue effort. They truly make animals their priority. The first full week of November is recognized as National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. There are approximately 3,500 animal shelters caring for roughly between 6 and 8 million animals in the United States. This is a perfect time to reach out and support the efforts of all of our local animal rescues and show our appreciation to each of them in their role as pet guardians.
