I love animals. Don’t we all? That’s why I’m in the field of animal sheltering. That’s why you’re reading this magazine. It’s our passion for animals that brings us together.

In 1997, a nonprofit shelter with an annual intake of approximately 12,500 domestic animals and a contract to provide animal control for a county of approximately 700,000 people took on a large-scale hoarding case. Approximately 240 goats were confiscated and held long-term, at the shelter and in several leased rural locations in the county.
