To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to you from the Regional Animal Shelter in King William, VA. We are a rural shelter that services 2 counties, King William and King & Queen. We only have 20 dog kennels and these 2 counties are 2 of the longest counties in Virginia. We usually get a wide variety of dogs and cats here at our shelter. A little over half of our dogs are Beagles or Hounds that have likely been dumped after hunting seasons. Unfortunately when space runs out, we do have to euthanize. We try everything we can so that animals will not have to be put down, including pairing up dogs in the kennels, advertising on Petfinder.com, etc. We have been extremely successful in the past few months, with having a record of animals leaving successfully in January! We have only been open about 3 ½ years.
I am always looking for new rescue groups to register with us, whether to cross-post for us or actively participate in transferring dogs from our shelter. We currently have over 40 groups registered with us, some of those being breed-specific. Would your group be interested in registering with us for future reference, or possibly accepting animals at this time? Please feel free to take a look at our website http://www.kingwilliamcounty.us/animal_shelter.html for further information.
Thanks for your time!
