The Green Lake Area Animal Shelter was founded in 1993 under the name Tri-County Animal Shelter and Adoption. We changed our name in 2005 and also expanded our services. We are an open admission shelter accepting primarily dogs and cats.
We routinely partner with other organizations and law enforcement to assist in emergency situations. Our yearly operating budget is roughly $250,000. Every penny is spent toward our mission of caring for homeless cats and dogs. All of our income is in the form of donations, whether it's adoption fees, fundraisers, memorials or donation of supplies.
We employ a small paid staff and have a few dedicated volunteers. A Board of Directors oversees policy and procedure, and the shelter manager supervises all day to day operations.
