The Green Lake Area Animal Shelter is an organization that seeks to provide aid and shelter for all companion animals in need. No animal will be turned away due to age, health, behavior, lack of space, or the ability of the surrendering owner to pay a fee.
This is also an organization that seeks to place as many animals as possible in loving homes. Because of this, every effort will be made to schedule incoming animals so that euthanasia need not be performed to make space for new arrivals. Staff will work with other shelters, breed rescue groups, available foster homes, or the pets owner may be asked to wait to bring the animal to the shelter. If no other arrangements can be made and/or the animal is in immediate need of shelter, the Green Lake Area Animal Shelter will abide by its open door policy, and the animal will be accepted.
This policy became effective April 1, 2005 and was reviewed March 3, 2014.
