ICARE (Inyo/Mono County Animal Resources and Education) has partnered with Inyo County to construct a new Animal Shelter and Adoption Center in Big Pine. The existing shelter was constructed as a milk barn in the 1920s and was never intended to house companion animals. Our homeless pets deserve better.
ICARE and Inyo County have raised about $500,000 out of the $800,000 needed to construct the new shelter. In order to start work on the project, ICARE is asking animal lovers near and far to help raise the final $300,000. Although donations in any amount are welcome and needed, donations of at least $500 will be acknowledged on a Donor Recognition Wall in a prominent location at the new Animal Shelter and Adoption Center.
“Paw” recognition levels are as follows:
PLATINUM – $5,000 or more is enough for one dog kennel or two cat kennels.
GOLD – $2,500 is enough for one cat kennel
SILVER – $1,000
BRONZE – $500
Your gifts may be mailed to: ICARE – New Animal Shelter, Box 76, Bishop, CA 93515 or donations may be made via Paypal on-line at www.ICAREforpets.org. Please call ICARE at 760-872-3802 with any questions.
