It was open house at the new Animal Save Offices and Thrift Store last weekend.
That’s Animal Save Executive Director Carolyn Niehaus who says they also have a separate Book Nook room for people who enjoy reading and videos . The new location at 520 East Main Street used to be something else.
While the cats are kept on sight, the dogs are kept in foster homes until someone shows an interest in adoption and they are screened to make sure the right animal goes to the right home. Niehous says like all the great animal welfare groups in the county, Animal Save works to reduce the number of homeless animals in our community. She says that shows because the euthanasia rate of animals in Nevada County has dropped significanly in the last few years. She says Animal Save operates several programs to assist pet owners and homeless animals in the community including a Spay Neuter Program, Foster Program, Animal Food Assistance Program, Adoption Program, Feral Cat Program, Humane Education Program, and a Volunteers Program.
