SAVE THE DATE!
We'd like to invite our volunteers, friends, and community members to attend our General Membership Meeting on January 26, 2014 at 1pm at the Community Center in La Crescent (pending availability).
At this meeting, we will hold our election for three Board of Directors as Heather Hulett, Deb Korus, and Kathy Mertes are all at the end of their 2 year terms. Please think about running as a board member or serving as an officer for this wonderful charitable organization! We are accepting nominations (including self - nominations) through December 31, 2013 by emailing: email@example.com
If you are interested in running please send a candidate's statement telling a little about yourself and your interest in the shelter to the address above by January 12. Directors are expected to help fundraise, serve on a committee, attend monthly meetings, and support the mission of the shelter in the community.
Voting members are any volunteers (aged 18 or older) who have worked at least 100 hours in the 2013 calendar year or any friend who has donated at least $1000 (per person).
Absentee ballots will be available upon request and must be received at the shelter by January 24th.
Please plan on joining us to share your ideas for the future of the shelter and to have some fun with all of the volunteers and animal lovers involved with LAR.
La Crescent Animal Rescue is open
noon to 5pm on Wednesdays,
11:00-2:00 on Fridays,
11am to 2pm on Sundays.
We are also happy to make an appointment if you would like to see any of our animals. If you're interested in an animal that is in foster care, we will make arrangements with the foster parent for you to see the animal and start the adoption process.
HERE ARE SOME WONDERFUL WAYS TO HELP LAR !!
How can you help? Your involvement and support is requested, needed, and appreciated! If you are 16 or older and can help out, please fill out a volunteer application. Our volunteers run the shelter. We need you to help clean and care for the animals, to help fundraise, to help spread the word about adopting, fostering, and the importance of spaying and neutering all pets.
- Donate! As
you know, we are all volunteer and supported only by donations. Our
average vet bill is over $1500 a month, so we truly appreciate and need
your help caring for our animals.
Many companies provide matching funds. This is a wonderful way to double your contribution to LAR. Please ask your employer if they would contribute!
a Kwik Trip Gift card from LAR. We sell $25 and $100 (fuel only) gift
cards for face value. Helping us doesn't cost you anything!
