Animal Shelter Friends Organize
Aug. 6, 2004
The Friends of the Collinsville
Animal Shelter held a meeting July 27th, 2004 and elected the following officers:
Mrs. Marlene Spicer -
Mr. Matt Babbit - V.P.
Mrs. Donna Alcorn - Treasurer
Mrs. Marie Johnson - Sec.
The group has already
had some fund raiser activities, as well as pursuing grants. That process
has already yielded a check for $2500 recently from a group in California.
Check the cvilleok.com
monthly events calendar for future meetings as they are announced.
|According to City
Manager Mike Tinker, a local builder/developer has discussed donating
/ designing / building a new larger animal shelter. Mike indicated that
process was just in early talking phase now. The location of the potential
new facility has not yet been determined. Police Chief Charlie Annis showed
some preliminary plans at the Friends of the Shelter meeting on July 27th.
A portion of those plans are shown below.

For more information
about the shelter and current animals, link to the Collinsville
Animal Shelter page on petfinder.com. Officer Bryan Barnett
indicated that guidelines require them to hold captured animals for
three days, but he typically hold them for five and he lists them on
the website above. You
can also go directly to petfinder.com
and enter zip code and animal type for a list of animals for adoption
(or return to owner). Officer Barnett said he hoped to have a booth
set up during Founder's Day to provide more information to the public.
Animal Control Officer Bryan Barnett, is shown inside the cramped quarters of
the old cinder block structure at the city storage yard near 5th and Broadway.
animal cages extend beyond the back of the existing animal shelter to give the
larger animals more room and fresh air.
Police Chief Charlie Annis greets a trio of kittens at the shelter Friday August
6th. The Chief indicated the city does the best they can with the existing facility,
but would sure welcome an improved facility. He gave Vera and Sperry as examples
of communities that did not have shelters and occasionally call on Collinsville
to help out with their animal storage.
