Last week, we posted about Room For One More, an animal shelter in Sparta, New Jersey. They had to vacate their building and find homes for over 100 dogs and cats by June 30 because the city was taking over their building. Here is an update on their status and all of the animals at the shelter:
Great news!! We just signed our rental lease with a new facility and will be moving in June 30th. The animals are safe!
The place is beautiful and the landlord actually makes repairs on the building and is making sure that all the runs are safe for the dogs. This means we won’t have any more injured dogs due to promises of repairs that are not made. He is also doing fencing in the front area, so the dogs have a place to run around and place catch!
More updates after the jump.
Press release from Room For One More:
We would like to thank all of the people in the local community, the fellow rescue groups that have stepped up to help (Noah’s Ark, Pet Adoption League), all of the people that have donated to help the animals, Highlands Veterinary hospital, our volunteers and staff for all the help and support these past few weeks as we make ready to leave the Aparta location.
Also, to the volunteers of Camden County Animal Shelter who have been keeping the word going around, and offering so much support.
Our Transport drivers who drive the “death row dogs” that come to us for a second chance, the dogs that the township of Sparta doesn’t want us to help. The co-ordinators that help arrange the transports and who get the dogs on the Freedom Train.
All of the donations and support from up and down the east coast from those that care about what happens to this rescue and these animals.
And again especially the local community that have been showing their support and concern. These are your animals, your pets, both present and future.
