1st Avenue Shelter Transfers to Greenhill Humane Society
Several times a month, some animals are transferred from the shelter to Greenhill Humane Society. This is done for several reasons including getting animals more exposure to potential adoptive families, and ensuring there is always some kennel space available for incoming animals at the shelter.
