The recent hot spell has driven us all inside. Instead of relaxing with a cool drink, we here at the TARPS website are brainstorming ideas to improve our site. We think we have come up with some very nice additions this time. We hope you agree.
Serving our Community
If you look at the top navigation bar about you will note things have changed a bit. We’ve tucked TARPS Tails, our Shelter Manager’s news column, under the ABOUT drop down.
The OUR CATS link is now under the ADOPT drop down. Now people interested in adoption can find it easier and view our animal listings quicker.
There is a new page added to the Navigation bar, OUR SERVICES. This page has links to all kinds of important information and descriptions of the assistance we offer to our local and area community.
Some of the new pages that are accessible from the OUR SERVICES page are highlighted below.
Special Needs Animal Adoption
Many animals come to us with particular treatable issues. These animals are adoptable, but it is a special adopter who can take one of these pets home.
The Special Needs Adoption page explains what is considered a special need and what happens if you choose to adopt one of these unique pets.
Sometimes it is unavoidable and generally it is never easy. TARPS has many surrendered animals in its shelter.
The Animal Surrender page may supply you with information you can use before you give up your beloved pet. Perhaps there is another alternative.
If you’ve exhausted all avenues, this page will also inform you about our surrender process.
Lost your pet? or Spotted a Stray?
Losing a pet is a difficult experience in any pet owner’s life. We’ve added a page for lost pet owners to supply us with their lost animal’s info so we can post it on this site.
The link can be accessed from the Lost and Found box in the right sidebar on many pages, the Our Services dropdown menu or the Our Services page.
If you’ve seen an animal wandering, which looks lost, abandoned or injured. Please call your town’s Animal Control Office or Police Department. If you are having difficulty getting a response, you can now fill out the form on this page to report the sighting to TARPS.
Please note: we will not accept a report without a name and a working contact phone number.
Thanks for taking a look at the updates to our site. We are working hard to keep it up-to-date and give you as much information about our organization.
We hope that whether you are a donor, member, new or old or potential adopter or donor, you can find the information you are looking for.
If not, please feel free to contact us.
