A Time To Live Programs
Social Media - A Time To Live volunteers launched a Facebook page for the Clark County Animal Shelter in 2011, with 1900+ followers that page was turned over to the shelter staff per their request and in now managed by the shelter employees. A Time To Live also manages their own Facebook page where volunteers post adoptable shelter animals, promote adoption events and raise awareness for needs of the shelter animals.
Newsletter - “The Paw Print” is a quarterly newsletter published by A Time To Live volunteers to share new about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities and pet information, as well as, stories of how A Time To Live is working to save Clark County Shelter animals.
Adoption Programs - A Time To Live volunteers showcase Clark County Shelter animals by participating in off site adoption events. For these events A Time To Live volunteers (with permission from the shelter staff) take animals from the shelter to locations within the community for the day. These events include but are not limited to Tractor Supply Adoption Days, Pioneer Festival and Beer Cheese Festival. Volunteers show the animals with hopes of finding them forever homes or temporary foster homes to get them out of the shelter.

Medical Treatment - A Time To Live provides funding for extra medical treatment of shelter animals. Adoption fees cover the cost of basic medical including spay/neuter, routine vaccines, heartworm/ combo test and fecal test. Extra medical costs can range from a few dollars to several hundred dollars per animal depending on what that animal needs. Examples of extra medical need would include but are not limited to deworming, flea treatments, antibiotics, heartworm treatments, parvovirus treatment, broken bones, and other treatable illness or injury. This requires the greatest amount of our budget.
Spay and Neuter Program - We, as a community, must reduce the intake at the Clark County Animal Shelter in order to save lives. A Time To Live offers low cost spay and neuter vouchers to residents of Clark County based on the availability of grant funding. If you are interested in knowing more about this program please email us for details and availability.
