cats and 15 dogs in foster. Most of the fosters will change to adoptions as soon as
the spay/neuter has been accomplished. At the end of January we had 18 cats
and 4 dogs in the Shelter. There were 28 animals either spayed or neutered in
Eileen reported on Fund Raising. Money collected from Troy Banks was $14 and
$15.48 from the Libby Banks. We received $100 from Boutique Brielle.

Discussion of kennel procedures for Covid concluded that KPFL. will continue
with our current procedure for appointments, walk-ins and crew. This subject will
be revisited every 30 days.
The new momma cat/kitten room has progressed as expected. Jeff reported a
PVC cat tower that can easily be cleaned will be built for the new room.
Faith is looking for a volunteer that would be willing to call all the people that
have signed IOU’s when having spay/neuter or other business with the Shelter to
see if they are able to make a payment on money owed.

Faith reported her Mother will be unable to do the tax report for KPFL. She will try
to find someone to do this and report at next meeting.
Jeff and Faith will check on the phone and Internet connection at the Shelter as it
is poor.
Jeff will check on status of Butte cats - a case of hoarding cats has been brought to
the publics attention with the Butte facility handling spay and neuter and looking
for homes.
Pat Richards has taken Sparky, a medically challenged dog that requires insulin. He
has asked for help with medical costs as he only takes medically challenged pets
and expenses run high. Eileen made a motion to help Richards, seconded by
Becky. Voted and passed.
