Jennifer Jungwirth, Vice President
A Look Back and A Leap Forward
Our Morongo Basin Humane Society newsletter is one that tells of a new and and exciting future for our shelter, but I would like to step back for a moment to share some experiences of the last year.
Like all businesses and nonprofits we were strained for resources. The shelter has been closed more often than it was open for over a year. Angel, our shelter manager, kept the shelter going by herself from June to October due to a severe staffing shortage. Somehow, through it all, our supporters have been wonderful, sending food, toys, and money.
Our vice president Jennifer Jungwirth started weekly community dog walks and cat cuddles that were so beneficial to keeping our pets engaged. It has been a rough year or so but I am hoping the worst is behind us.
Now my thoughts turn to ones of gratitude for our committed staff and volunteer board of directors and community. We have big plans for the future and I am confident that this community will be behind us all the way. ~November 30, 2021
