Press-Tribune: Layoffs at Canyon County Animal Shelter

Posted By on Wed, Aug 7, 2013 at 12:47 PM

The board of the Canyon County Animal Shelter in Caldwell was slated to meet this afternoon when it was expected to announce that nearly half of the shelter's staff would be laid off. The Idaho Press-Tribune reports that the Executive Director of the shelter met with the board Aug. 6 to discuss a significant cash flow problem.

In addition to a major reduction in donations, the shelter had also been counting on a $30,000 operation grant that has now been delayed until early 2014.

Shelter officials said they hoped that more volunteers would step up to help keep the shelter operating.

“Until we get into a better cash position, we’re just going to have to lay some people off, utilize our volunteer force as much as possible and get our message out, and hopefully we can get some more help,” Canyon County clerk and the shelter's board chair Chris Yamamoto told the Press-Tribune.
