In one year alone, Maddie's Fund awarded $11.4 million through 156 grants in 42 states and the District of Columbia. All around us, cities like Seattle, areas like North Kitsap, and other islands like Bainbridge Island have joined forces to get these funds by adopting the Asilomar Accords. Island County is lagging behind because no one here has adopted the Asilomar Accords, which is a nationally recognized and respected system of data collection that helps our nation find out what is really going on in terms of how many animals are being adopted from shelters, how many are being killed, and how we as a nation can do better. The funds are awarded to help build community collaborations where shelters and animal welfare organizations join together to develop effective models of lifesaving. Veterinary colleges can get involved, and all the community's resources are allowed to be part of solutions.

Every animal needs a champion. You can be champions for every homeless dog and cat in this region just by asking your next contractor to use the Asilomar Accords. Let citizens do the rest by bringing the talent, the commitment, and the funding here to make this a great place for animals and people to live together. Thank you.

      Island County Goverments can do better for our Animals and help much more in supporting the public. A public that all ready does help and wants to help more by having an improved Animal enviroment. I am ashamed that officials have accepted and allowed its self and contracters too do such a poor job. This is leaving the publics and the goverments hands tied in recieving grant money for a better result for all of our Animals. That the public has to beg for honest change in our sheltering system is wrong. Our enviromental laws and codes are also not followed that effects the land and our wildlife.

      Honesty and Ethics needs to be shown by those in leadership positions, rather these positions are Goverment, Private or Public!

      every lost and lonely animal - human or otherwise - deserves the care and concern and the most help we can give them
