Paws Doing Better Financially

Rabun Paws 4 Life gives an update on their current status.

At the Rabun County Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday, Shannon Conrad, the CEO of Paws 4 Life, spoke about the group’s finances, as well as their search for a shelter director.

Last time Conrad came before the Rabun County Commission, she asked the commissioners to consider an advance on funds already designated to go towards the shelter and animal control; however, on Tuesday, she said that is no longer necessary.

“As of right now we have anywhere from 4 to 6 months, maybe even longer, operating capitol in the bank, so we should be OK at this point.”

Conrad also said that they are continuing to pursue someone to be the shelter’s new director.

“As you all know, we had to make a change in our director position. We have several really good resumes in right now, we’re not in a hurry to re-hire for the director position but were really happy to see some of the resumes we’ve gotten in.”

Conrad said they have adopted out over 40 animals in the month they have been open, and are currently at about half capacity.
