Yelm Animal Alliance President Elizabeth Felix tells the Yelm Community Blog:
“Like me, you love dogs.
I am a volunteer in the Yelm Animal Alliance.
We have rescued dogs in our community since 2008.
Our big fund raiser is our yearly raffle.
I invite you to buy a ticket at $1 each or donate a prize for a lucky winner and supporter of our work.”
Please read our Mission Statement:
“The Yelm Animal Alliance is a small, all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the rescuing and re-homing of lost, homeless, discarded, often abused and injured dogs in our community.
We do not operate a shelter and depend entirely upon our amazing foster families who are willing to take a strange and frightened dog into their home where it is loved and nurtured until it is adopted into it’s forever home. We provide all food, supplies, equipment and necessary medical treatment, at no cost to the foster famiIy for the dog under their care.
We work closely with Yelm Animal Control, Yelm Veterinary Hospital, and local businesses to first rehabilitate and then re-home these wonderful dogs entrusted to our care, giving them a second chance at life.
The majority of our dogs come from Yelm Animal Control and we only take in “owner surrender” dogs under very certain circumstances. All of our dogs are given a thorough veterinary health examination. In addition they are micro-chipped and brought up to date on their vaccinations, including rabies.
Prior to their adoption they are spayed or neutered. We have a very thorough individualized screening process in selecting our adopters to ensure they are making an informed and compassionate decision in choosing the right dog for their family and that they understand they are making a commitment to that dog for the rest of its life.”

Mrs. Felix and her team deserve this community’s support.
Elizabeth was with Ms. Brewer from the start in 2008 in addressing the issue of Yelm’s then-very poor policies regarding rescued animals. She never wavered from the abysmal response of Mayor Harding and the Yelm City Council in May 2008, to achieve the acknowledgments to the Yelm Animal Alliance service to our community of today!
