– Editor’s note:
The Yelm Community Blog has covered news of the Yelm Animal Alliance since May 2008 when they presented former Mayor Harding and the Yelm City Council a proposal to provide proper care and fostering of lost and/or abandoned pets. Harding said at the time the city would prefer to give all of the animals to a licensed shelter after the city’s hold period, which would put these animals in danger of being euthanized.
With the 2008 economic downturn bringing a tremendous increase of abandoned dogs in Yelm in subsequent years, the City of Yelm finally entered into a Service Provider Agreement on February 28, 2012 with the Yelm Animal Alliance (YAA), after their years of patiently educating the mayor and city council about dog fostering and adoption services. They have been such an asset in saving animals in the city and to find their owners or foster them to happy homes. The Yelm Community Blog appreciates the all of the fine work of the Yelm Animal Alliance as their contract comes to an end, and wishes Dancing Dog Farm and Rescue well in their endeavors here.
