New Year, New Home: Salem Animal Rescue League Adoption Event
submitted by Salem Animal Rescue League The Salem Animal Rescue League (SARL) announces its New
Year, New Home adoption event. The event will last 45 days and includes reduced adoption fees (20-50% off depending on animal selected, age and size), two promotional benefit days sponsored by Gold & Diamonds in Windham, and “Salem Resident Days”, which offers additional incentives for Salem residents who adopt a pet any Friday during the promotion. “Although we feel the value of the animals in our care is priceless, we also realize that the need for shelter space at this time is great,” says Schenley Klauer, Communications Manager at Salem Animal Rescue League. “We hope that this event will promote awareness in the community about the work that we do, and also find permanent placement for some amazing animals that will allow us to save others from possible euthanasia.” From December 7 through January 31, 2012, promotional adoption pricing for all available animals will be in effect. On Saturday, December 17, Julie Weymouth from Gold & Diamonds in Windham will be at Salem Animal Rescue League, located at 4 SARL Drive (344 South Broadway for GPS navigation) in Salem from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. During this time, visitors can exchange scrap or unwanted gold for cash, with 10 percent of the
proceeds going to benefit the animals of Salem Animal Rescue League. Gold & Diamonds will return on Saturday, January 14, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for another opportunity. In addition, “Salem Resident Days” will be held each Friday during adoption hours (12 to 4 p.m.) and Salem residents who adopt an animal will receive additional gifts.

He and his team attended three forums of the program in July, October and November) in Boston, MA, and graduated from the program on December 1. Located at 3 Geremonty Drive, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Salem has served the youth of Salem for over 45 years. The Club provides programs for more than 2,000 boys and girls in the areas of education, values and fitness. As a result of their commitment to attending ALP, Michael Goodwin and Boys & Girls Club of Salem strengthened their ability to develop strong leadership, engage with the community and have a greater impact on an increased number of local youth in BGCA’s key outcome areas: Character and Citizenship, Healthy Lifestyles and Academic Success. The strength of an organization – and its ability to positively increase its impact on youth and communities – begins with leadership. At Boys & Girls Clubs,
people make the difference. Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Advanced Leadership Program is a strategic approach to strengthening the leadership skills of community leaders who run Boys & Girls Clubs. Surveys administered six months after graduation, as well as input from focus groups, indicate exciting results in four key areas: increased leadership capacity and team effectiveness; increased impact on youth and community; creation of diverse revenue streams; building stronger boards. Strong local leadership is vital to Boys & Girls Clubs’ continued success in serving local youth and the strength of Club leadership has an indisputable effect on both the number of youth reached and the depth of impact that can be achieved. For more information about the Boys & Girls Club of Salem, contact Michael Goodwin at 898-7709.
