Peaceable Kingdom Looks to Expand Services P

eaceable Kingdom began operat- ing in 1998 through the efforts of volunteers that offered their own homes to shelter and care for home- less/abandoned cats. In 2002, a small building was leased where the cats were kept. In 2004, a larger build- ing was leased to protect homeless or abandoned dogs, as well. A low-cost spay/neuter clinic was added to curb the feral cat population by offering free TNR (trap, neuter, return) services. Becky Krisko and her mother, Mary

Hilbert, owners of the building, listed the property (including the adjacent pizza shop) for sale. While it would

More Factors to Consider When Choosing a Pet

n A yard isn’t a must, but dogs need regular exercise and socialization.

n Adult children boomerang home after college or a divorce, often with pets. A new baby also alters a home’s equilibrium. Many hours away due to work, school activities, elder care and/or volunteering can lead to a bored pet that will produce its own entertainment, often to the family’s dismay.

n Some pets are easily washable, while others need professional grooming. Daily brushing minimizes shedding.

n Family members’ tolerance for pet drool and snoring counts.

n A yearly wellness exam, required inoculations, a microchip and pet insurance add to the tab.

have been simpler and less costly to sell the entire property, Krisko and Hilbert have always been staunch supporters of Peaceable Kingdom and kindly agreed to pay the cost to subdivide the prop- erty and finance most of the purchase price with a balloon mortgage. Peaceable Kingdom is a no-kill

shelter. They do not euthanize animals except in cases of unacceptable aggres- sion or incurable illness. Their mission is to provide care, protection and as- sistance to animals that are mistreated, injured, abandoned or otherwise in need; offer low-cost veterinary services and provide all pet owners a place to get care for their pets; minimize animal overpopulation through low-cost spay/

neuter clinics; and create community awareness and gain support of animal needs through educational efforts. The many services at the veteri- nary clinic include on-site adoptions at the shelter, as well as at local Petsmart Stores. Peaceable Kingdom attends many community events to promote adoptable animals and the shelter. Each year, they spay/neuter more than 2,000 local pets and feral cats and adopt out between 800 and 1,000 homeless dogs, cats and kittens into their forever homes. Peaceable Kingdom wants to continue to expand their facility for cats and dogs, but in order to do this, they must make some structural changes and repairs. People can help by donating to the Building Fund.
