Grant County Animal Outreach assumed operation of the Moses Lake Animal Shelter July 9, 2007. The GCAO Shelter Team works hard to provide the best possible care for the displaced pets of Grant County while finding as many forever homes as possible. Coordinating with a network of rescues across the state, hundreds of adoptable animals are transported to no-kill rescues when space is limited. Providing temporary shelter for 200-400 cats and dogs per month, there are always opportunities for volunteers to foster a shelter pet or help transport to rescue. GCAO envisions continued improvements to the facility for better health and comfort of the shelter pets while continuing to provide education to the community on the importance of spaying and neutering to lower the number of homeless animals.
