Noah’s Ark appreciative

Noah’s Ark sends our appreciation to the businesses and individuals who helped keep the Ark floating last year. Thanks to; Audrey Allmon, Belt Salvage, Marion Berry, Cortez Adobe Animal Hospital, Dolores State Bank, Randy Funk, Marvin Graves/ Country Gas, Beth Griffitts, Rick Baer DVM - Mountain Mobile Vet- Durango, Ann Miller, Notah Dineh, Tom Overington, The Pet Pad, Karen Ramos, Kathy Roatcap, St Francis Hotel, For Pets Boarding Kennel, Patty Thomas, Debie Schmitt and Wal Mart.

A special thanks to Jennifer and Ken Caveney for all the hard work and always being there for me, to Carol Hartley who came from Hawaii, to groom all our residents, to Jerry Berg for the much appreciated help with fencing, and to Montezuma Vet Clinic, for the great care and donations. Their thoughtful Angel Tree Program at Christmas is a generous gift to the community. We thank everyone for their gifts.

Closing the pet crematory last year hurt financially, we are thankful for the monetary donations, aluminum cans and Purina dog and cat food weight circles. 2013 not only tugged at our purse strings but at our heartstrings as well. We sadly said good-bye to some wonderful friends and supporters. We will truly miss the generosity and dedication of Dr. Shane Cote who donated countless hours of care and kindness to our orphans. Catherine (Cat) Powers and Esther Sisson whose love of animals was reflected in their dependable help and commitment also leaves a void. Therefore our last thank you goes to God for having graced us with these special souls in our lives.
