HARK grateful for Chamber grant


February 10, 2011

On behalf of the Haines Animal Rescue Kennel Board, staff and furry friends, I would like to extend a huge thank you to the Haines Chamber of Commerce board of directors. We received a grant to financially offset the cost associated with training a euthanasia technician. This training was completed in December 2010 by our current animal control officer. We were recently called upon by a fellow community member to assist in their animals’ big walk over the rainbow bridge, and were acutely reminded how important this service is. All those that have used this service and perform this service are grateful for the continued opportunity to offer this here in Haines. Many people rallied with support to help get our new staff trained. Our humble thanks to all of you!  Our appreciation for this grant award is limitless, and there are no words that can properly express our gratitude.
