Prior to late 2015, Mary S. Roberts would average a handful of pet pickups per month. But under the direction of new Executive Director Carrie Ridgway, Mary S. Roberts now saves about 75 animals per month from the Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter in Jurupa Valley. The 1,000-pet plateau happened earlier this month (June 2017). But that number is now at 1,044 and counting.
“This partnership is a great one for the community,” Miller said. “Of course, our former, four-legged residents are the true winners, thanks to Mary S. Roberts.”
Director Carrie Ridgway of the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center takes the role of saving lives seriously and spearheaded the partnership between the nonprofit organization and the county shelter.
“It’s amazing to see what two agencies can do when they work together – putting animals first,” Ridgway said. “Riverside County Department of Animal Services has welcomed us. We are excited to see what is on the horizon for homeless pets in our community.”
