Snake River Animal Shelter 
When we began fundraising for our shelter facilities there were 100 domestic animals euthanized or destroyed each week in the Upper Snake River Valley.  This is a large number for our population.  Our efforts have brought attention to this and volunteers are working hard to bring that number down.  However, the Upper Snake River Valley consists of many rural cities and our volunteers are fostering animals in their sheds, their garages, and their basements.  These volunteer groups need a home base shelter large enough to house and help these adoptable animals find their furever home.

Unlike other animal shelter facilities, the Snake River Animal Shelter (SRAS) will provide a longer opportunity for animals to be adopted, thus avoiding the need for euthanasia.  This unique place will not only offer adoption services, but grooming services, a pet store, and a place for the animals to socialize with each other.  A walking path around 16 acres of scenic property for the community to enjoy will be provided and eventually connected to the Idaho Falls Greenbelt.  Education will be a large part of the existence of this facility.  Teens will be invited to participate in the care and feeding of the shelter animals.  Senior citizens will be the guests of the shelter as well, participating in programs that include the animals.  This is the future of the Snake River Animal Shelter.

The Buster Foundation -  The atrocities that have befallen our beloved breed have only made our commitment to supporting any and all efforts in the areas of pit bull education and rescue even more urgent of a mission.   What we as a society of "civilized" human beings have done - and continue to tolerate - where our animals are concerned only confirms our belief that changes must come about now, not later.  Tolerance, apathy and avoidance of cruelty won't make it go away - it's here, right in our own backyards.  Those who do not step up and report abuse are as guilty of the crime as those who commit the abuse.  We all need to bring personal responsibility back into our society.

We have become so desensitized to animal abuse, neglect and torture that too many of us look the other way and wait for "somebody else" to step up and do something.   We watch and listen in disgust at what we see on TV and read in the papers, and cheer for the rare individual who stands up and takes action - even if that action is as simple as calling the authorities, again and again if needed.   Individuals that commit crimes against helpless and defenseless creatures will surely be held accountable in one way or another - just as those who do nothing will.   For some of these tragic creatures I believe that there are "fates worse than death".   
All of us in rescue are all too aware that we "cannot save them all" - we choke on that reality each and every day of our lives. We try to do our best by the dogs we can save, praying for justice and a swift journey over the bridge for those we cannot. We all hope for, and work toward the day when the words "pit bull" or "pit bull mix" will not automatically mean death to these loving, devoted and magnificent animals.   Death comes all too soon for too many of them.
Apathy, fear and ignorance are the reasons that I have some of the very best dogs in the world in my care.  I continue to be ready for the next call with a warm crate and comforter, fresh food and water, ready to journey out once more to help where and when I can - with a prayer in my heart that I will not be too late.
Joanie Wazney -  Co-Founder, The Buster Foundation
