INKAS was formed to support the no-kill philosophy of the Ivins Municipal Animal Shelter and Adoption Center. In addition to raising funds, we promote the no-kill status to gain goodwill, which leads to increased community support and donations.
INKAS does not provide cash directly to the Ivins Shelter. Instead we directly pay for various items and services that the shelter needs and requests, such as veterinary care, food, medications, cages, litter boxes, bedding, harnesses and leashes, etc. Capital improvements to the shelter are also a priority.
INKAS works with the City of Ivins under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding. All Directors and Officers of INKAS are unpaid volunteers
INKAS is currently working on raising $25,000 in order to underwrite four badly-needed Ivins animal shelter projects: (1) expand the building and the community cat cage, as well as needed storage space; (2) relieve the drainage issues that affect the outside dog area; (3) cover the outside dog area with screening material that will provide shade but let light and air in; and (4) purchase a portable air conditioning unit to cool the two interior shelter rooms that are served by the swamp cooler for air-flow control purposes.
In addition, of course, INKAS will continue to pay for all the various items and services that the shelter needs and requests in order to provide a loving and comfortable “waiting place” for the homeless animals until they find their forever homes.
