New Management At Home At Last

New management has begun its work at the Home At Last animal shelter in The Dalles.  Home At Last has merged with Central Oregon Animal Friends, whose organization’s executive director Steve Drynan and director of operations Jerilee Drynan both were involved with Home At Last before moving to the Madras area about a decade ago.  Steve Drynan says the transition in management is underway, starting with implementing policies and figuring out the situation of the animals at the shelter.  He adds rebuilding the volunteer base and dealing with the shelter’s financial issues are also top priorities, noting the shelter facility is clean and in good shape.  Drynan notes shelter managers are currently being trained in both The Dalles and at their Madras facility.  He emphasized the key to success long-term will be very good animal care and customer service.
