UW-Green Bay alumna Amanda Reitz and her no-kill animal shelter were the subject of an in-depth story on the cover of the Green Bay Press-Gazette’s Sunday (July 14) Lifestyle section. As Log readers may recall, Reitz ’08 founded Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary in 2005 while still a student at UW-Green Bay. The no-kill shelter, based in Marion with an adoption center in Ashwaubenon, has been busier than ever this summer thanks to a new partnership with Packerland Veterinary Center, the Press-Gazette reported. In May, the Green Bay City Council voted to award a new contract for stray animal services to Packerland; and since June 1, any animals at Packerland not claimed by owners within a week go to Happily Ever After. The shelter has had to get creative to accommodate the additional animals, Reitz said. “Change is always hard. We’re trying to make sure we can still balance the animals we were serving before with the animals we need to serve now,” Reitz told reporter Kendra Meinert. “We were asked by a lot of members in the Green Bay community … to take this on. People want a no-kill community. With their help, hopefully we can provide it.” Read the story.
