A partnership between California Water Service Company (Cal Water) and the City of Selma resulted in the Selma Animal Shelter getting a new home on Cal Water property. At the June 22 ribbon-cutting celebration in Selma, animal lovers and guests learned more about the new location while sharing in fun festivities.

Guests enjoyed hot dogs and snowcones, educational presentations, informational booths, a pet parade and a contest of the cutest and ugliest pet. Children delighted in face painting, raffles and giveaways. Guests also had the opportunity meet some of the pets available for adoption.

Selma Councilman, Scott Robertson, attended the celebration and commented on the community’s excitement about the shelter’s new location and its accessibility to residents.

To help raise money for the new shelter building, attendees had an opportunity to participate in a silent auction.
