GAIN needs more funds to stay operational

Guam - Representatives from Guam Animals In Need say they're hoping to receive the money allocated to them from the Government of Guam to stay afloat. According to co-manager of GAIN Julie Grady, the non-profit organization is faced with the lack of necessary funds to properly run the animal shelter.

She told KUAM News, "This year, our appropriation is set to be $100,000. If we get it, that's tremendous. Last year was $85,000 but...the last quarter of Fiscal Year 2010 appropriation was allotted to us just last week. So with the budget cutbacks this coming year, we're not sure if we will continue to receive those funds or not."

While GAIN isn't behind on its utility bills, Grady says they're currently living off their savings account, which she says is dwindling fast. In addition, she says they're having a hard time paying employees with the little money they do have.

She says those funds are needed to keep the shelter operational.
