LONELY HEARTS NEED YOU!
We have many adoptable cats here at the shelter who have been with us for over 45 days. These cats have more of the quiet, reserved type of personality. However, once given attention they are very loyal and loving to those they trust. They would like to find a family to love and be loved by. To help with their adoption, we have reduced their fee to $25. These cats are spayed/neutered. Please pass the word along and make plans to stop by.
DOG BITE PREVENTION WEEK
Did you know 50 percent of all children in the United States may be bitten by a dog before their 12th birthday? About 650,000 bites a year are severe enough to require medical treatment, while 1 to 2 million goes unreported. The vast majority of dog bites are from a dog unknown to the child-his or her own pet, a neighbor’s or friends. You can help prevent this from happening to your child. Please discuss with him or her the appropriate way to behave around dogs. Here are some tips that will help you and your children understand the difference between safe and potentially dangerous interactions with dogs.
Pledges that you can make with you child are:
- I will not stare into a dog’s eyes.
- I will not tease dogs behind fences.
- I will not touch a dog I see loose (off-leash) outside.
- If I see a loose dog, I will tell an adult immediately.
- I will not run and scream if a loose dog comes near me.
- I will stand very still (like a post), and will be very quiet if a dog comes near me.
- I will not touch or play with a dog while he or she is eating.
- I will not touch a dog when he or she is sleeping.
- I will only pet a dog if I have received permission from the dog’s owner.
- Then I will ask permission of the dog by letting him sniff my closed hand.
Join us in celebrating National Dog Bite Prevention week May 13-17 by educating your child
