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.
TRAVELING WITH YOUR CANINE COMPANION
Many of you are traveling for Memorial Day weekend and plan on bringing your canine companion with you. Whether you are traveling far or near there are some essentials you should bring with you for your canine companion.
- Water bowl and a gallon of water, which you can replenish as needed.
- Enough food for the trip-both ways- with a few extra meals.
- Collar with identification tags.
- A leash. Be sure to have the leash attached to the animal’s collar when he/she is out of the car. New noises, friends, and enemies in parking lots and rest areas could encourage him/her to depart hastily.
- Toys, they will help keep him/her entertained when you arrive at your destination and possibly even in the vehicle.
- Bedding/blanket from home and a crate. It is good to have the smells of home when traveling it provides some security when in a different environment.
- Current veterinarian records, should anything happen you have them on hand. Please make sure your pet is current on vaccinations, especially their rabies vaccine.
- A current photo should they become lost.
- A pooper-scooper and some plastic bags for disposal. Consider that ordinances will vary in places where you stop.
- First Aid Kit
Remember these tips as you travel with your companion and have a safe trip!
