2014 ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon

Happy HOWL-oween!
 
While Halloween is a fun time for kids and many adults, it can be a frightening and stressful time for our pets.  Here are a few points to consider when keeping your pet safe away from the visiting ghouls....
  • Who keeps ringing the doorbell?  Some pets may experience stress-related diarrhea or potentially injure themselves if crated.  Respect and honor your pet's quiet space on Halloween.
  • Who are all of these strangers in costumes Even the most mellow pet may become unexpectedly aggressive or fearful of visitors.
  • Keep Jack-o-lanterns and candles in a safe location!  Wagging tails and frightened cats can easily tip over a candle or carved pumpkin.
  • For most, Halloween = candy treats! While many pets also have a sweet tooth, warn children not to share their treats with the family pet.
240 lives saved in 3 days!
On October 17th, 18th and 19th we had the pleasure of joining 33 communities across the country for the ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon presented by Subaru!  During those 3 days a total of 4,865 wet noses found new homes ~ GAHS placed 5% of the total!  

Thank you to all of you who helped make it successful, not only those who adopted but also our amazing staff and dedicated volunteers.  Plus, we can not forget our friends in the community who donated food and goodies to keep everyone fueled up:  Tim Hortons, Pat's Pizza of Auburn, KP's Place, Governor's and The Italian Bakery!  We could not have done it without your support!
