Your July 2016 Monthly Elmore SPCA News & Updates
Elmore exists because of the support of all of you. We are not funded in any way by a larger organization, nor do we receive government aid. Our mission is clear, but our resources are limited. That is why we need you to Help Us...Help Them. 

On Sunday, July 17, Elmore will conduct what has become one of our larger fundraisers. This event is our Annual Golf Tournament, and we invite you to join us by forming a team.  If you do not play golf, then share the information with friends that do. Thank you to everyone, both past and present, that has made this event possible!

How Can You Help?
Donate to Elmore's annual garage sale
Call Carol at 534-3484

The next trip will be on Wednesday, July 20. Trips are made once a month as a service to community residents. Kittens must be at least 3 months to be altered. The cost for spaying a female is $60, and a male $50. A rabies vaccine costs $5 and a distemper shot is a $5 also.  Each feline receives a health check for fleas, ear mites, and tapeworm.  Pickups are done in the morning, and return in the afternoon.  If you are interested in sending your cat or cats to the clinic, please call Carol at 534-3484 to make a reservation or for more information.  

Now in its fifth year, Rescued Treasures, the Elmore SPCA thrift shop, has become a go to place for affordable items by many in the community. Open 10am to 4pm, 6 days a week, we are staffed by twelve talented and dedicated volunteers.
While customers of all ages find what they need at bargain prices, they also provide assistance for Elmore animals, and support recycling of goods that still have useful purpose.
As a member of the Downtown Association, Rescued Treasures seeks to work with other local businesses to improve the downtown shopping experience.  Our participation in First Weekends and Destination Downtown gives customers added opportunity to take advantage of our great prices.
Stop by and view our beautifully designed ever-changing store window displays, and peruse our eclectic inventory. "Like" us on Facebook, and always be up to date on our latest offerings!
