May 2019 NEWSLETTER

Happy National Pet Week!
We hope you and your pet(s) are enjoying the fantastic weather we have been given, in between rain showers that is!   Now that it is warming up, our pups love to spend more time outside.  However research tells us that 1 in 3 dogs will become lost at some point.  We see these posts too often.   As you spring clean the yard be sure to look for places your pet might escape.  Also make sure your pet is micro chipped  and that it is registered with the correct contact information.  Many times we move or change contact information and forget to update our pet's chip.  According to AKC Reunite, pets that are chipped are 20% more likely to be reunited with their owners.  


If you have been to visit our website, you might notice a few changes!  We are working on making it look a little fresher and easier to use and find the important things you might be looking for.   
It Takes a Village...

We cannot thank The Pour House enough for the generosity to help us raise some money with our Tito's and Tails event this past weekend.  We could not have asked for a better day and turn out.  With our donations raised we are able to completely vet many pets.  That may not seem like a lot, but the average vetting per dog can be around $250.  So if you came out to support us, we thank you!  We hope everyone that attended enjoyed the event because we know we did.  We are already planning next year's event.

We also want to say a special thank you to those of you that have recently completed a birthday fundraiser for us or contributed to Eddie's Fundraiser.  We have had several vet bills and training bills that have went well above our average costs.   Our mission is to help at-risk dogs and cats find a forever home.  When we commit to a pet, we will provide the needs regardless of the price.  The more volunteers, supporters, and money directly impacts how many we can help.  So thank you!

Danny is searching for his forever home...

 Danny is enjoying his foster home. His favorite thing is going for walks. He knows "sit" and can catch treats in the air when you throw them. He gets along with other dogs, is housebroken and quiet in the house. He stays off the furniture unless invited, in which case he is likely to sit on his foster mom's lap. Danny is a handsome guy, just two years old. 

Congratulations to all our furry friends who were adopted this month.   We wish all our new FPO families a happy trail!
