Hey hey hey there folks,
I’m coming to you live and direct from the Humane Society, and boy-oh-boy do I have some news for y’all! First and foremost, our litter of eight puppies are looking great. They are constantly playing with one another as well as putting a decent dent in our puppy food. We are happy to see them getting bigger and becoming closer for adoption! They still need a little more time with us, however, that doesn’t mean you can’t stop by and say hi to these pups!
In other news, the shelter is humming along and busy as can be. As of right now, we are currently have over 120 animals within our walls. Which is both great and a little tough – great because the staff and volunteers get to spend time with all these wonderful critters, and tough in the sense, that we unfortunately can’t take in all the animals we would like to. But, the month of April has been great so far we have adopted out eight animals and with a few more on overnights or in foster!
Once again, it’s time for our bit of knowledge for week. As we get ready for the summer months it is important to remember that Heartworm prevention is key for your pooches. With all the mosquitos buzzing about, those pesky buggers can put a permanent damper on things. Luckily, at our facility we make sure that all our doggos that come into our care go through proper testing for adult and juvenile heart worms. This is an essential step before treatment and adoption. However, our shelter does have some dogs who are positive, but would love to find an awesome foster human to hang out with outside the shelter until they get their clean bill of health.
Oh, and if you’re interested in some light reading on the subject here is a link to the American Heartworm Society.
Until next week,
