Brutus is on the mend, ready for a new home
Our pet pick of the week is Brutus. Brutus is a senior boy around 8 or 9 years old and is a wonderful, laid-back, quiet, flat-coated retriever mix who will make a great family dog. He is great with dogs, cats, and children. He is looking for a quiet home where he can be your constant companion. Brutus has been with us for months gaining weight, getting healthy and re-growing his fur which he had lost due to neglect and allergies. He is currently in foster care getting the love and attention he deserves and the medicated baths he needs as he continues to heal. If you are interested in adopting this endearing, special needs dog please call the shelter and we'll arrange a visit through his foster mom.
Join us this Saturday, Nov. 10 as two great bands, The Rugged and 4Lo, rock the night away in support of the shelter. The benefit event by the bands will be held from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Legion Hall in Rockland. They are requesting a $10 donation. There will be a cash bar and refreshments.
On Tuesday, Nov. 13 from 5 to 8 p.m. The Loyal Biscuit Co. and Trackside Station are hosting a fourth, fun-filled Pints for Paws event to benefit the shelter. One dollar from every pint sold will go to the shelter, plus there will be lots of fabulous raffle prizes. There will be live music from Paddy Mills. It's sure to be a great time.
