Fall in love with Robinson
Thank you to all who came out to walk for and support the homeless animals at our Whisker Walk and Family Day. We had an incredible turnout with dogs of all breeds, sizes, and colors from tea cup Chihuahuas to Great Danes, from shih tzus to St. Bernard's. Our new venue, at Harbor Park in Rockland, was universally enjoyed with a stroll on the boardwalk and down Main Street Rockland with the idyllic harbor as a backdrop to the day's events. We'd like to thank all the walkers, our sponsors, the vendors, crafters, rescue groups, Just Jump'n Bouncy House and guests who made the day a huge success. A special thank you to Steven Seekins and Naomi Howe for an awesome agility demonstration and parade of breeds and to Trooper Smith for his Police K-9 Unit demonstration. Thank you also to the Rusty Hinges who provided their musical talents to the festivities. Missy Parkerton of North Haven took top honors for the third year in a row raising an outstanding $1,623. The Fox Island Friends of Missy Parkerton, Joette Adams and Jenni Goodell was the leading pack, collecting a combined $3,266. A great time was had by all. Hope to see you all again next year. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Thank you to all the Rockland Main Street businesses who joined the festivities and showed their support by dressing up their windows for our big event.
Our pet pick of the week is Robinson, an affable brown and white adult male tabby. There's a whole lot to love about this big boy. To know him is to love him. Come on in and meet Robinson and fall in love. Adoption Special Alert: Nine Lives for Nine Dollars. Now through the end of September adult cats, including Robinson, can be adopted for just $9, kittens are available for $90.
We owe a debt of gratitude to the great crew from FMC, led by Rod Mason, who rolled up their sleeves and did a tremendous amount of work at the shelter as part of the company's Community Service Committee. The group worked all day cleaning the siding of our building, putting together kennels and best of all, constructing an outdoor pen for our cats. Now, our feline friends can bask in the fresh air and sunshine in a safe and secure area while they wait for a home of their own. Not only did the crew donate their time, talent and hard work but they also donated all the materials to do the work. Thank You.
