Pet calendar to be unveiled Oct. 12Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County
Our pet picks of the week are Mia and Minnie an adorable pair of 3-year-old Dachshund/Basset Hound mixes. These two sisters are a sweet and loving pair who would like to find a quiet home together where they will be doted on. Their shy and reserved nature was easily won over with a kind voice, patience and the offering of peanut butter biscuits. If you are interested in this darling duo, stop in the shelter and learn more.
Our feline pet pick is Schroeder. Here’s a big sweet boy who just wants to go home. Settled and gentle, he does well with other cats and is quite interested in people as well. With perfect house manners and a winning disposition, he’ll be great pal to come home to every day.
In addition to our normal intake of stray and relinquished cats, last week we received an additional 13 cats from a hoarding situation taxing our limited resources so we are in dire need of canned cat food. Chicken or turkey pate style seems to be the most gentle on stressed tummies. Thank you for your support.
Join us this Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Reading Corner in Rockland for the unveiling of our 2014 Pet Calendar featuring beautiful photos of pets from PMHSKC supporters as well as shelter animals that have been adopted. Calendars can be purchased for only $10 and will also be available for purchase at the shelter facility and many local businesses. They make wonderful gifts and 100 percent of the sale of the calendars will go toward helping the homeless animals at PMHSKC get the care they deserve.
Wish list: Canned cat food, Odoban, 6-inch paper plates, dry dog food, laundry detergent, bleach, large garbage bags, gift cards to Wal-Mart and Staples.
