Valentine pet love, Catahoula meet and greet
Rockland — Visit Rockland Pet Quarters Saturday, Feb. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and meet some Catahoula leopard dogs. After visiting with this unique breed, make that special dog or cat a Valentine treat box to take home.
The activity is recommended for ages 4 and up and a recommended donation of $5 per person for the activity is suggested.
Catahoula Rescue is an all-volunteer group whose mission is to advocate for homeless Catahoula leopard dogs and Catahoula mixes, to place these animals in permanent, loving homes, and to promote responsible guardianship through humane education. The groups main focus is to work with local shelters and dog owners to increase breed awareness, work on behavioral problems/challenges and placement. If a dog is already in a shelter setting the group works with the shelter by either helping to find an approved home or foster placement, provide resources to help facilitate an adoption or by providing an assessment that might lead to an adoption.
