COUNTRY ANIMAL SHELTER MISSION STATEMENT
The Elk Country Animal
Shelter shall be committed to providing a caring shelter and eventual placement
of adoptable animals; be advocates for companion animals; provide education
on the proper care of animals and promote understanding of the need to
control the population of unwanted animals.
The cold weather is now here, which means it's time to give special attention to you pets to keep them safe and warm during the winter months. In cold weather keep your pets away from anitfreeze solution; Antifreeze is attractive to pets and is DEADLY!!
Extremely short-coated breeds should'nt go outside without a sweater or coat unless it's for a short period of time. Watch for ice balls that can build up between pads. Keep pads clean from salt and make sure you are using pet friendly salt that isn't harmful to your pet. Outdoor pets need a sheltered place that is DRY; wet bedding
will make them colder. Keep cats indoors as much as possible! If your cat goes outside make sure they have a warm place to go and check your vehicles engine. This months meeting will be held on February 8th at 6:30pm in the Humane Education room; All is welcomed!
We are in need of dog and cat food! We feed regular Pedigree Dog Food and regular Purina Cat and Kitten Chow.
We accept donations during any regular shelter hours. Thank You!
OF THE WEEK
The shelter cupboards are getting empty – we really need Pedigree dry dog food, dry cat food, bleach and paper toweling – if you can help with some of these items we would be very grateful!
|Hi Everyone! My name is Graycie, I'm just barely a year old and looking for my new home. I'm a very pretty dilute calico with tabby stripes. I keep myself very clean so my coat is always
very smooth and sleek making me a pleasure to pet-which by the way I LOVE to be petted! I love attention and really enjoy the company of people friends. The people at the shelter so far did everything they could for me, they spayed me, gave me my shots,
gave me a test and even a microchip; but there is one thing still missing - my new home! So here I am as pet of the week looking for that special someone to come into my life - could it be you? There are many cats to choose from here at the shelter so
competition is pretty stiff here so I hope that seeing my picture will give me the upper edge on getting a home. Please come and visit me, pet me and find out just what a nice pretty cat I am. Give the shetler a call if you need to find out more about me.
PET ANGEL PROGRAM
Is your house already full of pets, or maybe you aren't home enough to care for a pet? We have a way for you to help a shelter dog or cat find that forever home.
Elk Country Animal Shelter offers the "Pet Angel Program." It allows one person, a group of friends, or a service club, to sponsor a shelter dog or cat.
For $200 you can sponsor a dog or $150 sponsors a cat. This covers the adoption fee and provides toys, beds, a nice size bag of food, treats and a new collar and leash. And as always, the pet will be spayed or neutered, have all vaccinations and a microchip. There is a nice placard that has your name on it, that will be placed over the kennel or cat cage. You will receive a thank you, but most of all you will have helped a dog or cat who really needed a helping hand.
