Week of 1/20/13 Humane Happenings

 by Eliana Aubin 

I'm ready for a walk, Tina!
The Sierra County Humane Society is a non-profit 501-C-3 animal welfare organization dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of companion animals down-on-their-luck. As a community minded organization, the SCHS offers several programs for the residents of Sierra County, one of which is the Adopt-a-Pet Referral program. It allows a Sierra County pet owner who can no longer care for that pet to give him every chance possible at a loving new home, whether it is local or out-of-the area. Contact us at 575-894-1694 or e-mail us at AdoptApet4life@gmail.com for more information. Through the Adopt-a-Pet Referral Program, the SCHS offers free referral services to anyone interested in adopting a favorite type of dog or cat and willing to adopt directly from the animal’s owner.

Volunteer opportunities are available year around within our organization. Would you like to get involved in some way? Let us know! We need dog walkers and cat aficionados at the sanctuary. You like birds? Let us know! We can use your help in Birdland. Morning Animal Care starts at 8 AM each morning.

Paws & Claws Thrift Shoppe keeps Desert Haven Animal Refuge in operation. We are open from 11 am to 4 pm, Wednesday through Saturday every week. We need helpers every business day. We also need someone to handle the Arts & Crafts section.

This week’s wish list: Bird and sunflower seeds - Large plastic containers that we can use to keep a constant supply of fresh water in Dog Town and the Cool Cat Neighborhood. The tick season is on its way and we are preparing a tick repellent treatment program for the residents of DogTown. An individual treatment program is costly, as everyone who owns a dog is aware of. Would some of our readers be interested in helping sponsor a dog or two and cover their monthly treatment? Do you have some personal tried-and-true advice to share with us? Let us know.

Contact us at 894-1694 or weR4pets@gmail.com .
