Pet Tip of the Week:
Spay or Neuter Your Pet
Wednesday, June 13, 2012 • Posted June 13, 2012

An estimated four million cats and dogs are euthanized in animal shelters in the United States each year. You can do your part to control pet overpopulation by spaying or neutering your pets.

The goal of Second Chance is to have every dog and cat adopted through our organization be spayed or neutered prior to the adoption. This is the only way to win the battle against overpopulation. If anyone would like to make a donation to help us reach this goal please mail them to P.O. Box 755.

Second Chance would like to make members of the community aware that our city’s shelter is not a no-kill facility. Our group is working closely with the city to find homes for the cats & dogs, but if the shelter is overcrowded the city will be euthanizing. If you or someone you know is considering surrendering their animal to the city shelter we ask that you contact us before doing so. We would rather have you keep your pet while we assist you with trying to find it a new home. Please contact Casey Clevenger at 347-4521 if you are thinking of surrendering your pet.

Fostering a cat or dog is a great way to help us remove the dog/cat from the shelter facility to a stable home environment. Someday Second Chance hopes to have their own facility but until then we have to rely on members of the community to help us give these dogs and cats a caring temporary homes. If anyone is interested in filling out our Foster Application please contact Casey Clevenger at 347-4521.

This week we are in need of the following supplies:

Dog Food

Puppy Chow

Old towels, rags

Gently used collars, leashes, bowls, beds

The above items can be dropped off at the Chamber Office on the square.

We have two pets of the week this week. The first is Jasmine, a very friendly female pit bull mix. The second is Callie, a cuddly female kitten. Both are looking for loving permanent homes. If you are interested in adopting either of these two girls, please contact Casey Clevenger at 347-4521.

Thanks again to everyone who has helped as a volunteer or a donor. Your support is very much appreciated.
