Pet of the Week

Pet Tip of The Week: Treat your dog with heartworm preventative.Heartworms are caused by bites from infected mosquitoes. Without treatment, heartworms will eventually cause the dog to die from heart failure. Heartworm prevention is easy to administer and can save your pet’s life. Contact your vet for more information.

Our rescue group has a great need for Foster Families. Becoming a foster family to 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.

Second Chance is in need of donations of the following items:

Dog Food

Puppy Chow

Old towels, rags

Gently used collars, leashes, bowls, beds.

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

Our pet of the week is Penny, a female Dachshund mix. Penny is very sweet and playful and likes other dogs and people. She is about a year old. Penny is available for adoption for a fee of $25.00. This fee covers a current parvo/distemper vaccination, a heart worm test, rabies vaccination, a reduced rate on spaying and a 50% discount from Reigning Cats and Dogs for an obedience class. PLUS you get Penny!!

Second Chance-Mason Animal Rescue is making all of this available to any dog adopted through Second Chance. We are dedicated to having all dogs current on their vaccinations and recommend spaying and neutering as part of animal care and preventing euthanizing of unwanted puppies. 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.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering Penny, please contact Casey Clevenger at 347-4521. If Penny is not what you are looking for we also have several other dogs as well as cats and kittens, including the one pictured, available for adoption. Please contact Casey to find out about them.
