Need Help with the New Shelter Building

To all that may be interested: The commissioners have donated 1.54 acres of land for the New Stokes Shelter. We are getting sooooo close, it is unbelieable. What we need is: if 2000 people would donate $20, tax deductible, checks made to Shelter Building Fund, sent to SBF c/o
1020 Alamo Rd. Walnut Cove, NC 27052..
The monies would allow us to buy the building would allow us to put in air/heat , runs, do the kitty/puppy visitation room, do the very small office ( do not want to waste space), get gravel parking...we would be able to get it open this time next year....WOW...If it were not for Sarah Johnson at the Stokes County Animal Shelter, Mona Triplett with the Stokes County Humane Society and Candis Loy with the Animal REscue of Stokes County, none of this would be occurring.
Thank you thankyou thankyou...NOW...get out there and lets get hoping.
Also a Fundraiser will occur on June is a Poker Run;; $10 per person, includes lunch and more fun than you can get ready and come the clinic  336-591-8250....lets make this happen folks..THANKS to everyone....deb cowan

Just like the northeast areas with Sandy the Storm, we should all be preparing our pets for winter.
Make sure outdoor pets have clean, warm, dry, draft-free housing. Make sure that the areas in front of housing are not going to become mudholes.
Indoor pets need to be checked for parasites (fleas, tapeworms etc) and make sure all pets Indoors and Outdoors are still getting their monthly Heartworm parasite prevention.
I may be big, but I need shelter and care

please think about my safety

Senior Pet month

In November the Animal Hospital of Walnut Cove recognizes senior pets ( older than 5 yrs) We celebrate their lives by providing a lower cost Blood Panel during the month. The panel, like what you do at your human doctor, checks pets for Diabetese, Liver and Kidney disease. Please call to set up an apt. 

Our Assistants will pull a little blood, and within 20 minutes, we can give you information on your pets' health.

October is Here

Now is the time to get your outdoor pets' enviroment ready for winter. Check houses for air and water leaks, make sure you put thick new bedding down, pine shavings are much better than cedar ( resin in cedar can cause skin irritation and respiratory problems)
Make sure that water buckets are clean and easily accessible, also make sure that food buckets are clean.  A covered feeding and drinking station, close to the house really saves money ( food does not get wet)....Make sure you are providing correct housing...LEAN-tos are NOT.

Call us if we can help..... 591-8250

In case you've been in a bubble, please remember it will be in the 100degrees outdoors for the next 3 days. Please make sure that neither you nor your pets have an issue with heat. Make sure there is plenty of shade, water ( that the water is fresh and kept clean.) a pool is a great idea, keep it in the shade too.
Frozen green beans or carrots are a great treat.
NOOOOO jogging, playing freezbee, ball, running...everyone will collapse.

I think you can see that they agree:)

Even for Outdoor pets, this is NOT typical.
