A letter from our president
Paws-Ability’s 2nd adoption fair met with some very hot weather on Saturday that did keep some visitors away, but Saturday was a good day for 5 animals! Ask these 5 animals if your efforts were appreciated! You will probably get a big sloppy kiss as a reward. Volunteers worked very hard to plan, organize and make this adoption fair a plus for our rescue shelters. I am sorry some did not attend.
Cat Tails had 2 kitties adopted. One was a black cat. In case you are not aware, black cats are the LEAST likely cats to find homes! Imagine that! If you are ever looking to adopt a cat from Cat Tails, remember these “black beauties” and give them a chance. Black cats need love too! Cat Tails had a feral baby from OIB that has taught us all a lesson. The kitty was born feral and now lays on her back for tummy rubs! If you every thought feral cats are different from any other domestic cat, this certainly shows there is no difference. Isn’t it amazing what a little love will do!
NC Rescue League had a small dog adopted. He was a terrier mix and left with his new family actually smiling!
Adopt an Angel brought 2 adult, large dogs, Hannah and Blackie. They were surrendered by an elderly couple when their living arrangements changed due to health. The dogs were very loved and cared for and both were trained very well. Both dogs were adopted together. What a lucky family they are!
Our children’s program, PETUCATION, chaired by Cameron Brand handed out lots of brochures to introduce the program to elementary schools in the county.
Best Friends Biscuits, our new business member showed off their hand made dog treats. Her treats are sold at the Coffee dog in Calabash if you need more.
The day actually made about $400 for our shelters thanks in part to our raffle items that were donated and those fabulous hot dogs!
A rather large THANK YOU goes out to Cheri McLain and GreenUp! Cheri has worked on this adoption fair all year. Without the efforts of all volunteers and planners, Saturday would never have happened. Thank you for your time, efforts and your caring that made this day a success. Know that your efforts mean 5 animals have found forever homes! I am always so proud of this organization!
