So far not many pets have been reported missing as a result of Tropical Storm Irene. That may change and we want to remind people that if you have lost or found a pet in Rutland County, call us at 802-483-6700 24/7. Our staff or answering service can give you information that will help. You can also post on our Facebook page. Thanks to Advanced Answering for providing this service at no charge to RCHS for many years. Irene was a reminder that disaster planning should include your pets. For information on how to plan ahead go to http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/disaster-preparedness/.
Irene Cancels RCHS Dog Pool Party
Hurricane Irene forced us to cancel the Dog Days of Summer Pool Party which had been scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 28 at 1 p.m. Right in the middle of the storm. While we were disappointed we had to cancel it, it was the safest thing to do for our attendees, their dogs, our vendors, the pool staff, our volunteers everyone.
A special thanks goes to the Rutland Recreation & Parks Department for offering us White's Pool for the event and an opportunity for a great fundraiser. We are hopeful we can schedule it for next year and try it again!
We have so many animals in need of homes. We know for many of you it is an impossible time to adopt, but hope those of you unaffected will consider giving a great pet a new beginning.
One year old. Spayed female. Domestic Short Hair Brown Tiger. Weighs 9 pounds.
I am a sweet little girl and enjoy a nice warm bed to curl up in when I take my naps. I can be playful when I want to be but for the most part I am content just hanging out. It will be important for my new family to keep me inside-only because I have decided the outside world is too wild and crazy for me.
