The North Country SPCA would like alert you to some upcoming events for the “dog days of summer” in August to mark in your calendar. Our Annual Open House and Golf Ball Drop will be held on Saturday, Aug. 2 at the Francis Miller Adoption Center in Elizabethtown, NY. Come celebrate with our furry friends, and, while you are there, consider adopting a new family member into your home! On Saturday, Aug. 23 we will be having our ever-popular Antique & Tag Sale at the Whallonsburg Grange. Early Birds arriving between 9 to 10 a.m. will be charged $20 to enter and will have first pick of the items. Visitors arriving between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. will get in for free. You can expect quality items such as furniture, china, collectibles, paintings, jewelry, tools, toys and a zillion other things - this is NOT a rummage sale! For information, or if you have things to donate, please contact Margeret Reuther: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our featured pet this week is Jones, an American Staffordshire Terrier-mix with a gorgeous tawny coat and eyes that twinkle with fun! Jones is one of the nicest dogs you will ever meet. He loves other dogs and is very respectful of cats, but his main passion in life is people!! He adores everyone. He walks very nicely on a leash is keeps his kennel tidy. If you’re looking for a Frisbee partner, Jones is your man -This dog can leap! Jones is always excited to spend time with people and he is one happy boy! We think he is about 2 years old and is SO ready to find his forever home. We think he would be a great family dog and would love to have a couple kids to play ball with.
