Dog Days are coming

We're heading toward the Dog Days of Summer - my favorite time of year. I'm not thrilled with the heat or outcropping of fleas that comes along with it, but at least us canines have a season in recognition of our superiority. You don't see any Cat Days on the calendar, do you?

WAG's got some stuff coming up, too. In August we'll be at the city of Between's anniversary on August 16 with some fun events for pet owners to participate in.

We're also working out details on several community assistance programs. For example, coming up for seniors we've got Animeals on Wheels, helping the pets of seniors in the Meals on Wheels program; our Golden Pairs program, a subsidized assistance program making adoptions and follow-up pet care more affordable for seniors. Our education committee will be creating a pet care program to help our local Boy/Girl Scouts earn animal care badges. And, of course, the spay/neuter program is still going strong. Soon we'll be outlining an application process to make it available to more people who need it.

Just a reminder - Kittens can still be adopted at Boss Brothers Country Store and also at West Walton Feed. They're vaccinated, spayed/neutered and waiting for new homes. Thanks to both BB and WWF for fostering these guys, rather than having them creep all around my house each night!
