Two new guys arrived at PetSmart on Sunday. Madame is a "senior" cat. It is estimated she is nine years old. She is sweet and nice and I know you will all love her! Angel is a few years younger than Madame but older than three. She is shy but very nice. I am sure that after spending some time with all of you she will overcome some of that shyness!

On Saturday, February 10, a local Girl Scout Troop visited the shelter as part of a program organized by volunteer, Janet K. Janet initially met with the scouts in October and they discussed responsible pet ownership and pet care techniques as well as the importance of spaying and neutering pets. During the scouts' visit at the Shelter, they spent time touring the facility and learning about food preparation, cleaning and medical procedures. They even observed blood being drawn for testing from a kitten who had just arrived at the Shelter. The scouts named the kitty "Panda." In addition each member of the Troop was permitted time to pet and cuddle one of the Shelter cats. The program was a great success with both the scouts and the staff. Here is a picture of the visitors along with Shelter animal attendant, Jess, who is holding Panda. Looks like a bunch of future volunteers to me!!
