Lots Going On!!

OMG!  Sandy the Stupid Super Storm sure complicated matters!  Where did the last month go??  Thank you all very much for taking care of PetSmart while I was away.  Each year the planning becomes easier and easier.

So...what is going on?  Bunny was brought back to the Shelter to see the vet for a sore on her front paw.  She is doing just fine and will be on meds a few more days.

Tiger went home last weekend and will be living with a older dog and older cat.  He is going to have a nice Thanksgiving with his new family!!  They are thrilled to have him.

We did get an application for Glory right before I left for vacation.  Unfortunately it did not work out.  Hopefully her day will come soon!!

Three new cats arrived on Tuesday afternoon..Snowball, Gus and Tinkerbell.  All are easy going and will acclimate to a home with other cats, kids and dogs. Snowball is a black and white male going on three years old.  He was adopted as a kitten from one of the area veterinarian offices in October 2010.  Unfortunately now the owner had to move and the new landlord will not allow Snowball to live in the new place.  Gus is an orange and white male about five months old that came into the Shelter as a stray.  He is playful and loving - but may appear shy at first.  Tinkerbell is a pretty blue cream calico over a year old.  She is another victim of the old "I'm moving and can't take the cat with me."  So sad.  Please keep an eye on the new guys and once they seem comfortable let them out to play together! They're a good lot!!



Barb Allison is again organizing Shelter participation in the West Cape May Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 1.  The theme this year is "Harley Hounds."  Please contact Barb at if you would like to participate.

The Shelter's annual Christmas Open House and Santa Paws Pet Pictures is Sunday, December 16, 12:30pm - 2:30pm.  Hopefully many of you can stop in!  Refreshments will be provided!  Please tell your friends and family to stop in as well.  Tel people that if they are bring a pet for a picture with Santa Paws they should bring their own camera.  If you they do not have they can borrow ours and we'll email the picture.  I'll also email all of you a flyer that you can print out and distribute.  Feel free to send it to anyone you think may be interested.

I am gearing up for the 2013 calendar.  If you have a regular day and time and can no longer make that commitment please contact me ASAP.  If I do not hear from you I will continue to schedule you as I have been.  Sadly we are saying goodbye to two wonderful regular volunteers - Paige and Toni.  Thank you both for all you have done for the Shelter, particularly the PetSmart program.  Believe me when I say you will be missed. Should anything change you are always welcome back!!!!

Saturday, December 1 dogs will be again making an appearance at PetSmart!
