CLEARWATER TRIBUNE HOME

APRIL 8, 2010

Barn buddies need homes

    Recently, a local gentleman passed away. A home was found for his dog. We need to find homes for 7-8 outside cats. These cats have always been fed and provided water and shelter. They were friendly with their owner. If you are interested in providing one or more of these cats with a lifetime home, please call 476-9823.

    Last week I wrote my article on a missing dog out on Highway 12. Sadly, this dog was found deceased in the middle of highway 12. A very caring citizen stopped and picked up the dog so no further damage would be done. She kept the dog’s body at her house until the owners could retrieve it.

    Thanks to everyone who kept looking for this frightened dog.

 

This poor dog was found April 5 at Meeks Trailer Court on Orofino Creek Road. Call 476-9823 if you have any information.

Our policy on strays

    All stray dogs and cats are vaccinated upon arrival for their safety and the safety of the other dogs and cats. They are also neutered and spayed on the sixth (6) day. All costs are the responsibility of the owner claiming the dog. Strays are held for five (5) days and then are for adoption.

Wish list:
Dog and kitten food needed

    Dog food is really needed-adult only.

    We need large stainless steel bowls for water. We also need treats for training, small milk bones and other tasty treats are great.

    **Please donate cat/kitten food.** We have 13 cats and kittens now. Dry kitten food, Purina kitten food is ok. Friskies canned food, ground only, is also greatly needed! Please help us help them.***

    We are almost out of blankets. Please donate your clean used ones.

    We really need canned and dry cat/kitten food and litter right now. We also need small ceramic bowls for the kitten and cat food. We also need covered litter pans.

    We need towels to bathe our dogs and cats. Please don’t throw your old towels away—we will put them to good use.

    ***We need nylabones and tug toys for the dogs/puppies and toys for our cats/kittens right now.***

    You can drop all donations of food, toys, blankets, etc. at Orofino Builders Supply. Steve and Leila Crockett continue to be animal lovers and great supporters.

    Remember, your donations are tax deductible. Thank you for thinking of us!

Lost and found

    If you find a stray dog, please contain the dog or cat, if you feel it is safe to do so, and then call. Many times I get a call from someone that has a stray but by the time I get there the person calling says the dog ran off. Please contain in a yard or tie the dog until I get there. We want to keep these poor dogs safe and either find their owners or get them a wonderful lifetime home.

    All stray dogs and cats are vaccinated and wormed upon arrival for their safety and the safety of the other dogs and cats. They are also neutered and spayed after a five (5) day waiting period. All costs are the responsibility of the owner claiming the dog or cat. Strays are held for five days and then are up for adoption.

    If you recognize any of the above strays and know who the owner is, please call. We want to get these wonderful dogs and cats back to their homes. Call 476-9823.
