Bowl for a Buddy Success!
Thanks to all of the participants and sponsors in their involvement in the fifth annual Bowl for a Buddy.
We filled all of the lanes and we are tallying up the final numbers soon. Your support helps us care for the lost, abandoned and unwanted pets in Scott County. As we give every adoptable animal a second chance! THANK YOU!
We are looking for volunteers to wash and fold laundry, clean, unfold newspapers, participate in cat interaction, data entry and walk the dogs.
We also need volunteers for our Events and Volunteer committees which plan fundraising events throughout the year and interact with other volunteers.
There are lots of opportunities available for any age or physical ability.
Volunteer orientation sessions are held at the shelter the first Sunday of every month at 10 a.m. and the third Thursday of every month at 5 p.m.
Each orientation lasts about 90 minutes from the beginning through the question and answer.
Pet of the Month
Glenroads and LeClaire Veterinary Clinic is sponsoring an HSSC Pet Of The Month! Each month, we will showcase an adorable cutie that is available for adoption. When this pet is adopted into their fur-ever home, the new adoptee will receive a complimentary examination by a doctor at the sponsoring clinic and the new pet parent(s) will get a $50 gift certificate to use at the clinic!
