School Daze

Rusty asks, "Hey, Kodiak, is it school time yet?"

**********

Only three more weeks until The Herd leads the Downtown Dog Walk on Saturday, August 7, 10 a.m., in Waynesville, NC.  Enter the Walking with The Herd Contest by clicking that link for all of the details, downloading this form, and mailing it to us with a check to SARF.  You could win a t-shirt of you walking with The Herd at the front of the parade (thanks to the power of PhotoShop – no matter where you live).  Rumor has it that Sarge adopted out 9 cats – NINE – on Saturday at their HQ – and that doesn’t count the other adoption events – just the one at the HQ.  Six dogs and cats are rescued every day by Sarge’s.  Can you help us make it more?

    They rescue cats as well? Now that’s good news.

      Yes, Huff, they are an equal opportunity rescue and help cats as well. Interestingly, cats are actually a bigger problem. We seem to have made more headway on spay and neuter with dogs (though a looooooong ways to go), but much work in the cat area. In this rural area, a lot of cats are considered “barn” cats, expected to basically feed and care for themselves with maybe a little food thrown out for them. Thus, the population problem is high and only the coyotes like this arrangement.

      P.S. – Makes you appreciate your cushy life a little more, huh?

    Rusty, TD and Phantom keep telling me it is time for me to go to school too – do you think I will like it?

    Woos, Ciara

      Sarge’s rescues lots of cats, but they might be a little suspicious of a Sibes request to “rescue” a cat.

      Our vet, who volunteers for Sarge’s, always has a cage of kittens for adoptions. The Herd finds them VERY interesting.

    Oh that pic has Monday written all over it. Never having been a fan of school I’ll count that particular shade of yellow among my least favorite colors. 😉

Kiska says that on hot, sunny, spring days, you have to find shade wherever you can. Thanks Big Brother Kodiak.
