We are proud to share Dalana Bewley Huss' announcement about her dog Benny: "Thanks to the strong foundation received in Gail McCarthy's Nose Work classes over the 18 plus months, Benny just earned his United Kennel Club Advanced Interiors (AI) Nose Work title on February 7, 2016, in Whitmore Lake, MI. This title, plus the one he earned in Advanced Vehicles (AV) Nose Work at the November 20-23, 2015 UKC trials in Hutto, Texas, now make Benny the '2nd Most Multi-Titled UKC Dog in the History of the Breed!'
When you work in an animal shelter with tight quarters, you quickly learn to make use of every inch of space. You build a nook in your supply room so a shy cat can have a quiet place to sleep. The spot behind your desk doubles as an extra dog kennel. And meetings with adopters often take place by the outdoor benches because there’s simply no room indoors to talk. With just 1,700 square feet of indoor space, Baypath Humane Society knows this challenge well. That’s why they were thrilled to win the Especially for Pets Nail Clipping Grant in early 2015. With those funds, the shelter was able to realize its dream of creating its very own “Real Life Room”.
Carol is a dedicated sales associate in Newton and is very excited to begin making therapy visits with her Border Terrier, Fox. Founded in 1985, Pets & People Foundation offers pet-assisted therapy to residents of nursing homes, special needs facilities, children’s facilities and hospitals. We wish this new Therapy Team all the best and know they will bring joy to many!
Especially for Pets has donated $6,248 to Little Paws Dachshund Rescue (LPDR), our 2015 fourth quarter Charity Nail Clipping Recipient. This donation is a result of the money we collected from our customers for nail clipping services.
According to Fabre Sanders, Co-Chair of LPDR, this donation could not have come at a better time. “Earlier this week we got a call from a veterinarian in New Jersey who had a dachshund in their care that got tangled up in a bad situation and was hit by a car going 35 miles per hour.
