CANINE CARE DONATIONS

Pipestone Flyer

Debi Bailer wants to remind everyone that donations of gently used pet supplies and unopened food packages for the Edmonton Humane Society can be made all year 'round at the donation box in “Through the Woof Canine Salon and Barkery” in Wetaskiwin, with the need greater at Christmas.  She got her first dogs through the Edmonton Humane Society, and appreciates their work which reaches out all over Alberta.  She greatly appreciates the already generous response this Christmas season.  Supplies for cats and birds may also be made to the society through the donation box.  The Society is also seeking funds for a new building.  Some friends of the Society are rolling pennies for paws.

    Donations may also be made to the “Glenpark Pet Hotel & Suites” located at 48219 Range Road #251 north-west of Millet.  

    She would also like to remind everyone to be really certain that a pet given as a gift at Christmas is the right pet at the right time.  The excitement, noise, and hyper-activity of Christmas Day in a strange setting can be very frightening to an animal, especially a baby animal.  At the same time, in the excitement of the day, it is very easy to forget about or ignore the immediate needs of that new member of the household.  Unfortunately, after Christmas quite a few of these new Christmas pets are brought to shelters because the new owners can't handle them or find the pets are too big a commitment.
