Thank You Medfield Brownie Troop #7487!

Wow, Medfield Brownie Troop #7487 collected donations for the shelter and boy did they do a great job! They came by for a visit and to drop off the donations yesterday, and they filled our lobby. They brought us all of our most needed items including tons of canned cat and dog food, laundry detergent, cat litter, garbage bags, sponges and much, much more. We are so grateful to this generous and hard-working group of girls. There is not a day that goes by that we don't feel grateful to live in such a generous community.

Adopt a Shelter Pet Stamps Coming Soon!

On April 30, 2010, the Postal Service™ will issue a 44–cent, Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet special stamp in ten designs, designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC.

With these 10 stamp designs, the U.S. Postal Service hopes to raise awareness of the need to adopt shelter pets. The pets depicted on the stamps were photographed by Sally Andersen-Bruce near her home in New Milford, Connecticut. All had been homeless at one time; all but one had been adopted when they were photographed.

Photos of Lucky (formerly Louie) in his home

We heard from Lucky the Corgi's family today and received some adorable photos of him. Sounds like he is indeed Lucky, according to this nice note:

Lucky rocks! He gets along really well with our 8-year old Hovawart and is much better with the cats than she is. He’s very funny, loves to sleep on the sofa, to go for walks in the woods and is the cutest dog on the planet (according to my husband who is completely smitten with Lucky).
He’s a great addition to our family, we’re lucky to have him.

Rabies Clinic April 3rd

The Medfield Animal Shelter will be hosting a rabies vaccination clinic on Saturday, April 3rd at the Shelter. The rabies clinic is open to all pet owners and the cost is $10 per pet. To receive a three year vaccination you must bring your certificate of last rabies vaccination, or the vaccination will only be good for one year. Dr. Heather Cochran, DVM, from Main Street Veterinary Hospital in Millis will be vaccinating cats from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and dogs from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. All dogs must be leashed and cats must be in carriers.

Three new dogs arrived at the shelter today

We took in a yellow Lab mix, Barry, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Mabel, and a Great Pyrenees mix, Anastasia, who looks like a Golden Retriever. They are a fun and friendly bunch and get along well together, so they are planning to enjoy this weekend's sunny weather out in our doggie play yard.
