Lemonade Stand Benefits the Shelter

Samantha Howard and her brother Jackson from Medfield, recently had a lemonade stand at the Wheelock School soccer field to benefit the Medfield Animal Shelter.  The kids sold 52 cups of lemonade!  They came by the shelter recently with a donation $52, which will help buy lots of food for the dogs, cats and bunnies!  They had a shelter tour, and are pictured standing between longtime shelter resident Missy the cat and new addition Chubby the bunny.  Samantha is five years old and Jackson is three.

Spring Clean Up Scheduled for May 14th

This Magnolia was planted in memory of Kerry Sheeran, father of dedicated volunteer Mark Sheeran

Spring is here and the tulips and flowering shrubs at the shelter look gorgeous.  Every year we organize a spring clean up and this year's clean up is scheduled for May 14th from 8:00 - 1:00.  If you are a high school student in need of some community service hours, this is an good way to earn 5 of those hours.  We need people to rake out the beds and the vegetable garden, weed, trim and put down mulch.  Call the shelter at 508.359.8989 or e-mail if you want to help.  We do ask that you sign up in advance so we can notify you of any changes, and let you know what gardening implements you should bring.  Please plan to bring work gloves.
