Warm Their Tummies! DOG & CAT Drive!

 

Feeding approximately 300 dogs and cats every day is costly, and we need your help! During Ohio Animal Week, we want to load the lobby with donated food for our animals. In order to keep their diet consistent and not cause intestinal upset, we use the same brand of dog and cat food as often as possible! Here’s what we urgently need:

 

Iams or Eukanuba Dry Dog Food - small bites (This food has been donated up until now, but the program has been discontinued.)

 

Purina Cat Chow

Purina Kitten Chow

Friskies, 9 Lives, or Fancy Feast pate

 

Everyday supplies are always needed: Bleach, Snuggle Fabric Softener, OdoBan, paper towels, and trash bags (55 gallon and tall kitchen).

Empty the Shelter! Reduced Adoption Fees!

 

We have hundreds of dogs and cats ready for adoption! In an effort to find them forever homes, adoption fees will be lowered during Ohio Animal Week. A shelter is a temporary place, as the best place for every animal is in a real home! Every time an animal is adopted, space is created for the next dog or cat needing our help. All animals have been spayed or neutered, wormed, heart worm or FIV/Felv tested, and microchipped! Come visit us and find your next best friend! 

 

Dogs - $100

Puppies $150

Cats $25

Kittens $50

Ohio Chautauqua-Brimfield Adult Program: Dianne Moran

Dian Fossey, Passionate Mountain Gorilla Researcher and Defender: The Darker Side of Wildlife Conservation

 

Dian Fossey reached a scientific epiphany no other researcher had attained—the trust of the gorilla families she studied, furthering scientific knowledge of gorillas and humankind’s evolutionary origins. Dian’s passion as a researcher was altered as she abandoned her research to save them. A closer look at her life reveals a troubled person whose entire life was dedicated to mountain gorillas.
