The following is a note I received from one of the volunteers at Parker Animal Shelter:
“A good news story for you, we just live trapped a female chihuahua mix in the Walmart parking lot. She had been living in the back of Walmart since July after being thrown out of a car. Walmart employees were feeding her dog biscuits and water but were unable to catch her. After we captured the little girl we realized she is pregnant. She is now at the shelter, gave her a big can of wet food when we got back to the shelter. She has a warm bed and now we wait for the puppies. I sat with her before I left the shelter and she is very scared but loving, she sits in your lap and will lick you to death. She gets a bath today and more treats. After we trapped her I went in to Walmart and told a couple employees, they were so happy that one of them started crying. It was very stressful for them because they felt they could not keep her safe from the elements and predators.”
These are the good news stories that we want people to know. Staff and volunteers are committed to doing the right thing.
A garage sale will be held on Friday, November 8th and Saturday, November 9th at 2051 Holly Ave in Lake Havasu (cross streets are Kiowa and San Juan). Signs will be posted. The sale is for the Parker Animal Shelter to help build a much needed room for baby kittens and abandoned cats until they are adopted. 100% of the sales will go towards the cost of the new room, as well as spray/neuter fees. The construction will cost about $1200.00 and the labor for building is being donated by a few Parker residents. The garage sale will help fund the material cost. Every cent will go towards the building and the animals. Not a cent goes to wages or benefits.
Great story and an excellent cause. We’ll add the garage sale to our calendar of events! Thanks for passing that along.
