Upcoming Events



You're invited...

to attend the upcoming meeting of the Humane Society on Monday, April 14, at 6:00 P.M. at the Clarion Inn (formerly the Holiday Inn). Dinner is not included, but may be purchased. Please join us!

 

Please check out the Craig Shelter dogs and cats needing good homes at www.petfinder.com or 

www.adoptapet.com. Research indicates people with pets live longer, healthier lives!

 

Unfortunately at the moment, the reduced cost spay-neuter program has been suspended, due to financial reasons.  The Humane Society's current Philanthropy Project committee is working on grants to keep the reduced-cost spay/neuter program funded. We are working very hard to reinstate that service for you.

 

The Shelter needs donations of mylar cat toys and also volunteers to cuddle the cats and walk the dogs. If you can help in this capacity, please contact Ann at the Craig Animal Shelter (Bear Creek Animal Hospital).

 



 

 

 

The Humane Society of Moffat County is a local non-profit organization. We are not affiliated with the national organization Humane Society of the United States. Any donations made to the national organization will not be received by the Humane Society of Moffat County.

 

 

 

 

Protecting Pets in Cold Weather

In cold weather, keep pets inside. When you take them out, stay with them. When you are cold enough to go back inside, your pets are, too. If you absolutely must leave them outside for a significant amount of time, make sure they have a warm, solid shelter against wind and snow. Provide thick bedding and non-frozen water. You can also wrap a towel around a hot water bottle to help keep them warm without burning their skin. Very young and older pets are more vulnerable to cold. Watch for signs of frostbite and be sure to towel off their paws when returning from a walk to remove snow and deicing chemicals.

Cats will curl up against anything to stay warm, including your car's engine. If your car is parked outside in cold weather, bang on the hood before starting your car to dislodge any small animals sheltering near the engine.

 The Love I left Behind

 

Before humans die, they write their last Will and Testament, give their home and all they have, to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I'd ask...

To a poor and lonely stray I'd give:

-My happy home.

-My bowl and cozy bed, soft pillows, and all my toys.

-The lap, which I loved so much.

-The hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice which spoke my name.

I'd Will to the sad, scared shelter dog, the place I had in my human's loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

So, when I die, please do not say, "I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand."

Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life had held no joy or hope and give MY place to him.

This is the only thing I can give...The love I left behind.
