2018 Dog-gone Good Yard Sale

2018 Dog-gone Good Yard Sale

IMG_2030On Friday morning, opening day of the Sixth Annual Dog-gone Good Yard Sale, we were met with a long line of shoppers waiting to see what was available! Thank you to all who donated and shopped;  this is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we certainly couldn’t have had such success without the assistance of so many generous people.   A huge thank you also to our wonderful dedicated volunteers who spent countless hours organizing and tagging all of the items and being on site for the sale days.

It turns out that this was our best year yet! The proceeds from this event enable NCCR to continue caring for the large number of dogs in need that enter the Rescue each year. Our heartfelt thank you for all who participated!

2018 Deli Dog Day

deli day 2018-1

 

Unlike last year when it rained, it was a beautiful, very warm weather day for Deli Day at the Old Corner Deli. Pepper was our ambassador and he was so calm and well mannered (Pepper has been adopted!).

A former NCCR resident stopped in to say hi. Taylor, renamed Abbey was adopted in May and her family thinks she’s great! We were happy to hear from others who talked with us that they had rescue dogs.

June Shelter News

Hello:

Well we haven’t reached the dog days of summer yet, but I’m sure they are around the corner!  The dogs definitely like cooler weather, and the volunteers enjoy spending outdoor time giving them walks and playing ball in the yards.  Currently, 126 dogs have found their new loving homes.  We thank you if you were one of those adoptive families or if you helped spread the word about the shelter.Word of mouth is one of the best (and least expensive!) advertising ways for us.  I’m adding our latest poster here for you to see most of the current batch of dogs that are available.   If you’d like me to send you a full size copy of the poster so that you can hang it up in your area, please email me back, and I will.   Things can change quickly; if you see one you’re interested in, don’t hesitate to call!

Ask any of the volunteers which dog is their favorite and you will get a different answer from each one. Some love the small dogs best like Zeus or Freddie, others love Sammi who has been with us the longest, some prefer ball players like Shelby, others like the couch potatoes such as Solomon. Each dog is special in its own way and is just waiting to find that perfect niche home to fit into.

We do have several events coming up. The Deli Dog Day at the Olde Corner Deli in Hartfield is this Friday June 29th from 11:30-1:30. One of the volunteers will be there with a shelter dog or two as well as information about the other available dogs, volunteer applications and dog sponsorship info. You can buy raffle tickets for a wonderful dog themed raffle basket that will be there or if you bring a donation of a new Nylabone, Kong toy or destructive-proof plush dog toy you will receive a free raffle ticket as a thank you!

One of our biggest fundraisers (and a way for you to either empty out your cupboards or refill them!) is the 6th Annual Dog-gone Good Yard Sale coming up July 27th and 28th from 9-4 at the shelter. Starting July 2nd the shelter will be taking donations for this big event. We are looking for good, saleable items, new or used, but NO electronics, mattresses, TV’s or clothing. Books, jewelry, furniture, kitchen items, holiday items, sports equipment, lawn and garden items, knick knacks, linens, records, CDs, DVDs etc. are all suggestions to donate. So declutter your attic, kitchen, garage or barn and think of donating to the dogs. Then look at all that empty space you created and stop back to the yard sale to fill in those empty spots!

As always, thank you for your support!

2018 Animal Rabies Immunization Clinics

2018 Animal Rabies Immunization Clinics

The Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Division of Public Health has announced the following free rabies vaccination clinics in Chautauqua County:

    + Thursday, July 26, 2018 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Town of Ellicott Highway Garage on East Mosher Street in Falconer, N.Y. This clinic is sponsored by the Town of Ellicott and Dr. Mary Fales will be the attending veterinarian.

    + Saturday, August 18, 2018 from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Town of Hanover Highway Department, 11966 Hanover Rd. in Silver Creek, N.Y. This clinic is sponsored by the Town of Hanover and the Village of Silver Creek. Dr. Katie Ball will be the attending veterinarian.

    + Thursday, August 23, 2018 from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Town of Ellington Highway Garage on East Main Street in Ellington, N.Y. This clinic is sponsored by the Town of Ellington and Dr. Mary Fales will be the attending veterinarian.

Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets three months of age and older. All pets must be on a leash or in a cage and pet owners should bring rabies vaccination records for each animal that will be receiving a shot to ensure proper and effective vaccination.

Rabies is a very serious disease of warm-blooded animals caused by a virus. Raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes are the common disease carriers. The virus is transmitted to humans and animals through saliva and it can enter the body from a bite, scratch, scrape or open cut. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system and can cause brain swelling and ultimately death within days of the onset of symptoms.
