Volunteers are needed to help trap stray community cats to be neutered. You will be dropped off and helped to set up a humane trap. All cats trapped will be taken to the vet for a spay/neuter and vaccinations then released in the same area. You will need to volunteer for 2-3 hours during the morning hours.

Donate to Sunny’s Fund

Sunny Bunny crossed the Rainbow Bridge today.

Sunny was adopted in March but came back to the Animal Shelter in late May. Since then she has been living with shelter mom Janette, big bro Mac, and idiot brother Bobb Catt. :) She worked a full shift at the Animal Shelter 5 days a week, and was a bed hog each and every night at home. She helped raise money for needy animals at the HSMV Dawg Days of Summer BBQ by working the “Kissing Booth” with mom Janette and brother Big Mac. Sunny’s little body finally wore out, she passed in my arms. Thank you all for loving her, asking about her, and contributing to her medical care.  Please continue contributing to “Sunny’s Fund” through the HSMV. This money will go to other animals in critical medical need.
Sunny Bunny, you were my “good widdle dirl….”, I will miss you for a very long time. Wait with big sis Micki til Mac and I get there.  Animal Shelter mom Janette posting October 10, 2016…
