Just One Left in Current ‘Countdown’ at Monroe County Animal Control

Just One Left in Current ‘Countdown’ at Monroe County Animal Control

Thanks to networking among rescuers and adopters helping to save the day, all but one dog is now off the Monroe County Animal Control euthanasia list for Tuesday, Feb. 12.

As of Thursday, there were three, but two now have adoption holds. That means chances are good that they have new homes, but that happy outcome is far from certain. Until the dog goes out the front door to its new life, it remains listed on the euthanasia list.

Rojo is the only dog on "the list" for euthanasia this coming Tuesday who does not have a rescue or potential adopter lined up.

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Today is my first day in the office for 2013. I intentionally took time off over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays to step back from work, enjoy my family and clear my head. Now I’m back and ready to hit the ground running! How about you?

 

In the past I’ve never been much of a believer in writing down my goals or making them for that matter. It all seemed a little woo-woo and out there. However in 2012 I worked with a wonderful organizer and business coach Paris Love (www.parisloveinstitute.com) who convinced me of the importance of setting goals.

New Year Begins on Sour Note for Pets in Need

New Year Begins on Sour Note for Pets in Need

There is an old cliche: No good deed goes unpunished. When area residents try to do the right thing by helping a lost, injured or distressed animal, that old cliche can become all too true.

In recent months, several dogs and cats have been helped by Good Samaritans who reached out instinctively to help. For them, the priority is to handle the immediate need, and worry about the rest later.

Several area animals are in need of broader assistance from the public, however. They were taken in off busy streets, found wandering and lost in the neighborhood, injured in accidents or are simply excess baggage for an uncaring family.
