    The Humane Society will take the fun activities of Paws in the Park and begin a new tradition. A Pet Celebration and Open House will take place on Sunday September 21st from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Society Shelter at 212 Elm Street. We have a beautiful view of the river and a large parking lot which will be transformed into a fun day for all. This will give our friends, alumni, and supporters a chance to visit, show off their pets, and enjoy an afternoon with their dogs. Our cat photo contest offers cat lovers the chance to show off their photography skills and their feline friends. A canine costume contest and doggie games will highlight the fun. There will be music, food, and games for the kids. The Cinco C’s Alpacas from Port Allegany will highlight the event. A Blessing of the Animals will be officiated by Reverend Dan Wolboldt of the Interfaith Chapel.

    The 2008 Dad's Pet Care Golf Scramble was a great success! Thanks to Blueberry Golf Club, Dad's Pet Care, Karen Sobkowski, sign sponsors, and players. Hope to see you next year!

    HELP WANTED Volunteering is key to any community organization. It is also the basis for an impressive resume for a high school student thinking of college. Employers look favorably on those who give of their time for others. Retired persons who would like to do “something they have always wanted to do”, or just simply need something to do, are also welcome. We have a myriad of opportunities and need those willing to give of their time to help us help the animals. Enhance your resume by volunteering at the Humane Society!

    Gift Giving- Remembering the Warren County Humane Society in your will, life insurance policies, or charitable trust is an excellent way to help provide care and protection for needy animals in the future. You can name The Warren County Humane Society as a direct beneficiary of special assets, a portion of your estate, or as a contingent beneficiary to receive those assets originally designated for loved ones in the event that they do not survive you. Your gift enables you to provide comfort, safety, health and compassion for animals long after you are gone. A wonderful way to express your love for animals as part of your legacy to the world.

    Sheba is an awesome brindle colored Lab mix. A stray, about a year old, she is looking to be found by her forever family.

    Best Wishes Ginny Ginny Simmonsen has been volunteering for over 10 years. She has done just about everything one can do with helping with fundraising, advertising pets on the radio and TV and informing the media about the stray animals to help owners find their pets. Ginny was always there to help and give time. We are so privi- leged to have her be a part of our life. We will miss you Ginny. Stay warm in Maine.

    A PET’S TEN COMMANDMENTS 1. My life is likely to last

    10-15 years. Any sepa- ration from you is likely to be painful.

    2. Give me time to under- stand what you want of me.

    3. Place your trust in me. It’s crucial for my well-being.

    4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainments, but I have only you.

    5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speak- ing to me.

    6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will not forget it.

    7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, re- member that I could hurt you, and yet, I chose not to.

    8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncoop- erative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

    9. Please take care of me when I grow old, for you too will grow old.

    10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.
