I’ve been telling you about how great the folks in Middle Georgia are and how they’ve really come through for the animals. It just keeps getting better.
Mallory Jones got the ball rolling with his gift of $750 to Central Georgia CARES to save 10 animals slated for euthanasia. Those 10 animals already have been spayed or neutered and vaccinated thanks to Drs. Edsel Davis and Chris Grice at Northside-Wesleyan Animal Hospital. They’re now in their new homes and will be visited by Macon Animal Control to make sure they’re happy.
Then Tom Wagoner also donated $750 to CARES to save another 10 pound pals followed by Miss Carol Wheeler who donated $750 for another 10! Then a very sweet lady sponsored the adoption of four more! So through the kindness of others, 34 of my pound pals will be saved and become a part of loving families.
Now that we have funding for the adoption of 34 animals, we need to find families for the remaining 24 pound pals. So I just figured, since my 3rd birthday is coming up at the end of the month, I would ask CARES for an adoption party!
Never miss a local story.
That’s right! That’s my birthday wish -- for CARES to host an adoption party at Macon Animal Control located at 1010 Eleventh St. on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
And you know what else I want on my birthday? I want the rescue groups to join me! I’m inviting the rescue groups to bring their available babies for adoption to my party so they may be seen and adopted, too!
Mark your calendars for next Saturday at 10 a.m. at Macon Animal Control for my 3rd birthday party. Please plan to come, and if you can’t adopt a baby in your home, please bring someone who’s looking for a new companion because I have loads of perfect pound pals who would brighten anyone’s life.
Since I don’t need any gifts for myself -- well except maybe for some beef jerky -- feel free to bring supplies for my pound pals like food -- both dry and in the pop-top cans -- kitty litter, bleach, laundry detergent, puppy pads galore and warm, cushy blankets, comforters and sleeping pads. But by all means, please come! I’ll be there from 10 until 2.
The good news doesn’t end there, either! Remember I told you about the upcoming spay clinic Miss Susan Helton scheduled for February? Generous sponsors including Mr. Joe Allen have covered the cost of all the surgeries! So in essence, the spays/neuters and microchips will be done at no charge to pet parents!
What a pawsome time to be involved with animals in Macon! People really do care about animals in our town!
