PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE


October is "Adopt a Shelter Dog" Month. Volunteers are needed to sell SAVE A LIFE... ADOPT A PET magnets at the SCCL Lake House on September 26 from 10 am to 12:30 pm and October 3 from 9 to 11 am.

We also need volunteers to work at the LASS tables at the SCCL Arts and Craft Fair, September 8, 2018. Two hours of your time is all we need to assist people buying tickets for the raffle. The event is from 10 am to 2 pm at the Lodge.

Additionally, we need bakers to make dog biscuits to sell at the Craft Fair. We will supply the recipe, you supply the flour, eggs and peanut butter.

We have 158 members and at this time of the year, we need your help in raising money for the animals at the shelter. We have been able to buy medicines, take sick dogs and cats to Vets for treatment, transported cats and dogs to rescues where they will be adopted, purchased food, litter. Our spay and neuter program has had many dogs and cats neutered in order to try and control overpopulation. We have a small but dedicated foster group. ALL of this is because members step up and help in time of need. WONT YOU DO YOUR SHARE?

VOLUNTEER,  MAKE A DIFFERENCE!


Happy Tails!

Kitten Rescue - Way to go!

This weekend  (Sunday the 19th) 47 Lancaster kittens were taken to a rescue group in Maryland. Twenty-two of the kittens were from the shelter. LASS contributed $300 to help with the cost of drawing blood, testing and worming them. Two ladies from Lancaster rented the van and did the driving. If you would like to help in this wonderful rescue mission we need fosters for 10 days to 2 weeks before the next rescue drive.
