Shelter groundbreaking will occur in late May!

After more than three years of “encouragement” from LASS, Lancaster County will break ground around the end of May for the new $3 million animal shelter on Pageland Highway. The groundbreaking, originally scheduled for early April, was postponed so that a temporary access road can be constructed for the groundbreaking ceremony. We’ll keep you posted on the exact date when one is announced. The new facility will be a huge improvement over the current shelter, with greater holding capacity and a clean, bright environment for shelter animals and the people who care for them.

 Lancaster County’s new adoption trailer is due to arrive this Thursday and LASS will hold our first mobile adoption event Saturday, March 30thfrom10:00-2:00in the Petco parking lot in Carolina Pavilion across Hwy 521 from Sun City.

Update on Peggy the Cat

There is a special place in heaven for those who adopt animals with special needs. Thanks to LASS members Nadine Day and Lynn Kotula, sweet Peggy the cat now has had her surgery and is ready for a forever home. She offers her perfect heart in a slightly less-than-perfect body. Peggy has adapted beautifully to being minus a left front leg. She doesn’t feel sorry for herself or compare her body to other cats. She jumps on beds and plays happily with her toy mouse. Peggy can snuggle just fine and can purr and rub and love you unconditionally…what more do you need from a cat? Peggy has a shiny black coat, big green eyes, is spayed, and is 2-3 years old. A lovable, affectionate kitty. Please call Lynn Kotula at 406-546-8164 to meet Peggy.
