Wayne Pacelle to discuss human, animal bond
Hola Sonoma! Does the word "meow" bring anything to mind? That's right, kitten season has officially started here at Pets Lifeline.
Three adorable little ones were brought to us on Saturday. All three blue eyed beauties who are just to die for.
Not one to repeat myself, but last week I discussed the importance of spay/neuter and I just want to remind our wonderful Sonoma Valley about the resources available to them for low cost options. Give us a call if you have a cat or a dog in need of a spay/neuter services and if we don't have a clinic scheduled at the shelter, we will give you some resources.
By the time you read this, the county wide free feline spay day on April 16 will already be closed for registration, but call us now to find out what is available to you. Hats off to our not only our beloved local veterinarians, but vets all over the county are opening up their clinics in consolidated effort to deal with the cat overpopulation in our area. There are wonderful resources in our county to accommodate our animal loving public, so what are you waiting for?
How's your Saturday shaping up? Saturday, April 16, if you have 3 to 5 p.m. free, stop by the Sonoma Community Center where Readers' Book will be hosting Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of Humane Society of United States who will be reading excerpts from his new release "The Bond.'' A landmark work, "The Bond" is the passionate, insightful and comprehensive examination of our special connection to all creatures, written by one of America's most important champions of animal welfare. Pacelle unveils the deep links of the human-animal bond, as well as the conflicting impulses that have led us to betray this bond through widespread and systemic cruelty to animals. Tickets are $6 and will be available at the door and in advance at Pets Lifeline, Arroyo Veterinary Clinic and Readers' Books. Readers' Book is generously donating the proceeds of the event to Pets Lifeline and Sonoma Valley Dog.
Let me tell you, I have been having a blast cataloguing all the fabulous purses that have been donated by our friends and family for Tailwags and Handbags at Estate April 29.
