Hello Sonoma! Hallelujah for the rain! Let’s pray the weather report is accurate and we get more this weekend.
We are already trying to figure out ways for water conservation here at the shelter as we look toward a very dry summer. Whether it’s replacing our dog yard with an artificial lawn material or a graywater filtration system, we know we have to do something. We use a lot of water for our cleaning and the dog yard and don’t want to waste a drop. I fear we all need to get creative come the summer months.
Check out the Santa Rosa Cat Show this Saturday, Feb. 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 9, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds Main Pavilion, 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa. Put on by Call of the Wild Cat Fanciers, this is a family event and very affordable at $5 admission for adults, $3 for kids ages 6 to 13 and all kids under 5 free. This year’s theme is Mardi Gras.
This is an all-breed cat show and not only will there be every kind of cat breed imaginable, household cats are also welcome to enter. Pets Lifeline will be there with adoptable cats along with other animal rescues (Sonoma Humane, Forgotten Felines). Rain or shine, it’s a great thing to do with the kids. You can check out our website for more information at petslifeline.org or go to srcatshow.com.
For Valentine’s Day, we have our “Have a Heart, Adopt a Shelter Pet” special with all cats $14 from Feb. 10 to Feb. 21. We want all of our cats to find their special valentine.
We are so happy that our beloved Sandy and Hazel got adopted recently. Here’s a shout out to Andy and Rick for adopting Marley, a big fluffy adult tuxedo.
