Humane society offers educational presentaiton

| 07/02/2011

(CNS): Continually concerned about the problems caused by irresponsible pet ownership, the Humane Society is now offering a free service for schools, which involves a full presentation educating young people on how to take proper care of their pets. When the John A Cumber Primary invited the charity into their school to learn more about pet care, students were given the opportunity to meet one of the Humane Society’s latest residents, which was recently found abandoned on Seven Mile Beach. The kids had a great time getting to know the dog, which is now looking for a permanent home.

As well as providing a shelter for abandoned animals, the Humane Society also operates a Spay and Neuter Clinic that gives financial assistance. The society said it continues to try to get the message out that there simply aren’t enough homes for all of the animals on island, so spaying and neutering pets is the only way to tackle the problem.

Call 949-1461 today to make an appointment for a pet or to request a presentation on responsible pet ownership.
