The culmination of a long-awaited dream of the Humane Society of St. Lucie County has finally come, as the shelter opens its doors to a new, second facility, this one at 8890 NW Glades Cut-Off Road in Port St. Lucie.
Don’t miss out on the sponsorship opportunities now available, and sign up to be part of this popular event on Friday, Feb. 21 and Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 at Veterans Park and Riverwalk Center, 600 N. Indian River Drive. Last year, more than 6,000 people enjoyed the festivities, all proceeds of which benefit the Humane Society of St. Lucie County.
Keep the memory of the loss of a beloved pet alive with the purchase of a brick paver at the tax-deductible cost of $100 per brick. The pavers are also a wonderful way to honor a much-loved living animal or human, or to memorialize a beloved person whose life impacted your own.
If you are at least 18 years old, have a little free time and a lot of love to spare, you may just be the perfect puppy or dog foster person the Humane Society of St. Lucie County is seeking.
Thank you to all who came out for our July 20 yard sale and dog wash. A net total of $1,807 was raised from the event, and everyone who was there—dogs included—had a great time!.
As the temperature this summer rises, so does the chance of heat stroke in your animal. On an average summer day, the temperature inside of your car can reach an excruciating 160° in the sun. Even with your windows cracked and water in the car, your dog may be at risk for serious injury or even death. You may be surprised how long it takes for your car to become too hot. If you love your pet, leave him at home.
Don’t wait for the last minute to prepare both you and your pets for an emergency! We pulled together information that is a vital part of pre-emergency preparations for every pet owner:
As the photos from the event show, the house was packed with rootin’, tootin’ fun and friends as the community came out in full-force, packing Miss Kitty’s Silver Spur Saloon for the 9th Annual Fur Ball & Catsino Night on March 9 at the Pelican Yacht Club.
The volunteer opportunities are plentiful. You can make your own hours and even choose your location. The HSSLC’s cats and dogs awaiting adoption can be found in Petco of St. Lucie West seven days a week and at PetSmart in Tradition on weekends, and volunteers are needed to transport the animals from our Fort Pierce shelter to those locations, and to stay with the animals while the public considers them for adoption.
The Humane Society of St. Lucie County’s “Kindness Center” is now under construction on Glades Cut-Off Road in Port St. Lucie, and is expected to open its doors to the public in September 2013.
