Fur Lovers Unite!

So, I’ve already told you the Walton County Commission Chairman is coming to our membership meeting on June 17. Let me tell you why that’s important.<br /><br />There has been no humane society in Walton County for a very long time. Unfortunately, our animal services have suffered because of the lack of attention. Here’s a…

An animal report

Thanks to those who came out to the McDaniel-Tichenor House pet show, and also our adoption this weekend at Boss Bros. Gorgeous weather both days, so maybe we’ve shrugged off the run of rain clouds we were under for awhile.<br /><br />Here some news – WAG will be compiling a “Walton Co. State of the…

Ahhh, digging in the fresh spring dirt! Is there anything more relaxing?<br /><br />I’ve been kinda preoccupied lately with things (see above) but wanted to offer a few WAG updates.<br /><br />Stop by the McDaniel-Tichenor House in Monroe this weekend, Sunday, May 4, to check out the fun pet show. There are always good crowds…

Flea Report

<div><div>Well, the fleas were hopping at our market this weekend! WAG early-risers got things cranked up at 8:30 am.

The Fleas Are Coming!

Countdown to the Fleas Market – one day and counting. Please, Mother Nature, be kind in your weather decisions.<br /><br />We’ve done a great job of collecting cool stuff. In fact, WAG members keep circling the goodies like vultures eyeing roadkill. But there’s no buying ahead of time – they’ll just have to get in…

Oops

Seems I was wrong. The Fleas and Dogs sale is April 19, not the 22nd. Remember – Saturday, April 19, from 10 am – 4 pm at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, 206 N. Broad St., in Monroe.<br /><br />So I goofed. Gimme a break – I’m a dog. We don’t have calendars!<br /><br />B.

We hit the road yet again.

Ready for another adoption event? Tractor Supply is having their anniverary celebration March 22 and WAG was invited to bring some animals down to showcase for potential adopters. Cross your paws that the weather is good. March in Georgia can be unpredictable.<br /><br /><a href=”http://bp1.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/R93_a9O_Y0I/AAAAAAAAADs/HN_Y-U8oAfI/s1600-h/10reasons1.jpg”><img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5178575985125057346″ style=”FLOAT: left; MARGIN: 0px 10px 10px 0px; CURSOR: hand”…

Popsicle Pups

<div><br /><br /><div>Temperatures in the mid 30’s. Cold, blustery winds. Rain mixed with snow flurries.

Spring is springing

We’re into March Madness! There has been a lot going on, so let me see if I can remember all of it.<br /><br />On February 18th WAG presented the Walton Co. Fire Department with 20 sets of pet oxygen masks, enough for each fire station in the county. The masks work much better for pets…
