A year ago, one happy family adopted dog Jasper (then known as "Yang") from Floyd County Humane Society. A year later, the family decided they (and Jasper) needed another floof-friend and adopted kitten Agatha (formerly Bamboo)!
Elizabeth, Agatha's new pet mom, writes, "Agatha thinks she’s large and in charge as demonstrated by her command of Jasper’s bed. Jasper gives up and goes to the couch with the saddest puppy dog eyes ever."
Agatha likes to play with Jasper's tail and they spend a fair amount of time chasing each other. The house reportedly "gets a little crazy at times" but Agatha and Jasper "are becoming closer every day."
Check out the photos and watch Jasper and Agatha get to know each other in this cute "Happy Tails" video!
Fabulous opportunity in Roanoke this weekend!!
Angels of Assisi Holding First Low-Cost Pet Health Fair; Keeping People with Their Pets!
Roanoke, VA - Angels of Assisi is holding their first Pet Health Fair this Saturday, April 23rd, from 10 am-2 pm at the Berglund Center at 710 Williamson Road, Roanoke, VA 24016.
Angels of Assisi will offer a variety of low-cost services at the Pet Health Fair, including vaccinations, microchips, nail trims, heart-worm tests, and most importantly, the ability to treat sick pets. Do you have a pet in need of care? Do not miss out on this opportunity! Animals will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. No appointments are necessary.
“The goal of the Pet Health Fair is to increase accessibility to veterinary care,” said Dayna Reynolds, Director of Community Engagement at Angels of Assisi, “ By doing so, we hope to keep people with their pets and help pets live healthier, happier lives.”
In addition to low-cost veterinary care, the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection will also be handing out free pet food to pet owners facing difficulty feeding their pets. The Pet Health Fair will feature several different vendors, including Bradley Free Clinic, the YMCA, Family Services of Roanoke Valley, and Oakey’s Pet Funeral Home and Crematory.
If you have any questions about the Pet Health Fair, please contact Dayna Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have a barn or a similar outdoor building? If so, you may want to consider adopting one (or more!) of our many barn cats looking for a home.
Barn cats are cats that don't feel comfortable around humans, whether it be because they are feral or for other reasons. They are considerably easier to take care of than your average house-cat, needing only a permanent outdoor shelter, food, and water for them to eat and drink. As stated earlier, they might never warm up to you, but they will probably keep the building they're living in free of rodents and other small, invasive creatures.
Because your barn cats won't have much social interaction, we recommend adopting two or more so they can do cat things together (they can also help keep each other company during the winter.) Some cats already have a companion they are comfortable with, which is also a good reason to adopt more than one. It won't be much more difficult to care for them because of how independent from humans they are.
Most of our barn cats are free, and they are spayed, neutered, and rabies vaccinated. If you're interested in giving one or more of them a home, please email us at email@example.com or call us at 540-745-7207 for more information.
February is national spay/neuter awareness month! If you have pets that have not been spayed/neutered yet, or even if you just want to help some stray cats or dogs that you've seen hanging around, this month is a great time to do it. Tight on cash? No worries! We have low-cost (or even FREE for strays) options available for you and your pets.
We've also been told that the Montgomery Floyd Regional Library is planning on hosting some pet health awareness events in the near future, but that's all we know right now. Be sure to check out their website to see when more information is available!
If you'd like more information on our spay/neuter options, please call us at 540-745-7207 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
