Welcome

September/October 2018

HAL Friends and Supporters,

We have some new kittens who need to gain weight, get their shots and be spayed and neutered.  However, they will not be adoptable for another few weeks. Hunter is pictured below…solid grey.

Claudia Christiana “Christi” is available for adoption (Pictured)  She is currently upping her resume in the lobby cage at Port Royal Veterinary Hospital. She is very sweet and loving.

HAL Benefit  10/14-20

Mark your calendar for October 14-20.  Blackstone’s Cafe will be donating 10% of their gross revenues for the entire week. I encourage you to come to come for breakfast or lunch…Bring your family, friends, neighbors, or plan to host your clubs or meetings because the food is great!  Buy a raffle ticket(s). There are some fabulous PRIZES donated by Beaufort County merchants and Marine Corps Community Services.  All hosted by Blackstone’s Cafe.

Microchips

Micro-chip your pet now before he/she goes missing.  Be proactive…With one in three pets getting lost in their lifetime, ensure that your pet (dogs AND cats) is microchipped. There is a greater chance of a happy reunion if your lost pet is microchipped.  All HAL kitties are microchipped.

Microchipping is available through the Beaufort County Animal Shelter for a small fee.  If your pet is chipped, make sure the company has your current contact information.  This internet-based company will help rescuers find you without having to know which company made your chip –  Pet Microchip lookup.

Train your cat to walk on Leash

Did you know that it is the law in Beaufort County that dogs AND cats (Ordinance 14-33 Running at Large) must be on a leash if they are off your property?  Most people are used to seeing dogs on a leash but cats!  How is it possible to train a cat to walk on a leash? Here is a great article with some very specific tips on how to train your cat to walk on leash.  It is safer and healthier.

Finally…
Don’t forget to keep up-to-date on our HAL news and events via our “Facebook” page.   HAL is a fund of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry (CFL) and all donations are tax deductible.   Be sure to select “Humane Association of the Lowcountry Fund” from the drop down box. We are a small charity and sincerely appreciate your support.
