Welcome

July/August 2018

HAL Friends and Supporters,

We have some new kittens who need to gain weight, get their shots and be spayed and neutered.
Meet Bernie (orange tabby) and Barbara Jean – the Southern Princess…they are too CUTE!  However, they will not be adoptable for another 10 week

If you are in need of a kitty fix and can’t make up your mind — TRY FOSTERING.  The Beaufort Country Animal Shelter (BCAS) desperately needs foster families. It is kitten season and they are inundated.  Please open your heart and home to some of these homeless kittens. Contact BCAS on 843-255-5010 prompt 1 for more information.

 

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.  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.
