KITTEN SEASON HAS ARRIVED: HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Kittens have a much better chance of surviving with their mother's milk and care. If you find a kitten or kittens, be sure they are orphans before attempting to rescue them. 🙂

Due to the potential severe weather that is expected from Hurricane Irma, our facility will be closed Monday, September 11, 2017. Normal operational hours are anticipated to resume Tuesday, September 12, 2017.

09/07/2017

Let's all hope for the best but prepare for the worst with Hurricane Irma heading in our general direction. It's best to have a weeks supply of food and water but here are a few other reminders:

*Do you have flash lights and plenty of batteries?
*Did you fill your gas tanks for vehicles and generators?
*Did you fill all necessary prescriptions?
*Do you have a manual can opener?
*Do you have a tub to fill with water to flush with if you lose water?
*Do you have a supply of pet food? Include them in your water allowance.
*Do you have enough diapers and formula?
*Do you have charcoal/propane for your grill?
*Do you have cash in case power is out long term and it becomes a cash only world for a bit?
*Did you lower your pool water to prevent flooding?
*Did you fully charge your devices (if cell towers go out you'll be incommunicado but that music you've downloaded may bring you comfort)?
*Do you have your important documents in a safe, watertight place? (Birth certificates, deed, homeowners or rental insurance policy, passports, automobile paperwork) *Do every bit of laundry beforehand.
*A stocked freezer holds cold longer than a near empty one. Fill it with bags of ice or water bottles.
*Do your loved ones know your plan?
*Do you have paper products: paper plates, plastic utensils, toilet paper, paper towels?

Please don't wait, as many places are already running out of materials.
