NEW VET HOSPITAL IN LINCOLN PARk
Located on Dix between Cicotte and Outer Drive, the new Dix Animal Hospital opened its doors in November 2005. They have specials on sterilizations and vaccinations. Boarding also available.
WE HAVE MICROCHIPS!
For only $15 per animal, pet owners can get a microchip implanted (plus a pre-paid registration) for their pet. Call 313-381-9020 after 6:00 pm for details. Our implantations are done at an area vet hospital. We purchased the chips and registrations from the AVID Microchip Company, one of the largest and most popular microchip companies in existence today.
We have microchipped MORE than 75 dogs and cats so far. These "teeny-weeny" chips have proven to be a tremendous help in reuniting lost pets with their owners (although they are NOT a substitute for ID tags.
The Friends of Lincoln Park Animals was instrumental in obtaining a microchip scanning device for the Lincoln Park Animal Shelter.
If you find an animal without ID tags, take it to your nearest vet hospital or animal shelter and they will gladly scan the animal to see if it has a microchip.
We hope that all animal control officers scan not only dogs, but cats, rabbits and ferrets too. Many of them have microchips as well.
Check with your local animal shelter to see if they have a scanner and if they use it. And, when the battery needs to be replaced, that this be done immediately. If it isn't, many animals miss the opportunity to be reunited with their owners.
If your shelter does NOT have a scanner, the AVID Company will provide one. AVID's number is 1-800-336-2843 or 1-909-371-7505.
L0W-COST VACCINATION CLINIC SEES 85 PETS ON MAY 21
Vets and vet techs from the VCA Allen Park Animal Hospital administered all types of vaccines and also tested animals for heartworm, feline leukemia and worms. The turnout was great!
Several owners purchased while-you-wait pet ID tags and every pet owner received complimentary bags of pet food.
We held two previous Pet Vaccination Clinics - Sept. 2004 and Feb. 2005. The February clinic, in conjunction with the VCA Allen Park Animal Hospital, saw more than 60 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens who were vaccinated, tested for heartworm, feline leukemia and worms. Many pet owners took advantage of while-you-wait pet ID tags. We also sold some microchip certificates and gave out low-cost spay and neuter certificates.
PIT BULL FORUM
Sometime this spring we will be holding a PIT BULL FORUM, probably in the community room of the LP Library. We will have a speaker on hand to give us information about this much-maligned breed. She will also hold a question and answer session. Stay tuned!
THE PERFECT PAIR: "MISTY" & MRS. JOHNSON
It has been a few months since Mrs. Elsie Johnson of Lincoln Park adopted "Misty" from Friends of Lincoln Park Animals. Her new furry companion is a gray domestic shorthair female cat who was called "Velco" while being fostered by our own Deb McFall. Mrs. Johnson said that her feline friend's affection and companionship is enjoyed alot and that her house no longer feels quiet and empty since "Misty" joined the family!
LOW-COST SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM
We are pleased that numerous people have been taking advantage of our ongoing "Paws and Claws" spay/neuter program, held in conjunction with the VCA Animal Hospital in Allen Park. Call 313-381-9020 after 6:00 pm for details.
Thanks to Dr. Marj Field and her wonderful and caring staff at VCA Animal Hospital in Allen Park for their incredible compassion, support, kindness and generosity in providing medical care for all of our rescued animals!
"Hi, my name is Champ and I was adopted by a wonderful family in St. Clair Shores, MI. Thanks to my foster parents, Bob & Linda, and thank you too, Petfinder!
PET FIRST AID & CPR PRESENTATION
This Red Cross-sponsored demonstration was held at our June 3 meeting at the Lincoln Park Library. We had a good-sized crowd on hand for Tim O'Donnell's presentation. Even group mascot "Marty" took part in one of the demonstrations! The very informative and animated demonstrations were accompanied by a generous supply of related handouts.
WE NEED MORE FOSTER HOMES
There are so many wonderful animals at the shelter, but because it is very small, their stay is very limited. Call 313-381-9020 after 6:00 PM on how to become a foster parent.
IF YOU'VE LOST YOUR ANIMAL
Keep checking with area animal shelters, leave your name & phone number at police dispatch desks, and place a LOST AD in the News-Herald. LOST & FOUND ADS ARE FREE! Ask the News-Herald Classified Staff to review FOUND ads in previous editions. Someone may have placed an ad saying they found your pet. Also, alert area veterinary hospitals including Affiliated Veterinary Hospital on Northline Rd. in Southgate. It's important to check the shelters in person because police dispatch desk personnel are not always aware what animals are in the shelter.
ONE OF OUR GOALS: The Friends of Lincoln Park Animals strives to offer educational programs as often as possible with the intent of inspiring and increasing awareness of animals and to honor their importance as pets.
IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR WHAT TYPES OF PROGRAMS YOU'D LIKE TO SEE OFFERED, PLEASE CONTACT 313-381-9020.
HISTORY OF WAR DOGS -- This presentation attracted several members, including many new faces. This very fascinating learning event featured video clips and a speaker who talked about the invaluable ways that dogs assisted during war time.
BITE PREVENTION -- This program featured Neva Sharlow
giving tips on how to avoid getting bit, safe ways to approach a strange dog, and other valuable pieces of information about dogs. Her Golden Retrievers, Sundance & Dodger were also on hand. This event was well-attended by both present and new group members.
PETS PHOTOGRAPHED WITH SANTA
A Doberman, Beagle, Labrador Retriever and Shih Tzu's were among some of the animals photographed with Santa last Christmas when Friends of Lincoln Park Animals held a PET PHOTOS WITH SANTA event. The dogs also received holiday bandanas and homemade treats. A BIG THANKS to all the group's volunteers for working so hard to make this such a fun event!
HAPPY TAILS: SHORTY & HIS NEW FAMILY
"Hi, I'm Shorty, an irresistible young Rat Terrier. Just ask the Keating Family of Taylor. They adopted me and we have so much fun together! Thanks to the Friends of Lincoln Park Animals for finding me such an awesome family!"
MORE HAPPY TAILS: SASSY and FRODO (and Bob)
"We adopted FRODO (on the left) and SASSY (on the right) in November. We can't describe how much happiness and joy our "pound puppies" have brought into our lives", said Cliff Mortimer of White Lake Twp. Cliff's wife, Jody, saw SASSY on Petfinder and fell in love with her. But, when they went to adopt her, they decided to take FRODO too. Their dog, BOB (in foreground)and SASSY and FRODO get along great. All three dogs are seniors and are well-taken care of by Cliff and Jody.
