PLUMAS COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER 283-3673 In the years the volunteers have been working with the shelter dogs we have seen many old animals come into the facility. Some are lost -- dogs that may have gotten out of a yard and wandered into unfamiliar territory and their dutiful and loving owners will call the shelter and come right away to get the honored pet. But there are others who show up who have been dumped in rest areas, collars purposefully taken off so they can't be returned -- old dogs with hip problems, poor eyesight, lumps and obvious tumors who are just dis- carded like old trash. It is inconceivable to any of the volunteers how a loyal and devoted animal, like a dog, can be so ill thought of just when it needs care and love the most. By law, the county has to keep a stray animal for four working days to give the owner time to show up and claim him/her. Since the shelter is only open three days a week there is at least a 10-day lag time before any lost animal can be put up for adoption or euthanized. To end your life away from those you know (even if the care was minimal); to end it living in a cement kennel with no soft bed to sleep on; to receive a loving touch for only a few hours per day is a harsh reality. Older animals may present difficulties and may require special food or care, but they have probably devoted their whole life to waiting for you to come home; to getting that stick; to sitting by your side when you really needed a friend and someone to care. If you haven't noticed those attributes in your dog, you simply aren't looking hard enough and you are missing out on one of the most won- derful experiences in life -- unconditional love. One generous person sent in a contribution recently and on the back of the envelope was a sticker that read "Before receiving there must be giving." Please give to your animals -- give them respect, love, the basics of food and water and medical care, and you will receive and achieve the gift of true humanity. Currently at the Plumas County Animal Shelter we have three older dogs that really need homes. Bubba is a neutered male, sweet and lovable. He loves to go for walks and rides in the car and is always ready to flop over for a good belly rub. He weighs about 45 pounds, is a pit mix and is one of the nicest tempered dogs to come through the shelter doors. Bubba would make a wonder- ful companion. Lilly is a Rott mix spayed female who came to the shelter when her owner died. She is about 1'0 years old and a bit stiff in the joints, but she still loves company and attention. With the loss of her owner, the grief and the new surroundings Lilly had lost weight in the shelter but Friends now buys her special canned food to supplement the kibble and she is more interested in eating: The third elder in the shelter is a pudgy neutered male beagle named Henry. This senior guy is full of pep and loves to go on walks. He is still full of life, loves to eat and be around people. Come by, visit and seriously think about adopting one of these deserving animals. Bring some joy into your life and the life of these abandoned animals. See them on Friends will pay the adoption fee for these three dogs and they will be offered free to approved homes! Friends of the Plumas County Shelter Animals is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corpora- tion and all donations are tax-deductible. All monies donated go directly to the care and comfort of the shelter animals; no money goes toward salaries or ad- ministrative fees. Friends is not a county entity. Dona- tions can be sent to Friends, P.O. Box 182, Quincy, CA 95971. Thank you.
