Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, July 18, 2012 3B t00escues and adoptions; rely on assessments Q: How does your rescue and adoption process work? --Tanya M. Quincy A: Those are really two different questions but they both start with a tempera- ment assessment of the ani- mal, especially for a rescue dog. All the rescue groups in Plumas County support and promote a no-kill communi- ty for all adoptable pets. The temperament assessment provides valuable informa- tion on the dog's adoptabili- ty and on any areas that in- dicate a need for some be- havioral rehabilitation and/or treatment for a phys- ical ailment. No MORE HOMELESS PETS HIGH SIERRA ANIMAL RESCUE The assessment also pro- vides a starting point for what kind of family and home environment may be best for this particular ani- mal. The dog will likely get several more temperament assessments over the next few weeks/months depend- ing on need and how long the animal may be at the shelter. We've all heard that in re- al estate, the three most im- portant items are location, location, location. For a suc- cessful adoption, the three most important things are fit, fit, fit. There has to be a good fit between what the adoptive family is looking for and what kind of home environment will work for the dog. Some families will have a more detailed idea of what they are looking for and others may be more flexible but in either case, there has to be a good fit with the temperament, size, activity level, gender, etc. of the new dog. Any family interested in adopting from High Sierra Animal Rescue will fill out an application, either online or in person at the shelter or at an adoption event such as our Saturday Adoption Days at Petco in Reno. The application provides vital information about the adop- tive family, their home environment and what they are looking for in a new family member. High Sierra also maintains extensive files on every ani- mal, including an informa- tion sheet and inputs from staff and volunteers that pro- vide details about the ani- mal's behavior. This would include such things as how a dog walks on leash, how she is with other dogs or cats, her activity level, a sug- gested home environment, etc., all of which helps the prospective adopter learn more about the animal. Hopefully, this gives you an idea of how the rescue and adoption process works and some of the key ele- ments. We'll talk more about the adoption process in the coming months. High Sierra Animal Res- cue's mission is to rescue homeless, adoptable pets; provide them with the care they need until they can be placed into permanent, lov- ing homes; and improve the welfare of pets by raising public awareness of respon- sible pet ownership. For more information or with questions contact us at info@highsierraanimal or check our wehsite at highsierraanimal Upcoming event: The Lodge at Whitehawk Ranch Restaurant has scheduled Tuesday, July 31, for its "Keep it Local" dinner to benefit High Sierra Animal Rescue. Outside seating is available to those who would like to bring their dogs. Meet and greet is set for 5 p.m., with dinner at 6. For more details and to make reservations, call 836-4985. VITALS, from page 2B focused on continuing water- shed science education at each school. Mary's unique teaching ap- proach had her annually send individual letters to each in- coming student before the first day of school, from the fictitious "Lyle Crocodile." These letters encouraged her students to start reading and drew them and their guardians into lifelong learn- ing. An early musical lesson was, in her class, Louis Arm- strong's "It's a Wonderful World," accompanied by hand-signing the words and their interpretation. Mary is survived by her three sons; daughter-in-law Jess; husband, John; siblings; her mother, Marjorie Dovi; cousins, nieces and nephews; as well as the countless pupils of reading and skiing that live her legacy. A remembrance will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, July 21, on the stage at the gym at Quincy High School, immedi- ately followed by a potluck at Gansner Park in Quincy. Please bring desserts or sal- ads, chairs and blankets. In lieu of flowers, dona- tions of time and money could be forwarded to the Plumas Unified schools, Plumas County Museum, Feather River Land Trust, Johnsville Junior Ski Team, Plumas Ski Club, Plumas Arts or the Plumas-Eureka ski hill upgrade through Eastern Plumas Recreation District. Arrangements are under the direction of Fehrman Mortuary. Juanita (Nita) Ashcraft Juanita (Nita) Ashcraft passed away at home July 10, 2012, at 91 years of age. Nita was born in Amarillo, Texas, in 1921. She lived in Texas and Colorado before moving to Northern Califor- nia. She spent 10 years sell- ing real estate in Contra Cos- ta County prior to launching into her lengthy and quite impressive political career. She served as the Northern California chairperson for Ronald Reagan's gubernator- ial campaign, which led to several appointed positions, including a 10-year term as a member of the California State Personnel Board. She then went to Washington, D.C., after being appointed as the first woman assistant sec- retary of the Air Force, in charge of manpower and re- serve affairs, under Presi- dent Gerald Ford. After returning from Washington, D.C., she split her time between California and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, be- fore settling in Napa in the late '80s where she remained active in local politics. For the past five years she resided in Graeagle with her daughter and son-in-law. She was a world traveler, a voracious reader and collec- tor of antiques. She enjoyed live theater, fine dining and a great movie. She was always up for a game of cards or a trip to Reno to hit the slots. Nita's vast knowledge made her a great conversa- tionalist and she was always happy to lend an ear without judgment. Her positive out- look and great sense of hu- mor were ever-present in her smile. It was a privilege to know her and she will be greatly missed. She leaves behind her daughter Martha Hansen, son-in-law Bryan Hansen, stepdaughter Joy Madrid, six grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held July 28 in Graeagle. In lieu of flowers, a dona- tion can be made to Tahoe Forest Hospice, P.O. Box 60903, Truckee, CA 96160, in memory of Nita Ashcraft.
