Thanks to the generosity of Gray's Flower Garden things soon blossomed into a much larger venture. Grays' ex- tended its 50 percent off sale to the late-arriving Friends group and donated four maple ...................... PLUMA$ OUNTY ...................... trees so the group drove away ANIMAL SHELTER 283-3673 Saturday, Oct. 2, a crew of dedicated and hard workers met at the Plumas County animal shelter and began to create a vision: a visually friendly and inviting place to come and visit a dog or cat; a place to sit in the shade after a walk or sit peacefully with an anim while getting to know it better. The project was the brain- child of Friend member Sally Nichol, who convinced county officials that planting trees and bushes at the animal facility would be a really good idea for staff, volunteers and animals. Nichol explained her plan to plant low-upkeep, broad-leaf trees and flowering bushes that will thrive in Quincy weather with little or no water after root systems are estab- lished. With reassurance from Friends that the group would be solely responsible for plant- ing and upkeep of the trees and bushes, the county gave the go-ahead and work began. The original plan was to purchase only three larger trees for the back dog yards and do small starts for the rest (twice) loaded with a total of 11 large trees to plant. Pet Country gave the Friends group a discount on the much needed compost to give the trees a healthy base of soil and donated some used fencing to help keep the dogs away from the newly planted trees. Friends had contacted Norm Lambert of Lambert Construc- tion asking for equipment help to dig the holes for the trees in the East Quincy hardpan soil and Norm offered the use of an excavator ff Buzz West, local soil and heavy equipment op- erator, would run it for them. Buzz donated his whole Saturday morning to running the machine and digging the 11 holes needed to give the trees a healthy start in their new home. To the rescue of the excited, but older Friends group came members of the Feather River College rodeo team: Jesse Segura, James Davis, Bill Hammerness, Justin Debraga and Devin and Jordon Nor- cutt. They worked together and planted all 11 of the maples and locust trees -- hard and long work. Athletic students, rodeo and football, have been some of the main laborers at the shelter when Friends has had heavy projects. These young people always arrive with a smile and great attitudes and dive into the work whole-heartedly. When the work is done many come back to volunteer to walk and run with the dogs. What great assets to our community. Friends of the Plumas County Animal Shelter is a nonprofit organization that strives to better the lives of the impounded animals. In the 18 months since the inception of the group they have achieved some huge and beneficial goals. The first ma- jor undertaking was getting two large play yards and three outdoor kennels for the dogs; currently a 200 square foot out- door cat enclosure is being constructed and now the land- scaping of the facility is under- way. Friends has also neutered all the male cats at the shelter and routinely neuters or spays dogs so they can be fostered or adopted more easily. No money donated to Friends goes to operating costs or salaries, and every dollar goes back to the county ani- mals. Tax-deductible dona- tions may be marled to P.O. Box 182, Quincy, CA 95971. Friends is grateful to all the people and groups mentioned in this article and to everyone else who has donated big and small to our group's efforts. All our goals and projects could not be achieved without the support of our wonderful com- munity. Thanks to everyone!
