Wow! The bark in the park was swell
Mousie is an adorable two year old gray striped tabby cat with beautiful green eyes. She came to CAPS from a household of 11 cats after her death. Originally it was a wildcat, which we know because its left ear is tilted. She is very shy but has befriended her boyfriend BamBam. She will need patience and love to win her over. Are you the soul mate she is looking for?
I may be as old as dirt, but I may have hobbled a bit. And guess who received a Medal of Honor. However, my parents are another story; talk about slowness. Anyway, we had a great time meeting and greeting everyone.
It is always a pleasure to witness the connection between the person, the dog and the community. Everyone here loves dogs and cares about animal welfare. They show it through the commitment they make to their pets and the animal community.
Speaking of commitment, we would like to thank the following companies for sponsoring our event: Bassham Furniture, Camacho Auto Sales, CC Communications, Fallon Welding, Family Pet Connection, Hoof Beats Gates & Corrals, Lahontan Valley Veterinary Clinic, Ott’s Farm Equipment , Sanford Ranch, Speedway Market, Three Happy Hounds and Torvik Veterinary Services.
As always, Bark in the Park expands the horizons of what’s available for pet care. I had a great bath and a peppermint scent. Of course, CAPS would not be possible without the volunteers, community support, kennel workers and our directors. We salute people who are willing to volunteer their time, resources, and effort to help maintain our kill shelter.
Know that anything you can do or have done to help CAPS is a step in the right direction. To quote Mahatma Gandhi, “The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Bark in the Park proves that we don’t just talk, we literally walk.
