"Spay" ghetti dinner to benefit Prairie’s Edge Humane Society spay/neuter programs

Spay-Day-photoPrairie’s Edge Humane Society will be holding a “Spay”ghetti Dinner on Thursday, November 17th, from 5:00-7:00 PM at the Northfield Eagles Club, 304 S. Water St., Northfield.   Funds raised at the “Spay”ghetti Dinner will be used to benefit the Community Outreach Spay/Neuter programs sponsored by Prairie’s Edge Humane Society.  Advanced tickets are $6 and can be purchased at Cannon Valley Veterinary Clinic and Countryside Animal Hospital and Kennels in Northfield or at the PEHS shelter in Faribault.  Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $7.  What a great deal!  All the spaghetti you can eat and you will be helping to fund some great programs!
 
Since our inception, Prairie’s Edge Humane Society has stressed the importance of spaying and neutering as the non-lethal solution to pet overpopulation.  We were the first animal shelter in Minnesota to require sterilization of all animals before adoption, and we offer unique programs to help pet owners spay and neuter their own animals.
 
PEHS currently sponsors two Community Outreach programs for spay/neuter surgeries.  A low cost program for income qualified families to spay/neuter their pets thru area veterinary clinics, as well as a low cost program to spay/neuter outdoor cats and “community” cats thru the Just Cause Four Paws Spay/Neuter Clinic held monthly at the PEHS shelter.  Both of these programs are low cost surgery programs which are funded by grant money as well as donations.   Our current grant funding for these programs has been exhausted so until new grant funding is available we are hosting the “Spay”ghetti Dinner in an effort to raise funds to continue these important community outreach programs.
 
Please join us!  Your donation of $7 (or $6 in advance) will benefit the homeless animals at the PEHS shelter by preventing more litters of kittens and puppies! Here is the link to spay/neuter program info on our website.

New blog site for Countryside Animal Hospital & Kennels

Countryside Animal Hospital and Kennels

I’ve been working with veterinarian Dr. Rich Lorang and his wife Virginia Lorang to revamp the website for Countryside Animal Hospital & Kennels.  The vet clinic and newly acquired kennel operation serve the cities of Dundas and Northfield as well as the surrounding Rice County area.

Dr. Rich has begun to blog, along with staffer Jess Renderos.  You can also visit the Countryside Animal Hospital & Kennels Facebook page and follow Dr. Rich Lorang on Twitter.
