November – Remembering to Give Thanks!

Another year is coming to a close soon, and while we at PMFAS are busy with the ongoing tasks of feeding, cleaning and caring for some fifty or sixty furry friends who at any given time reside at the shelter, we also recognize that once again we have much for which to be thankful.
We acknowledge all our friends and supporters, from our Keepers of the Kennels and Kitties, individual volunteers and families to local businesses and the towns we serve. Whether your support comes in the form of time, work, kind words or donations of many kinds, we definitely appreciate it all!

A big Thank You to the talented and generous folks at Northeast Kingdom Online (www.northeastkingdomonline.com) for their timely and detailed attention to our website. They work quietly and graciously behind the scenes making prompt and creative changes to the site, all of which help to promote our animals and enhance their adoptability.

We don’t want to overlook our adopters! We are especially grateful to this year’s adopters from near and far who made new forever homes for some 300 homeless dogs and cats from communities scattered throughout Orleans and Essex Counties.

Hearty and sincere thanks to all from Board, Staff, and all our furry friends at PMFAS!
thank you

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month

At animal shelters and rescue groups everywhere, there are loving, healthy senior pets looking for that one special home to cherish them for the rest of their life. They don’t ask for much: just a warm place to sleep, good meals and plenty of love. They often enjoy going for walks with you and they can cuddle and snuggle as well as any younger pet!

Adopting a senior pet really means that you’re adopting a furry friend that has years of experience in being a best friend.

During Adopt a Senior Pet Month, take the opportunity to get acquainted with the older pets available at Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter. Visit the shelter at www.petfinder.com or find us on Facebook at Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter.

Better yet…come and see our delightful family of furry friends at 4473 Barton Orleans Road in Orleans, VT! We look forward to seeing you soon!

With spring right around the corner, if you’re shopping Amazon to make some home and yard changes, remember to shop smile.amazon.com and enter Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter as the non-profit organization that you choose to support. No purchase is too small to help support all the dogs and cats that stay at the shelter while waiting to find their forever homes. This is a very easy way to show your support and donate toward the food, medications, vet care, and cleaning supplies needed at the shelter. Thanks in advance for your support in caring for over 300 dogs and cats each year!


National Pet Month!

52d1632c40b579111b4e3ea8f19283acDuring this month we celebrate the benefits that pets bring to people's lives - and hopefully of the benefits that humans bring to pets’ lives. The focus of National Pet Month is to promote the benefits of pet ownership and support pet adoption. It also helps to increase public awareness of services available from professionals who work with animals such as animal shelters, veterinarians, and pet behaviorists. At the same time, it can also help to raise awareness of the role, value and contribution to society of working companion animals. During the month of May, visit the Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter or a shelter near you to spend some time with the animals that are there looking for their own “furever” home. While you’re there, you may decide to volunteer on a regular basis or donate to help support the costs of these furry friends while they reside at the shelter.
