November - A Time for Thankfulness


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 sixty or seventy furry friends who at any given time reside at the shelter, we also recognize that once again we’ve had much for which to be thankful throughout 2015.

We acknowledge all our friends and supporters, from our Keepers of the Kennels and Keepers of the Kitties, as well as individual volunteers and families to local businesses and towns. 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.

An Evening for Animals

Musical Harvest III

The Memphremagog Art Center (MAC) on Main St., Newport, VT is holding an event on Friday, June 5 at 6:30 PM. Part of the event includes a reading and signing by Author Catherine Holm from the book she has written with other writers, Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes.

During the month of June, our shelter will receive a small donation from the sale of the book, Rescued. The book is available at MAC and is also available on Amazon. Remember, when ordering from Amazon, use the site Amazonsmile.com, and select Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter as the non-profit of your choice!

While any donations received from the sale of this book might be small, using Amazonsmile helps a bit more. And for all our furry friends at the shelter, every little bit adds up and helps pay for food, supplies, and medical expenses. Thanks in advance for supporting Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter!



Holiday Safety for Pets!

Tips for a Happy, Healthy and Safe Holiday Season for Our 4- Legged Family Members

Everyone at Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter wants the holidays to be a happy time for you and your pet, and not a time for an emergency visit to your veterinarian. The food and decorations that make the holidays so much fun for us can sometimes be hazardous for our pets. We want you to be aware of some of these hazards so that you can plan accordingly and prevent any potential problems. When in doubt, common sense is always a good strategy!

July 12th, 2014 Volunteers


Sincere Thank You to All July 12th Volunteers!

The staff and board of Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter are extending a hearty THANK YOU to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make such wonderful improvements at the facility on Saturday, July 12. So much was accomplished that it’s a challenge to list everything – from painting walls and cupboards, to replacing screens in many windows, repairing dog yards and filling in around the shelter with pea stone, replacing cables on doors in the dog kennels, and the list goes on! 

A big THANK YOU also to the organizations that partnered together to support this event – Greater Good Organization and Pedigree Dog Food for their Shelter Renovation Project Grant and Animal Lifeline which provided three builders who drove here from other states to lead the projects.

We acknowledge that on such a beautiful summer Saturday, everyone had other options, and perhaps more enjoyable ones. Yet you all decided to spend a few hours or all day working to make the shelter a better place for our furry friends – all the dogs and cats that call the shelter their home for now. For this we are extremely appreciative!

THANK YOU to you all!
