Only 3 more weeks until the Masquerade party at the Bowery Station in Apalachicola.  Do you have you and your pets' costumes picked out?
This is going to be a great time for 2 legged and 4 legged animals alike.  We hope that all of you will plan to join us, with or without a costume, and help raise money for the Spay/Neuter voucher program and the Franklin County Humane Society.  
Entry fee for the costume contest is $10.00 and the winner will receive a portrait of their pet painted by local artist Jenny Odom!  If you don't want to dress up, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to participate.  There will be a wheel to spin for prizes, a trivia competition, silent auction, pet photos as well as beer and wine to purchase. 
Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 25th from 3-6 pm and join us at the BOWERY STATION for the first annual Pet Masquerade Party of Apalachicola.
We can't think of a more enjoyable way to spend a beautiful fall afternoon than in Apalachicola, listening to great bands playing great blues and spending some time with our homeless pets.
We will be participating in BLUES IN THE LOT with pets available for adoption.  There will be puppies, dogs, cats and kittens for you to enjoy while listening to music and sampling delicious BBQ.
So please join us by the Owl Cafe, Saturday, October 11 from noon until 6:00 and bring your dancin shoes!
Bosom Buddies
Most of you know that October is national Breast Cancer Awareness month when women are encouraged to schedule their annual mammograms.  However, did you know October is also National Adopt-a-Dog from a shelter month?
In light of this, the Franklin County Humane Society is offering women the opportunity to adopt a Bosom Buddy.  During the month of October, the adoption fee for our adult dogs will be reduced to only $75.00 and only $25.00 for our cats in celebration of breast health and the ongoing fight against breast cancer.
Let’s do everything we can to ensure the women of Franklin County and the homeless pets in Franklin County have the kind of care and support they deserve.

October is Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month

What Can An Adopted Dog Bring To Your Life?
There are as many responses to that question as there are dogs in this world! That’s why -- during Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month celebration in October -- we’re encouraging people to adopt a shelter dog and experience the joy of finding their own answers.
Are you looking for:
  • an exercise buddy?
  • a best friend and confidant for your child?
  • a dog you can train with to learn animal-assisted therapy?
  • a partner in agility competitions?
  • a constant companion for your favorite senior citizen?
  • a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work?
An adopted dog can be all these things -- and so much more!
Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality -- all waiting for a loving home. 
Find out what a shelter dog can bring to your life this October during Adopt-A-Dog Month!
The 2014 Franklin County Humane Society annual meeting is scheduled to be held on Saturday, November 8 at 10:30 a.m. at the Adoption Center.  There will be hotdogs, chips, drinks and tours of the shelter. 
You are encouraged to attend to ask questions and see how you might like to get involved with your Humane Society.

Sandy was brought to us in the Spring of 2013 at a year old.  She was a sweet, social girl and was adopted by someone in Hosford who wanted a small companion dog.
Two months ago we received a call from a couple that were passing through Hosford on their way to Pensacola and noticed a small dog close to the road. They stopped and asked the manager at the mini-mart if she knew who the dog belonged to.  The manager said the dog had been hanging around and following a homeless person but didn't know who the owner was.
The dog was wearing a Rabies Tag so the couple called to trace the number and it was registered to one of our dogs. We called the phone number on our records but the number had been disconnected.  The couple decided to leave the dog where they had found it as they needed to get back on the road.
We called the mini-mart in hopes Sandy was still there but she had gone.  We asked the manager to house her safely next time she came around, call us and we'd come and get her.  She never called.
A couple of weeks ago we received a call from a woman stating that she had found a dog in Hosford and had traced the Rabies tag number back to us as well.  We explained the situation and told her we would come and get Sandy but she offered to bring her to us.  And she did.
We don't know what happened to the original owner.  We don't know if Sandy got away or ran away. Poor little Sandy was somehow left to fend for herself.....but no longer!  Above is a picture of Sandy with her doting new mom. Sandy is being spoiled rotten in her new home and knows now that if she ever goes looking for her hearts desire again, she won't look any further than her own back yard.  Because if it isn't there, she never really lost it to begin with.
