Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 25th for the first annual Pet Masquerade party at the Bowery Station in Apalachicola from 3-6.  This will be a fun and fabulous fundraiser for the Franklin County Humane Society and the Spay/Neuter Voucher program.
The festivities will include a silent auction, prizes for best costumes, spin the wheel for prizes, trivia competition, and of course plenty of beer and wine.  Debi Jordan will be playing live and will MC the event.
So join us for a great party for a great cause!

We have white kitties available for adoption!  Yes, 3 white kittens and their beautiful mom. This family was brought to us from SGI when the babies were just born.  Mom and kittens were found outside by an old  boat where mama had just given birth.
Mom is very social and loving and very young.  Her kittens are growing and are in the weaning process. There is one male and 2 females still available and of course mom needs a home as well.
White kittens are rare and highly sought after so don't delay! Come meet our 3 little kittens and MOM.

You wouldn't know it by this picture but these 3 week old puppies almost didn't escape the same fate as their littermates.  Their 3 siblings succumbed to disease and infestation before the owners were advised to bring the remaining pups to the Humane Society for help.
Without going into horrid detail, suffice it to say the environment these pups were living in was atrocious.  Filthy doesn't begin to describe it so the fact that three made it out alive is amazing.
These three received life saving treatment upon arrival at the shelter and are now thriving, happy, healthy pups available for adoption.  
If you have ever wondered how your donation dollars are being spent, this is an example of the work your Humane Society is doing.  If you haven't donated to FCHS in the past, we ask that you consider supporting our efforts in saving the lives of the homeless pets in Franklin County.
Last spring a gentleman came to the shelter in search of his cat.  He was visiting from Mississippi and living in his RV in Carrabelle when his cat went missing.  He came to the shelter weekly but his cat was never brought here and he never showed back up at his RV.
Finally in June he decided to adopt a cat from us since he felt the chances of his cat returning or being found were slim to none.  He adopted a beautiful black kitten, similar to the one that had disappeared.  He packed up soon after and went back to Mississippi.
Last Friday we received a call from some people who had trapped an injured cat.  The cat had a collar on with a Rabies Tag and the cat had managed to get one of his front legs through the collar which of course  caused a nasty wound. They were able to cut the collar off the cat and call the veterinary clinic on the tag.  The veterinary clinic was located in Mississippi. While they were on their way to the shelter, we pulled the records on the man who had adopted the black kitten and sure enough, he was from Mississippi.  
When the cat arrived, we saw what bad condition he was in.  He was very thin, dehydrated and injured.  He needed medical care, fluids and food, all of which were provided. We called the veterinary clinic on the tag to verify the owner and it was one and the same.  We called the number listed but there was no answer so we left a message.
The following morning there was a message from the owner.  He was thrilled to find out his beloved cat had been found and said he would leave afterwork on Saturday night, drive from Mississippi to pick him up on Sunday and drive him home.  He was waiting when we pulled up Sunday morning.
Above is a picture of "Bobby" when he arrived.  Below is a picture of the reunion.  Oh Happy Day!
