Save the Date! Saturday, April 21, the North Eastern Washington Humane Society (NEWHS) is happy to bring back Furry Paws Wellness Day at Sety’s Ace Hardware in Chewelah. The veterinarian will be set up from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Bring in your dogs, cats, and ferrets for vaccines and worming. Washington state law now requires all dogs, cats, and ferrets to be vaccinated against rabies – a vaccine only available from a licensed veterinarian. Cats and ferrets should be in secure carriers, and dogs should be on leashes.
NEWHS is also looking for people who want to help “grow” this organization in Stevens County. Our group in now old enough to have a solid and committed core, but we are small in number. On our board, we have members from many walks of life, all dedicated to proper care of animals. If you are interested in finding out more about our goals, visit our website at http://www.newhumane.org.
We are also available to speak with organizations and clubs that would like to have more information. We can be reached at (509) 563-4040. NEWHS meets the third Monday of every month at the Fire Station in Springdale. Meetings start at 7 p.m. Please come check it out!
