If you are Looking to adopt a guinea pig from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Animal Protection and Control Shelter, you’ll have to wait until next week to fill that cage.

The shelter has had a run on guinea pigs for the past two months. About 20 have been adopted, spokeswoman Melissa D. Knicely told the Charlotte Observer. A mother guinea pig and her babies are being housed in a shelter, but they are not yet ready for adoption, she said.

Sometimes one or two guinea pigs arrive over a period of two to four months because their owners are moving, or a child is no longer caring for them, or they have been removed from a home due to an expulsion or voluntary abandonment, Julia Conner, the shelter’s humane education manager, said.

AC&C CMPD Guinea Pigs
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Animal Care and Control Shelter has had a run on guinea pigs for the past two months. Six of them should be available soon. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Animal Care and Control

The shelter occasionally takes in multiple guinea pigs in a day or week, usually because a male and female were housed together and had too many babies for the owners to care for, Conner said.

“It’s really very random when they arrive, but they come regularly enough that publicity of their adoptability is significant,” she said.

Unlike dogs and cats, guinea pigs and other small animals have “fairly large space” at the shelter, so capacity isn’t an issue, Knicely said.

When large numbers of guinea pigs are brought in, the shelter posts their photos on its “ASAP” Facebook page, Conner said.

“It helps a lot,” she said. “We do the same with rabbits.”

The time from Facebook posting to adoption can vary, according to Conner.

“Usually we release the little pets mid-week and sometimes they will be gone on the weekend,” she said. “When we’re really full with them I’ll do a live on Facebook or Instagram and they’ll be gone the following weekend. I think the longest pig we had was about three weeks before he was adopted.

Six guinea pigs and two rabbits will be available over the next week, according to Conner.

How about a bearded dragon?

Conner said there are many unique animals housed at the shelter at any given time, including a bearded dragon and a rooster that are currently available for adoption.

“If you see him on a farm, we passed him here,” she said. “If you see small pets being sold in stores, we brought them here.”

Horses, sheep, goats, cattle (on rare occasions), pigs, chickens, mice, hamsters, rats, ferrets, snakes, fish, birds of all kinds, other lizards and gerbils have all passed through the shelter’s doors, according to Conner.

Some of the animals arrive as lost pets, particularly when someone mistakenly releases a bird or rabbit “into the wild” thinking it can survive on its own, Conner said. A person usually finds these animals and brings them back, she said.

On very rare occasions, animals will be found outside veterinary offices, pet stores or even outside our main doors as abandoned, Conner said.

Animals are available for adoption at the shelter at 8315 Byrum Drive from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday or 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Adoption fees vary by animal type, but guinea pigs are $5 each, rabbits $58, and dogs and cats $30.

Whimsical Animal Portraits Raises Funds and Awareness for Local Animal Shelter | arts and culture https://aubergeetfermeauberge.com/whimsical-animal-portraits-raises-funds-and-awareness-for-local-animal-shelter-arts-and-culture/ Wed, 18 May 2022 20:39:00 +0000 https://aubergeetfermeauberge.com/whimsical-animal-portraits-raises-funds-and-awareness-for-local-animal-shelter-arts-and-culture/ BRATTLEBORO — Eight-year-old Lina DeAngelis has five pets at home — two cats, two dogs and a rabbit, plus a guinea pig at her grandmother’s.

BRATTLEBORO — Eight-year-old Lina DeAngelis has five pets at home — two cats, two dogs and a rabbit, plus a guinea pig at her grandmother’s. So she’s no stranger to what’s going on in animal care.

That’s why, after raising money for the Windham County Humane Society through curricular and extracurricular activities, she wanted to do more for the organization.

The Academy School third-grader drew animal portraits for $15 each to raise money for the shelter. So far she has raised $275 and now has four portraits on order, which will cost an additional $60.

She draws on 5″ x 7″ canvases with artist-grade markers. The brightly colored designs have a cartoonish charm, whimsically incorporating aspects of animal life (and their humans). Lina said she asks her customers for information such as their favorite color and their pets’ favorite toys or blankets. A portrait shows a rock star cat with a guitar, because the human is a musician. In another image, a dog named Paris is drawn in front of the Eiffel Tower. And in another, a dog no longer with us is depicted as an angel, along with a favorite toy sheep, also an angel.

“It’s different than selling raffle tickets or something like that. She really brings her personal touch,” said Lina’s mother, Amity DeAngelis. “She’s really trying to make it somehow relate to the life of the owner, or the life of the animal, and make it more personal that way.”

Amity’s parents, Sue and Jeremy Aldridge, are both artists, and when caring for their granddaughter, art is a big part of their work.

“It’s kind of hard not to get into drawing when they have 10 million art supplies in their house,” Lina said.

Lina already has an artist’s perfectionism — sharing her designs with Vermont News & Media recently, she noted that she wishes some details came out differently.

“She works more on animal portraits than on her drawings for fun,” her mother said. “And it’s always exciting to go and deposit the money at the Humane Society.”

Maya Richmond, executive director of the Windham County Humane Society, said as a locally funded charity, it means a lot when someone hosts a special fundraiser or uses their talents to benefit the organization.

“It helps in a number of ways,” Richmond said. “It generates money to feed the animals and take care of them. But it also creates public awareness and eventually reaches people we couldn’t reach ourselves. So I really think it’s phenomenal. I appreciate everything she does.

Richmond said the shelter not only accommodates animals and prepares them for adoption, but also offers veterinary services for pet owners in financial difficulty.

“So each of these departments relies on donations,” she said.

Although Richmond has yet to meet Lina in person, she is a fan of her work.

“I saw her working,” she says. “The work was magnificent.”

When the end came, it was a blessing. My dear friend and the guy who hired me at the Vermont newspaper, Bill P., died in his bed with his family around him some time ago.

About five years ago he started showing signs of dementia and ended up with Alzheimer’s, but recently developed a large blood clot in his leg which was painful and problematic. His doctors did not know if he would survive the operation.

The family debated the matter and wisely decided to forgo the operation and surround him with palliative care at their beloved hillside home in Vermont, overlooking the pretty village of Adamant.

According to his family, he was asleep, then woke up and waved his arms frantically, then lay back down to exhale quietly. We assume he had a stroke.

He was a fiercely mumbling Alabama boy who found his way to Vermont and newspaper writing, first at the Rutland Herald and then at the Barre-Montpelier Times-Argus, where he ran the room. of writing and against all odds, he brought me on board as his first new recruit. . I had no newspaper experience, I was a former Navy officer whose most recent job was various ski-bum jobs at Sugarbush Ski Resort. (It was the pre-recovery period of my life.)

All I remember telling Bill was that I wanted to be a journalist, that I could write, and that I had a new Pentax 35mm camera that I was pretty good with. I had always intended to ask Bill what prompted him to hire me, but I never did. And now I’ll never know.

I was at the Argus for six years, but that seems longer to me. Was Bill the biggest publisher in Vermont? No, but he was pretty good. His greatest gift was his personality, which drew people to his side with a mixture of humor, frankness and common sense. You naturally wanted to spend time at Bill’s hillside farm and help out with chores, which most often consisted of bringing in the hay each summer.

Bill and Ruth, his wife, have had animals over the years: horses, a cow or two, sheep, pigs and always a few cold-hearted dogs. But farming was steeped in amateurism. They knew what they were doing – or what needed to be done – but they never felt like they were fully aware of the situation.

That’s what made it fun. Most of the haymaking operation – cutting, tedding, raking, pressing, piling – took place in what seemed like a slow-motion agrarian room.

Budweiser six-packs from the village’s Adamant Co-op have fueled the haymaking work, and I’m sure there are several six-packs that have been stuck for years in the fields in long-forgotten hiding places.

Last summer, to my great relief and satisfaction, we visited Bill before the blood clot issues. He was silent and no longer himself, but looked much the same. Back in the days of the salad, he would have held court, typically raising an eyebrow to make a sarcastic point. I don’t think he said a word.

Surprisingly, he had been working on a novel, a Vermont newspaper article, of course, and managed to finish it before he started losing his mind. It’s well done fiction, and although he didn’t say a word during the visit, he listed my copy of his novel with a note, which now seems worthless.

He wanted me to tell him what worked and what didn’t. I decided to write him a real letter with my thoughts (mostly praise), but at the time I sent it, Ruth couldn’t tell if he understood when she read it aloud.

Bill and Ruth have three children and an adopted Canadian Indian, Chrissie, who had been absent from the scene for decades. She had returned when she learned of Bill’s condition. Bill and Ruth’s children all live in the Adamant area and they are very close knit and do not hold any ceremonies including burial.

Molly, the oldest and most inscrutable, piloted a small excavator to dig a grave on the hill behind the farm with a view of the beaver dam in the village. It was to be a so-called green burial, without the intervention of an undertaker.

I was told that the casket contained personal items placed next to Bill. Two were, to me, remarkable and a bit heartbreaking: his novel and an old typewriter. I’m sure it was Bill’s idea.

Molly moved some rocks to mark the grave. And that was the end of Bill, a good boy, a dear friend and a hay magician.

Good leads, partner.

Hey, I’m Raja, a 13 year old torbie from VHS. My fur is luxurious and my coloring is unique. All I know is roll over, look cute and have pets. It’s good, though! At my age, I deserved it. When I got to VHS I was so scared…all I could do was cower in the corner of my enclosure. However, it didn’t take long for me to start showing my sweet, silly personality. I don’t care much for other pets and would rather be the reigning queen in my new home. Until May 15, my adoption fee is only $25.

Ben offered two kinds of lemonade including lavender – Miller family photo

A 9-year-old boy walked into his local animal shelter with a large plastic bag full of cash, handing over all the profits he collected to a lemonade stand.

Ben Miller from Boise, Idaho raised a whopping $1,150 in one weekend.

It was his third fundraiser for a lemonade stand since 2019, a year he visited the Idaho Humane Society with his grandmother and noticed that some of the cats had no toys.

So far, he has donated a grand total of $1,950 to support the cats he loves so much.

His mother helped him create an event on Facebook, which attracted people from all over the valley. People also sent money without even visiting for a drink.

“It was such a fun day meeting so many great people and their pets. We had a car full of people pull over saying they just heard about it on the radio,” Amy Miller posted on Facebook. And the highlight of the day was the visit of Ben’s teacher.

Ben says he has no plans to stop his charity work for the shelter, which makes his mother beam, although she says he’s always had a big heart. “It really blew my mind.”

METHUEN – A one-eyed llama named Hyacinth is among nearly 200 newly homeless animals who have arrived at the MSPCA from Nevins Farm in the past four weeks alone.

The mass handover of horses, goats and other farm animals is largely due to law enforcement investigations into negligence claims and voluntary handovers from overwhelmed farm animal owners, officials say. refuge.

“To date, Nevins Farm is home to over 220 horses, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks and other farm animals, a population that has increased by more than 90% in the past two months alone,” the manager said. MSCPA-Angell Mike Keiley Adoption Center and Programs.

Hyacinth is only the fifth lama to join the MSPCA in 20 years. She was returned on April 6 when her former owner could no longer care for her.

A veterinary team from the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University removed a damaged eye and the 10-year-old girl traveled to Methuen Farm shortly afterwards.

The operation took place on April 7 and cost more than $5,000, officials said. Donors are being sought to help defray the costs.

According to Keiley, the ideal adopter in this case is anyone with llama experience and time to spend with a social animal. An existing herd of compatible animals that she could join is a plus.

“In her old home, she had goat companions that she was very fond of,” Keiley said.
