Animal Shelter Report 
Blessing of the animals this Saturday


“Mittens” is just one of the great shelter pets hoping to see you this Saturday, Oct. 6, for the annual Blessing of the Animals. The Rev. Richard Loop, vicar of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, will be blessing the shelter pets and pets from the community.

Owners wanting to have their pets blessed can begin gathering in the shelter parking lot at 12:30 p.m., and the event will start at 1 p.m. All socialized animals are welcome, with cats in carriers and dogs on leash, please.

What Mittens wants you to know is that on this day, all adoptions are 50 percent off the regular fees, and she is very much hoping to find her forever home. Mittens is a very lovely and very sweet golden and brown torbie girl with cute white boots. She has medium length fur, and loves to be petted.

Mittens is about four years old, and seems to love everyone and gets along with the other kitties in the free-range playroom. She is outgoing and friendly, and comes up to visitors for attention. She does not seem to mind the dogs passing by the playroom window, so may do well in a home with a cat-friendly dog.

She will make a loving companion if just given a chance. And, on Saturday, you could give her that chance at a great adoption rate!

We have some very nice dogs, other adult kitties, and some darling kittens also looking for their forever homes. “Kitten Season” is winding down, so now is the time to adopt a cute kitten before they are no longer available.

We would be very grateful to receive donations of Kitten Chow for the little kitties who are still growing. It is specially formulated for kittens and they seem to do very well on it. Thank you for your support and see you Saturday!

Adoptions require approval of an adoption application. Applications are available at Email the completed form to Prospective adopters can also fill out an application at the shelter.

SPCHS Shelter is at 330 Second St. NE, Long Beach, WA 98631 (P.O. Box 101) 642-1180. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Be sure to follow us on Facebook too!
