A BIRTHDAY DONATION...
This is a picture of Ella R., age 9, who had a birthday party and asked her friends to bring a donation for Save Ohio Strays instead of a gift for her. She and her friends are donating 17 lbs. of dog food, 20 cans of cat food, 13 ball toys, 14 ropes and squeaky toys, 4 leaches and collars and one bag of dog bones. She brought everything to our Petco adoption event on April 6th. THANK YOU ELLA you are a life saver!
Check out Gracie and her 4 pups. There is one female and three males. They are now 3 weeks old. They are growing fast and have taken their first steps. They still have about 5 - 6 weeks before they will be ready for their forever homes.
Meet Gracie she was rescued on Feb. 27th from Fulton County. As you can see she is pregnant with we believe 4 puppies. This poor girl was left in a house for 4 months when her owner went into a nursing home, someone only came once a day to feed her. We believe she may have never been outside as she is puppy pad trained. She is still a sweet and loving girl even though she has been through a lot. Her puppies are due in about a week. As you can see from the x-ray her puppies are big, so keep her in your thoughts that she may deliver them on her own. If not she will need a c-section and her medical expenses will increase fast so please consider a monetary donation or donating items off our Amazon Wish List so that we can continue to help animals like Gracie. You can check out our facebook page for more pictures of Gracie.
Ink Cartridge Recycling...
Not recycling your empty ink or toner cartridges, donate them to SOS to help the animals. SOS recycles ink and toner cartridges and uses the money for office supplies. You can help the animals by simply dropping your ink and toner cartridges off at any SOS event. We collect them all year long.
Purina Weight Circles...
Use Purina products to feed your cat or dog? Did you know SOS could use them to help feed the animals. SOS collects Purina weight circles and we then turn them in to Purina for coupons to purchase food for the animals. You can drop them off at any SOS event or mail them to Save Ohio Strays, P.O. Box 16, Wadsworth, Ohio 44282. THANK YOU!
A Thank You goes to...
A Huge SHOUT OUT goes to Pat Worcester & Linda Gross! They raised $900.00 dollars for Jane's Angel Fund (a fund for SOS to use for special needs animals). This is the proceeds from their "Crazy Sister" Craft Sale on December 7th in Avon. THANKS LADIES! As Sandy C. would say "YOU ROCK".
Thank you so much Kelly for our wonderful Frost (we call him Jake). He’s lived with us for a month now, Sam our older dog is showing him the joy of the furnace vent on cold mornings among other things. He’s been to the vet for his most recent round of shots and the vet says he’s doing great. He’s almost house trained now. We enjoy Jake so much and we are so appreciative of the amazing work that you and all the dedicated folks at Save Ohio Strays are doing.
Note: Frost was from the litter of Parvo puppies and Frost spent the most time in the hospital - one week. Just look at him now! Thanks for the update.
