We had a great event at the pound in Chouteau, OK!
On Wednesday August 13th a film crew came to the Chouteau, OK pound and filmed some footage for a series, Unlikely Animal Friends. Their subject was Piper, a Chouteau Pound Pals alumnus and the goat, GP, that she bonded and "licked to life" when he was a newborn. We hosted an adoption event with some other area rescues attending with some of their adoptable dogs, agility demonstrations, Geno's Hawg Trough was there with his unbelievably tender pulled pork sandwiches for the human attendees, homemade dog biscuit sales by the local 4H group (with proceeds going to Chouteau Pound Pals) for the 4-legged attendees, pop and water sales by the local Girl Scout troop, the local FFA kids came out and walked the pound dogs and we had a successful silent auction as well as raffle ticket sales for the chance to win a Swiss brand Stainless Steel 6 burner gas grill with rotisserie!
Please please please make sure your pets are spayed/neutered. There are more adoptable animals in our area than there are families willing to adopt, it adds to the burden of rescues, pounds and fosters when unwanted litters of animals are dumped. These puppies/kittens need to be vaccinated, spayed/neutered and fed before they can find their forever homes, and all of that costs a lot of money for the rescue organizations who rely on donations to keep their doors open.
As a non-profit, volunteer run organization we cherish every gift...large or small. Thank You all so much!
