Hawthorne

TDP_3056o9c0414-copy-1-913x288Great news! Hawthorne’s adoption fee has been prepaid by a Guardian Angel

Hawthorne is a young cat who has tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (also called FIV or feline AIDS). He was rescued after being dumped at a local park. He is a sweet and loving boy who was obviously a house pet as a kitten, but as so often happens, was no longer wanted after he grew into a cat. Hawthorne would be perfect for a family of any age. What does owning a FIV+ cat entail? Click here to learn more.

Hawthorne has lots of love to give and he wants to give it all to you!

Sago Palms, beautiful around the house deadly to your dogs.

SagoPalm

Sago Palms or King Sago Palms are very common around south Florida. You can find them planted in yards and in pots inside homes.

Did you know they are potentially deadly to your dogs? They sure are. In fact about 30% of dogs that ingest ANY part of the Sago Palm will die. Symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea. Dogs can develop liver issues in just hours including liver failure. Its also good to note that even if the dogs show no symptoms after eating any part of the Sago Palm the animal can still die.

If you have Sago Palms in or around your home and have dogs, beware! Its recommend to remove the palms or fence them off to keep animals away.

VIP Stops By the Shelter

Florida State Attorney General Pam Bondi, an animal lover, made a surprise visit to the shelter today. Dogs and Cats Forever thanks the Attorney General for her appreciation and support for what is being done at the organization.

A Job Well Done!

Liz_SushiBeing a non-profit no kill animal shelter is no easy task. Ask any of the number of volunteers who assist Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. on a regular basis. Money is always tight, help is sometimes short. Every donation whether its a can of food or as simple as a dollar bill is always accepted with grace and humility on behalf of the dogs and cats entrusted to the care of the shelter.

One such volunteer in 2013 stands out. Liz Levanti, a sixteen year old sophomore at Lincoln Park Academy in Ft. Pierce started a donation drive for the animals at Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. As part of her curriculum in the International Baccalaureate program offered through the school, Liz volunteered at Dogs and Cats Forever throughout the summer and fall of 2013. She took pictures of dogs and cats, started a Facebook page to keep people updated on the status of the fund drive and also displayed pictures in her mothers salon.

Liz raised more then $3500 in cash and donated goods to assist the animals at Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc.

It’s not everyday a person walks through the front door and donates such a significant amount of money and items. Its not every day a sixteen year old high school sophomore does it when her peers are spending the summers and weekends at the movies and beach.

Today Dogs and Cats Forever recognizes Liz for her fantastic achievements with a pizza lunch. Oh did I mention Liz is spending a portion of her spring break volunteering at the shelter? She is.

lizparty3

Liz, on behalf of all the animals at Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. we thank you for your hard work and selfless dedication to this organization. The animals and staff are very proud of you and know you will continue to succeed and go far in life with the attitude you have.

The animals and staff of Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. thanks all the volunteers and community who donate to the organization whether its time, money, goods and services.

D&C_Dinner1Chef Jacques Schlock le Bloch, France’s leading wine connoisseur, is touting his own varietals as well as the opening his new St. Lucie restaurant, Escargot Mais Oui! Eatery. But, does his sommelier, Candy Coq Au Vin, have something to hide, or is she just there to pop his cork? Petula Pignoli, famous Italian songstress, is also present…but what exactly are she and local party planner, Tiffany Tira-Misu, cooking up? There are shenanigans galore, and it’s up to the summoned detective and the guests to figure out who wants to stomp out the competition…permanently!
