VFW Post 8587 Georgetown Cook-Off Sept. 21-22

VFW Post 8587 2nd Annual Georgetown BBQ Cook-Off

VFW Post 8587, our neighbors by the park, are hosting their second annual BBQ cook-off on September 21 and 22.  They have again asked us to be the recipients of any funds raised at the accompanying silent auction. We are in need of donations for the silent auction and can use your help.  If you have an item to donate, please email us at animalsvc@georgetown.org.  We will collect the items at the shelter – be sure to tell us it is for the silent auction.

The more donations we receive, the more funds we can raise to support the animals we help to find their forever homes!  If you are interested in participating in the cook-off, see below. And of course, come out and eat some BBQ!

 

Cups for a Cause Benefit Sept. 30

The Georgetown Animal Shelter is grateful for being included among these worthy recipients.  Thanks to the Sun City Creative Clay group!

Liberty Tax Adoption Event Mar. 31

Our friends at Liberty Tax are raising funds for the Georgetown Animal Shelter throughout March, and celebrating with an adoption event on March 31.  Join us at 2803 Williams, #105, on March 31, 10-1, and maybe you’ll find a new family member to adopt!

At Liberty Tax, we believe that when you give, you get back. There’s no better way to do that than to hold an adoption event with the Georgetown Animal Shelter! Join us in bringing awareness to the best four legged friends in Georgetown that are looking for a forever home.

 

Shred-It Adoption Event Mar. 24

Wise Counsel, a local financial planning firm, is hosting “Shred Fest” and wanted to partner with us.  We appreciate the opportunity!  Drop by 1629 Rivery Blvd., Suite 120, on March 24, 11-1, to meet some dogs, shred some papers and have a taco!

Join us for our 2nd Annual Shred Fest!

We will have a mobile shred truck on site for you do some spring cleaning to those documents that are taking over your junk drawer and office!

We’ll have “shredded” chicken tacos with all the trimmings for a quick bite to eat. The Georgetown Animal Shelter will also be onsite for an adoption drive!

Bring a friend, bring your dog, or just come for the tacos, but we’ll see you there!

Dec. 12 Volunteer Orientation

If you’re interesting in volunteer at our shelter, please come to the volunteer orientation on Tuesday, December 12, 5-6 p.m. 

You will get an overview of the shelter and a tour, and then you can think about what activities you’re interested in – such as dog walking, cat socializing/cleaning, adoption guide, and offsite adoption guide.  We will provide additional training related to the activities you sign up for so that you feel fully prepared.

Once you have attended an orientation, you may sign up for a regular time or simply come when you are able.  There is no minimum requirement in terms of hours per month.

We hope to see you at this orientation!  The other December orientation has been canceled to allow us to participate in the Christmas Stroll.

This young lady went home after spending the summer visiting the shelter with her Great Aunt who volunteers here. She spent many happy hours at the shelter during her visits and was sad to leave her favorite pups behind (one named Tori in particular). So her Great Aunt purchased this stuffed dog from our ReTAIL Store to remind her of all the fun she had!

She named the stuffed dog Tori.

What a great way to teach the younger generation about the importance of adopting, being kind, and giving back to the community.

We have the best volunteers.
