Princess Jezibelle and the Gift of Giving


Princess Jezibelle and the Gift of Giving

Last December the Animal Control officer brought a pitiful looking senior dog into the office of our Currituck County Animal Shelter, shook his head and, as he handed over her leash to the Shelter Manager, remarked what an easy stray she was to catch because she couldn't run; she could barely walk. As the Shelter Manager, Laura Marquette, began to make out the new stray's paperwork, she noticed the broken and missing teeth, cataracts, a limp in her arthritic back legs, and that she had only half of one of her ears. When she looked back at the new arrival again, she realized that this unattractive looking dog was giving her a smile -- a crooked but big smile! Laura needed to put a name on the records. Mischievously, she chose Jezibelle. There was no room in the shelter, so where could this new arrival go? Jezibelle looked around the office, checked out a couple of spots, including the bathroom, and selected the cushioned wicker couch in the front lobby/office! As staff came through the lobby and paused to pet her, she gave each an affectionate kiss. Scratching her back brought that engaging crooked smile and a big tail wag. The staff was smitten!

The next day one of the regular dog kennels in the rear of the shelter became available and Jezibelle was moved into it. The following day she began to tremble and shake, wouldn't eat, and appeared to be quite sick. It was the Shelter Manager's day off but she was moved back into the lobby/ office where she could be more closely observed. She immediately reclaimed her spot on the cushioned wicker couch. Whenever a staff member would approach her, she again began to shake and appear to be sick. Not wanting to upset her, when it was time to leave for the night our thoughtful staff members picked up the couch with Jezibelle sitting on it and carried her, as if she were the Queen of Sheba, into the coziest room in the shelter, the bathroom! When the Shelter Manager arrived the next day and examined Jezibelle, she found that she was not sick at all. Jezibelle had manipulated the entire staff into returning her to the center of activity where she could meet and greet and get petted by all who entered what she had now claimed as her fifedome,the shelter lobby!

Months passed and no one seemed to want to adopt a friendly 12 year old dog with a gray muzzle, broken and missing teeth, cataracts, part of her ear missing, and limited mobility. From the outset Jezibelle had taken it upon herself to become the official greeter and mascot of the shelter. Anyone who entered, human or animal, got the crooked Jezibelle smile and a friendly lick or kiss. Her days were spent divided between greeting, surveying her subjects, and sleeping on her couch in the lobby office. Evenings were spent unsuccessfully searching for dog treats. One morning the staff walked in to find one of the treat boxes empty --and Jezibelle smiling, wagging her tail, and giving a big burp! Treat boxes are no longer left on the Manager's desk at the end of the day.

By Father's Day Jezibelle had completely endeared herself to everybody and, because she surveyed most of the days' activities from the vantage of her couch throne, she gained the title of Princess Jezibelle. For a special Father's Day Adoption Weekend, it was advertised in the newspaper that anyone who came to the shelter to adopt a pet could adopt at a discounted price if her highness Princess Jezibelle deemed a person worthy of her favor and licked the person's hand. If she greatly approved of the adopter by favoring him with her kiss on his cheek, she decreed that one of her specially selected stuffed animal toys would be granted to accompany the adopted pet. We had a good weekend and Jezibelle, of course, licked every hand and gave everyone kisses. More animals than usual went to new homes that weekend, but not Jezibelle.

Some of our young animal lovers collected items for our shelter animals from their neighborhoods or had birthdays celebrated by young friends bringing gifts for the animals for the birthday celebrant. There to greet each child and check out their lobby filling treats and give a lick of appreciation is Jezibelle, complete with her sun shade and sun glasses to help with her cataracts.

A recent trip to the veterinarian has brought her some increased mobility thanks toprednisone. This is a dog who is living out her life as she may have been destinedto live it -- by giving the most important gift of all to to everyone she meets --the gift of joy and love!

Outer Banks SPCA "Special Funds" Donations

The Outer Banks SPCA has "Special Funds" for donations to help animals on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

When making donations this Holiday Season to the Outer Banks SPCA please note in your check memo if there is a fund that you wish to have your funds allocated too.

The Following are the Special Funds set up through the Outer Banks SPCA:

Medical Care Fund

Gifts support medical care for seriously sick & injured animals during their stay at the Dare County Animal Shelter. Each year we assist animals suffering from fractures, infectious deceases, heart worms, and life threatening conditions.

Spay/Neuter Fund

Millions of dogs & cats are euthanized in United States animal shelters each year due to overpopulation and lack of resources and adopters. In response to the crisis, the Outer Banks SPCA , in collaboration with local veterinarians, provides subsidized spay/neuter for cats and dogs in their care.

Adoption Fund

The Outer Banks SPCA constantly sees "forever homes" for the 25-50 dogs & cats in the Shelter at any given time. Funds help defray cost of medical evaluations, food, and the work of the Shelter Staff with animals and adopters to ensure a successful transition into the family.

Shelter Improvement Fund

Rehabilitated in 1988, the Dare County Animal Shelter was formerly a garage. Gifts to this fund provide for continued upkeep on this aging facility and will one day help support renovation or replacement with a progressive facility that sets the standard for animal care on the Outer Banks.

Community Education Fund

The Outer Banks SPCA provides educational publications, seminars, presentations, and workshops in local schools and for the general public to promote a humane environment for animals, residents and visitors.

Let's Keep Our Pets Safe, Happy & Healthy this Holiday Season!


Dear Pet Owners,

We would like to extend warm wishes to everyone on the Outer Banks this holiday season. As we celebrate with family and friends, let’s be sure to keep some important safety tips in mind for our furry family members. One way to be sure our pets have an enjoyable season is to do our best to eliminate potential hazards.

Plants

Poinsettias, Holly, Mistletoe and Christmas trees set the tone for our holiday decorations, but we must be sure to keep these out of reach of pets. Poinsettias, although not as poisonous as once thought, can cause irritation to the mouth and stomach leading to vomiting. Holly berries contain toxins called saponins, which leads to vomiting, diarrhea and lethargy. Be sure to keep mistletoe up where it belongs and out of reach of pets. It has many different varieties, but all are toxic to pets. Mistletoe can cause vomiting, liver failure or seizures depending on the variety.

Ever wonder why cat collars have a quick release? Christmas trees come to my mind! Cats love to climb these green jungle gyms, and their collars can get hung up on branches. It is best to keep cats and dogs away from the Christmas tree unless supervised. Other hazards include chewing and/or swallowing ornaments and drinking the water under the tree. Often times insecticides, preservatives and fire-retardant chemicals sit in the water feeding your Christmas tree. It is important to keep pets away from the tree either by using baby gates or closed doors unless supervised.

Electric Cords

Extension cords are used much more often this season and can be attractive to teething puppies or playful cats. Be sure to keep all extension cords unplugged or out of reach when pets cannot be supervised.

Ribbons and Tinsel

Strings and ribbons are often some of our cat’s favorite toys, but they can be dangerous if swallowed. The material can obstruct or slice through the gastrointestinal tract causing serious consequences. It is important to keep these decorations out of reach of our pets.

Holiday Food

It is often tempting to feed Fluffy or Fido bits of the holiday meal, but feeding pets foods that they are not used to eating can cause serious stomach upset or pancreatitis. It is also important to not feed leftover bones to pets due to the fact that they can lacerate or obstruct the gastrointestinal tract. Some foods that are toxic to pets include chocolate, onions, raisins and grapes. This is not a complete list but is just a few of the foods pets have access to over the holidays.

Guests / Holiday Parties

Be sure that all pets have a safe, quiet place of their own during holiday get-togethers. These times are often very stressful for pets and can lead to behavior issues if they can’t get away from the commotion. It is also a good idea to keep your pet in a safe place during parties as it can be easy for them to run away with guests coming and going.

Even when all of the proper precautions are taken, accidents can still happen. Please do not hesitate to call one of the veterinarians on the Outer Banks if you have any questions or concerns about your pet.

Happy Holidays!

Dr.s and Staff of
Martin's Point Veterinary Hospital

George's Adoption Story


I just saw a picture of Sam http://pamperedpetsguide.blogspot.com/2008/12/sam-finds-his-forever-home.html the adopted Pekingese. He looked so much like my George. I adopted George in 2005, he was only 1.5 years old then, and had already been in 4 homes including his foster home. I thought I was making a mistake at first, 4 homes there must be something wrong with this guy.

He just had bad luck and no one who was willing to give him a chance, his first owners were military and got orders,the people who bought their house took him with the intention of finding him a new home, found him one, didn't last, the lady gave him back. Then a few weeks later she wanted him back, they gave him back to her, she decided he was too much with her other dogs she already had, he ended up in a foster home for awhile, then finally me.

He has been the most wonderful guy, we all love him so much, and he truely brings us so much happiness, he even loves our cats. My mom made him his own blanket when I got him, he is like her 5th grandchild. I could not imagine not having him.

People really need to consider their circumstances before getting any pet. They have feelings, they feel happy, they feel afraid,they feel lonely, they feel rejection. Pets are living creatures not things we can return to the store when we don't want them.

The Pampered Pets Guide would like to thank George's Mom, Tammie for sharing George's Adoption story & photo with us.

Please e-mail us with your happy adoption stories at info@pamperedpetsguide.com

ANIMAL LOVERS ASSISTANCE LEAGUE RECEIVES $10,000.00 GRANT


ANIMAL LOVERS ASSISTANCE LEAGUE RECEIVES $10,000.00 GRANT FROM PETSMART CHARITIES® TO SPAY/NEUTER 164 PETS

The Animal Lovers AssistanceLeague, Inc., received a $10,000.00 grant last week from PetsMart Charities to increase its number of spay/neuter operations for animals being adopted from the Currituck Animal Shelter by nearly 250%.

The Animal Lovers Assistance League, which operates the Currituck County Animal Shelter, can currently afford to spay or neuter only a small percentage of the cats and no dogs prior to their being adopted from the Shelter. In most cases a person who is adopting an animal from the Shelter receives a pre-paid voucher, which is covered by the adoption fee, that is valid to pay part of the cost of getting his new pet spayed or neutered. Thespay/neutering of animals is in keeping with nationally recognized programs of controlling pet over population.

The Currituck Animal Shelter, which is undersized to meet the needs of one of the state's fastest growing counties, is proactively fighting the area's dire pet overpopulation problem. A requirement of the grant is that the Animal Lovers Assistance League (ALAL) ask Currituck county officials to provide matching funds for the grant amount, which they will be doing. This could lead to a very significant improvement in helping control local pet overpopulation.

According to Ginger Sikes, President of the Animal Lovers AssistanceLeague, "We are excited that this PetSmart Charities® grant will be a major help in starting to control the county's pet overpopulation problem. We hope that our spay/neuuter program will soon become a model for other agencies across the country."

"The Animal Lovers Assistance League's spay/neuter program is a great example of taking the initiative to improve the local community," said Susana Della Maddalena, Executive Director of PetSmart Charities."Targeted programs like these are the key to successful, low-cost spay/neuter in local communities. Cumulatively, they are making a huge impact on pet overpopulation nationwide."

The Animal Lovers Assistance League, which was founded in 2005, has received the Governor's Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service in the State of North Carolina and in 2007 Outstanding Non-Profit of the Year in Currituck County. Last month the Currituck Animal Shelter received a State of North Carolina Inspection score of 100%, and this in a year when new higher state standards, which required additional training, had been implemented in the state for the first time.

Loving Home needed for German Shepherd

Harry needs a Loving Home

Alot of you have met Harry. He is a five year old male German Shepherd. Harry is an exceptional German Shepherd that needs just the right home. Harry is a rescue that has been living with me for the past three months. Although unneutered he is very healthy.

I am looking for the perfect home for him. He is a very sweet boy that needs lots of love. I am requiring that Harry be neutered. He is crate trained, as a matter of fact he loves his crate. I will be doing a home visit prior to placing him. He loves to play ball, and he will truly bond very quickly to his new master. He is great with other dogs, although he prefers to not interact. I would prefer that he go to a home with no other dogs. Harry loves to be outdoors so I am requiring his new owners have a fenced yard. An electric fence will not apply. Harry was very neglected in his previous home so he needs alot of gentle care. I will be requiring monthly visits for the first few months. I have grown very attached to him, but I want Harry to get more attention than I can give him.

Harry must stay in the area. For more information or to schedule an interview please give me a call. Serious inquiries only.

CURRITUCK ANIMAL SHELTER RECEIVES PERFECT STATE INSPECTION SCORE


A recent inspection by North Carolina Department of Agriculture, Veterinary Division, State Inspector Joe Blomquist of the Currituck County Animal Shelter,which is operated by the Animal Lovers Assistance League, resulted in a perfect score! Although the shelter lacks certain areas and rooms now required by the state of more recently constructed shelters, the inspection evaluated the conditions as they exist within the limitations of the current facility.

Areas that are evaluated are the: Structure; Primary Enclosures; Sanitation;Husbandry (includes adequate feed/water, food storage, personnel and ratio of personnel to animals, and animals' appearance); Records; Transportation of Animals;Veterinary Care. Also checked were utilization of recent protocols and procedures that are now required and have been implemented statewide. Members of the staff have attended these classes that have been held in various parts of the state. Vulcan Materials made a very generous donation of gravel that is now required to meet state standards. Being able to meet the new higher standards required by the state reflects very favorably on the dedicated efforts of the shelter staff to provide the best care possible for the animals at the shelter, and donations by numerous people and businesses.

Currituck Animal Shelter Staff as they receive a small Thanksgiving gift from the Animal Lovers Assistance League:(L-R) Sarah Capps; Shelter Manager Laura Marquette; Becky Beasley; Tim Puchett;Scott Bailey; and Barbara Martin.

Smitty finds a New Home!


Smitty is a Dachshund that was taken to the Dare County Animal Shelter operated by the Outer Banks SPCA when his single elderly human companion passed away.

Being a small community the word of Smitty's plight spread fast. There were a number of families ready to adopt Smitty. Smitty actually stayed at the shelter for a few weeks for the Outer Banks SPCA to assess the right placement for Smitty's new home.

Many of our readers will remember "Beau" a Long Haired Miniature Dachshund that celebrated his 19th Birthday on February 5th 2009 and later passed away on Saturday, May 30th 2009.

To read more about Beau please go to http://www.pamperedpetsguide.com/ and click on "Birthday & Memorials" button.

The Pampered Pets Guide is so happy to announce that Smitty was placed with Beau's family.
Smitty is an only pet currently being loved, pampered & spoiled. He happily resides in the town of Manteo on Historic Roanoke Island with his new forever family.
