Why has the Hyde County Rabies Clinic has been Rescheduled so many times?

A lot of our blog followers are very curious as to why the Hyde County Rabies Clinic has been rescheduled from March 7th to March14th to March 21st and now the new date is March 28th, 2009. 

So here are the reasons..... On March 7th the order for the rabies needles & vaccines were mixed up with another shelter and the wrong order was received.

 On March 14th the correct order had still not been received by the Hyde County Animal Shelter in addition to really bad weather.

On March 21st the correct order had been received however, if you are a Pampered Pets Guide blog follower you are aware that Hyde County only has one Animal Control Officer. Due to an injury at work Animal Control Officer JM Eakes was not in good health to hold the scheduled Rabies Clinic.

So now the new date is March 28th, 2009 same places same time as the original clinic. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

A Portrait of Kodiak

Kodiak was the 1st Place winner of the Vol. 4 Outer Banks SPCA Awareness Pet Photo Contest that is the cover dog for the Vol. 5 issue of the Pampered Pets Guide.

Kodiak was photographed by Nancy Dierson in Nags Head, NC, when he was 14 years old, during his Vacation to the Pet Friendly, Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Being the 1st Place winner Kodiak & his family received a 16 x 20 beautifully hand painted acrylic (matted to size) Custom Pet Portrait by Outer Banks Artist Lee M. Mansfield of the Hemingway Gallery in Seagate North Shopping Center in Kill Devil Hills, NC.

Kodiak's portrait does not match his winning cover photo, as all winners are allowed to submit a photo of choice, for Artist Lee M. Mansfield to use in creating their custom portrait.
