Marshall County Humane Society News
Spaghetti supper very successful
The Marshall County Humane Society’s seventh annual spaghetti supper last week was our most successful yet, thanks to all you hungry people who were smart enough to get some good food and support a worthy cause at the same time. As with all our events, all the profit we made will be used to feed and care for needy animals.
It’s October and, even though the weather is still warm, global warming hasn’t completely eradicated our winter yet. As we clean in spring, so we winterize in fall. Pets’ bedding and surrounding areas need to be cleaned and debugged. Use caution in bringing in pine straw right out of the woods. It may very well be full of ticks. Make sure anybody spending the winter outside has a good shelter, clean, dry and warm. And it’s not too soon to be giving thought about how to provide fresh water on freezing days.
Around the house everyone should know by now, but, just in case someone forgot, please be super careful with any insecticide, herbicide, pesticide or any of the other “cides” and especially antifreeze. Any of those things, if used or disposed of improperly, are potentially lethal for pets and children. While you’re fixing one problem don’t create an even worse one for yourself.
