Today is both International Homeless Animals Day and Clear the Shelters Day ( Shelters across the country are taking part in a nationwide push to place pets in forever homes. Participating shelters have agreed to cut the cost of adoption for the one-day Clear the Shelters event, organized in partnership with NBC Owned Television Stations and Telemundo Station Group.

If you or someone you know has been thinking about welcoming another member of your family, check out our local shelters to fall in love with a dog or cat who will be forever grateful for a second chance at life with a human who understands what is is to share life with and be committed to a pet.
It has been pointed out that in bidding adieu, the most recent President of the Callahan Dog Owners Group referred by name to existing Board  and Friends of Board members, but forgot to sign off with her own name!
Some may not have known her by name, but many probably recognized her on sight.
When you see her, say ‘Hi’!    She is… Kate Grater.
All the best!
