Roving Reporter | "Spreading the Word" | by Deb Navin

On Friday Oct 15th, 2016, Kathy Noble, president of the BOD of The Humane Society and Adoption Center of Rockport/Fulton, gave a presentation to the RCC Ladies Association during a luncheon at the Rockport Country Club. The main focus of the talk was the work that HSAC has been doing in the community to fight the overpopulation of unwanted pets in the area HSAC pays for the spay/neuter surgeries for all cats and dogs adopted through Animal Control as well utilizing grant monies to subsidize the costs at the now bi-monthly MASH clinics held at the shelter.

Kathy also praised the pro bono work that Dr's Harrell and Brunelle do at the animals and how all funding for the shelter comes from private donations and grants.

Ms Noble also spoke of the new wellness clinic, Wellness on Wheelz that will be setting up on the shelter grounds every few weeks starting Nov 6th. This clinic will be offering low cost vaccinations, microchipping and zeutering (a non-surgical neutering).

And of course, several furry residents went along to show the ladies what wonderful pets are available at the Humane Society, there are a lot of misconceptions about the quality and temperament of shelter animals, and they wanted to prove that they aren't damaged or bad, just homeless. No surprise, but one lucky woman fell head over heels in love with pretty kitty Olive and left the luncheon to go straight out to Myrtle St and adopt her! All in all, a successful, informative lunch!
