HOSPICE PET CALENDER ON SALE NOW.
TFN

SAVANNAH HOSPICE BEGINS THEIR SECOND ANNUAL PET CALENDER SALES. THE CALENDER HIGHLIGHTS THE PROGRAM’S SCOPES AND BENEFITS ‘PET PEACE OF MIND’. Hospice Savannah is so excited because they are getting ready to launch their 2015 Pet calendar in hopes of continuing to raise funds for their Pet Peace of Mind © program that benefits hospice patients and their animals. We would be so delighted if you could share our story with your listeners. For the second year Hospice Savannah is offering a Pet Calendar to highlight the program’s scope and raise additional funds. Even with funding from Amie’s Place Foundation, a start-up grant from Banfield Charitable Trust, assistance from partners Case Veterinary Hospital and TailsSpin Pet Food and Accessories and from the many groomers, boarders and veterinarians who have discounted their fees, more funding is needed to keep this program going. The 2015 Pet Calendar sales should help.  Utilizing many images from Hospice Savannah volunteer and retired orthopedic surgeon, Les Wilkes, the calendar features patients and families impacted by the Pet Peace of Mind© program, as well as several of the hospice’s Hug-a-Pet volunteers. The 2015 Hospice Savannah Pet Calendar is on sale now and can be purchased for a $15 minimum donation to The Pet Peace of Mind© program. They are available during regular business hours from the reception desk at Hospice House, 1329 Eisenhower Drive, and from the reception desk of Hospice Savannah’s administrative offices at 1674 Chatham Parkway. They are also available at Case Veterinary Hospital, 111 Eisenhower Drive.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS.  It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year,   it's only going to be longer.  So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care.  Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current -  If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments.  Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover.  Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box  30462, Savannah, GA 31410.

Volunteers are needed to help clean, paint, rake leaves, and pick up debris. Volunteers who have their own tools, rakes, etc. are encouraged to bring them as we have limited ones on site. Additionally, we need donations of some items, to include: Lawn and leaf bags, 14 thick blankets/comforters, Rags, 1 Outdoor trash cans, Bug spray, Bleach, 14 Stainless steel food and water dishes, Deck box (for outdoor storage), A broom, Pavers, Plywood and Shingles (to replace the roof), Or purchase directly from our Amazon.com Wishlist.

Once the kennels are up and running, we'll be looking for volunteers to help daily with cleaning and walking canines as well as assisting with transporting them to and from vet visits, foster homes and adoption days.


 

CITY OF SAVANNAH SANITATION BULK COLLECTION
TFN   

THE CITY OF SAVANNAH ANNOUNCES A NEW SYSTEM FOR BULK COLLECTION.  CITIZENS MAY SCHEDULE THEIR BULK COLLECTION BY CALLING 311.  Residents will still have a scheduled week each month to receive bulk item collection with no additional charge, but collection will no longer be automatic. Residents must call 311 by the Friday prior to their scheduled week of collection to receive no-fee bulk item collection service. The collection schedule is still based upon customers' weekly trash collection day.   Residents will be charged a fee for the collection of any bulk items put out for pick-up that have not been called in to 311 by the Friday deadline. Any items placed out off-schedule will also be removed for a fee. Sanitation calendar magnets were distributed to residents at the start of the year. The calendars can also be downloaded online at savannahga.gov/sanitation.  Bulk item collection is a continued service offered by City of Savannah Sanitation to retrieve and dispose of large items placed out for collection by residents during a one-week period each month. Bulk items include most large household goods, including discarded furniture and appliances. Items that will NOT be collected during bulk item pickup include yard waste, construction material, hazardous materials and liquid waste.
