UPDATE 11/26/02 on the Montana Collies
Statement by AWCA President Jean Levitt
*Permission to crosspost*
The dog toys are on their way to Montana! As soon as our 11/25 update
was posted announcing our veterinarian's request for nylabones, many
of you responded, and they were sent. The cat hidey holes and cat
nests were also sponsored immediately. Checks were sent for cat
litter and pan liners, and a dog club got together and sent the water
pail clips. Okay, I admit I was less than "calm" when Judy relayed
this information to me! Thank you all.
AWCA still needs another licensed veterinary technician who can travel
at his/her own expense to support the grooming team. Is there an
organization out there who knows of such an individual whom you would
be willing to sponsor? If so, respond to Judy Cummings, AWCA
Now, this request is not as fun, but it is very important to help
decontaminate the animals and provide them with dignity. The captain
of the professional groomers on our grooming support team urgently
requests you send old terrycloth towels which have never been used on
animals. They must be washed with bleach, no matter what color, and
very thoroughly dried in a hot, closed dryer before packing them.
Ship these ASAP to: AWCA Grooming Team - TOWELS
c/o Toole County Sheriff's Office
Shelby, MT 59474
The next update will be after Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
