AHNA wants to give two amazing young people our most sincere thanks for their extraordinary generosity. Selfless and caring sisters Lindsey, age 10, and Lauren, age 12, both asked for donations of pet food instead of birthday gifts for themselves! They carefully stored the donations until our pet food drive began and are thrilled that the food will benefit three organizations that work to help needy pets. This is Lindsey’s second year donating her birthday gifts and now Lauren has joined her, which means that many more hungry pets will be helped!
All of us at Animal Hospital of North Asheville are thrilled that Tails at Twilight-Taste of Compassion raised over $100,000 to help needy pets in our community. We feel fortunate to have an organization such as Asheville Humane Society caring for the needy pets of our community, so we feel honored to be a sponsor for this great event. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make it spectacular and to everyone who came out to help the animals! See pictures and read more below.
Please note: Be aware that anything that alters your cat’s environment, including your Christmas tree and decorations, may frighten or stress your cat. It may not be a good idea to further stress your cat by adding an aversive scent to the tree as the following article suggests. Cats are very sensitive to smells, so if your living scape is small, do not use an aversive scent. Cats who are stressed may exhibit problematic behaviors such as urine spaying and clawing furniture, so it is best to protect your cat from stress.
