Visit your local animal shelter this month if you are thinking about adding a new member to your home. There are many very friendly, well socialized dogs that become homeless when their owners experience changes in their lives like illness or moving. You are always welcome to visit the animals and spend some play time with them at PMFAS!



Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter is holding a fundraiser!

Holiday time is right around the corner and it's not too early to remember special people in our lives -- friends, family members, and co-workers.  Scented candles make excellent gifts for many on our list. 

Flameless fragrances are an even safer choice for certain folks on our gift list -- younger folks, grand-parents or friends and relatives who have pets in the home.
As partners with Yankee Candle in this fundraiser, PMFAS will receive 40% profit from each item you purchase.
Please click the link below and start some of your holiday shopping today!
We hope you enjoy your shopping experience!

Please share this information, the link and our group number with friends and family so that they can get an early start on gift-giving as well.

On behalf of PMFAS we thank you for your support!

Be sure to enter our group number in the box that says “Start Shopping.”  This assures that our furry friends at PMFAS will benefit from your generosity.
Our group number is: 990084268

Complete your shopping no later than November 6 when this fundraiser ends.


PS -- Don’t forget to buy something special for yourself.
Keep several on hand so you can enjoy your favorite fragrances in your own home!




The first week in October is traditionally National Walk Your Dog Week and Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter is promoting this for the entire month! The

cool, crisp days of October are perfect for dog walking and this is a healthy activity for not only your dog but also for you and your family!

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, more than 40 percent of dogs - a total of about 17 million in the United States - are overweight.  The AVMA advises that if you walk your dog just 30 minutes a day, you will meet national recommendations for heart health.  Asking your children to accompany you by walking the dog themselves while you supervise, will set them up for a better chance that they will continue to not only enjoy physical exercise, but that they will be responsible dog stewards when they're adults.

Remember.... a tired dog...is a good dog!

If you're not an avid dog walker, spend 30 minutes a few times each week – or more - walking with your dog!

You'll feel so good....you won't want to stop!
