Stuff to do coming up

I might be otherwise busy in the next little while - so I thought I'd get one of my stuff to do posts out before I get distracted, so here goes -

Boston Terrier owners in the HRM are having a meet up next Sunday - March 27th at the Shubie Park ballfield - they've got a Facebook Event page set up for you to check out - it's happening from 1-2 pm - it's open to all small dogs - so if you've got one, you should go, and have a ton of fun!

Saturday April 2nd is the NS SPCA's annual Alley Cat Bowl - lots of fun for everybody - over $2,000 in prizes to be won, doors open at 6pm at Fairlanes Bowling Lanes - you can find out more info on the SPCA's website. It sounds like it's going to be a very fun time!

Hope for Wildlife is having their annual coffee house Sunday, April 3, 2011 from 12:00 – 4:00 pm in the Westphal Room, at Cole Harbour Place -
51 Forest Hills Parkway, Dartmouth, NS - Free Admission, Coffee/Tea, children’s crafts, and face painting! Meet the director of the Hope for Wildlife TV series! Buy your DVD copy of Season One on SALE for $50 (regular price $60) Enjoy a hands-on Reptile Safari with the Ssafe Haven Society for Reptiles and Amphibians. There will be musical guests and Denyse Sibley of FX 101.9 Today’s Country - For more information, please visit Tel: 407-WILD

Not really an upcoming event, but more of an announcement - Tristan Flynn of Golden Rule Dog Training has opened up an online store on his website where he's selling super tough dog toys that aren't available elsewhere locally, so he wanted to get the word out - he's also a fabulous positive only dog trainer - so if you're looking for that kind of guidance - and who in their right mind wouldn't be? You should check out his website at

There's a new website in town for those who love the dog friendly life style - it's called "" - and you should check it out - it's user based and will grow as you add stuff to it - so you should go and add stuff. Win/win!

This is a very worthwhile event - Basinview Animal Hospital is hosting an auction in support of Lori's Cat Rescue. This rescue is run by a great gal named Lori Martin. Over the past few years she has helped over 150 stray cats in the HRM. She has trapped these feral cats and has them spayed or neutered and vaccinated before releasing them back into their colony. Many of these cats are quite friendly and so, Lori finds homes for these cuties.

Frequently these cats require significant veterinary care including dentistry,abcess repair and parasite control. All of this work is done at her own expense! Unfortunately, the number of cats and kittens in need is growing.

If you have any items to donate to the auction you can contact Lynn Carroll or Stephanie Wood at Basinview for further information at 902-835-8383 - the Auction is Saturday, April 16th at BREWSTER's from 2-4pm.
Please come out and support a great lady and a great Rescue!

Also on April 16th is the NS SPCA AGM - this year is an election year, so it should be interesting - do you have your membership bought yet? If not - you should get one! I don't know where the meeting is yet - so stay tuned!
