ON THE COVER: This is Iris. She’s a Lab mix about one and a half years old. One morning our staff found her and her seven pups abandoned on our deck in a carrier. The first thing you could see when you looked into the carrier was the dog’s beautiful eyes, hence the name Iris. Our staff approached Iris and was greeted with a growl and she would not let us near her puppies. With some coaxing Iris finally warmed up to one of our staff and we were able to get her and the puppies into our quarantine room. Since, she has accepted all of us and we have been working with her and the puppies to wean them and get all of them ready for adoption.

Meet Iris and her pups at the SPCA of the Triad, 3163 Hines Chapel Rd., Greensboro. For more information call 336-375-3222 or go online: www.triadspca.org.

Vet’s Corner Kitrina Journell, DVM Animal Hospital of Lewisville Dr. Kitrina Journell graduated from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007 and then worked in the suburbs of Chicago for two years before relocating to North Carolina. Dr. Journell met her husband while completing her Biology, Pre-med Degree at James Madison University. They are now happy to call North Carolina home and enjoy exploring all NC has to offer with their daughter Hadleigh and three furry kids (Parker, Abe, and Madison)! Dr. Journell loves practicing at the Animal Hospital of Lewisville because of the close relationships she has been able to establish with many clients and their pets.

Puppy Love

Adopting a new puppy or kitten is a very exciting time for the whole family. If you have decided to add a puppy to your family, make sure you have everything ready before you bring him home. Your puppy will be away from his mother and littermates for the first time and may be a little stressed at first. You can welcome him home by having a safe place for him to stay. Crate training is often a successful way to house-train a puppy and keep him safe when he cannot be supervised. Puppies love to chew things, especially things that don’t belong to them. While you get to know your puppy, make sure he does not shred any toys and eat the pieces. This could lead to gastroenteritis (inflamed gut) or worse, an obstruction that requires surgery. After adopting your puppy, you will want to establish a relationship with a local veterinarian. You’ll want a full physical exam to detect any problems your puppy may have. Sometimes puppies have already received their first vaccine, but they will need to get a booster vaccine every 3-4 weeks until the puppy is 16 weeks old. Generally, the first vaccine is given between 6-9 weeks old, but your veterinarian will establish an appropriate schedule based on size, age, and health. During these early weeks, your puppy should only be around healthy, vaccinated dogs. Also, remember to only walk him in an area that does not have other dogs’ feces. Unfortunately, Parvovirus has the potential to be in the environment up to 6 months and is highly contagious to a puppy.   A large majority of puppies have intestinal parasites (worms) and possibly fleas. Both problems can make your puppy sick if not treated appropriately. Many intestinal parasites are zoonotic (transmissible to humans); therefore, pick up their poop as soon as they go to prevent contamination. Young children need to be reminded to wash their hands after handling the puppy. For your 10

family and your puppy’s safety, it is generally recommended that all puppies be dewormed, even if the fecal appears negative. Your veterinarian will also decide what the safest flea, tick, and heartworm preventative is based on your puppy’s lifestyle.

Kitten Love

Much like a new puppy, adding a new kitten to your family requires preparation. When kittens are little, they need to be kept in a safe area where they can’t get lost or stuck in furniture or cords. Generally a small room with a litter box, food, and water is acceptable. If the kitten is very small (less than 2lbs), often a large dog crate can be the safest option when the kitten can’t be watched.  Litter box selection and hygiene are extremely important with cats. The litter box should be placed in a quiet area without any noises that could be perceived as scary (away from laundry machines, high traffic areas for kids, blowing fans, etc). As the kitten grows, so should the litter box. Your cat should be able to turn completely around and have enough litter to bury any excrement. A large storage container can work well when the kitten gets bigger but still needs to be scooped at least once daily. The best food for your kitten (or cat, for that matter) is canned food. Depending on their age, they may be able to have dry kibble available as well. Younger kittens may need to be fed multiple times per day, but your veterinarian will help guide you to what is best for your cat. New cats should be tested for Feline Leukemia (FELV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) before being introduced to other cats in the household. Kittens also have to go through a series of vaccines to keep them protected. Most kittens receive their first vaccine between 8-10 weeks of age, and then every 3-4 weeks after until they are 16 weeks. They also need to be treated with an appropriate dewormer and flea product. There are many flea and tick products that can be very dangerous for cats. Please consult with your veterinarian before applying or giving any products. If your kitten (or puppy) must have a bath before your first appointment, it is imperative that they are kept warm after the bath. Young, small pets have a harder time maintaining their body temperature. It is generally considered acceptable to use Dawn liquid dish washing soap to help with a flea infestation, but further prevention will be needed. Kittens love playing and sleeping in cardboard boxes, and it can be therapeutic to watch. Puppies love to play tug of war and keep themselves busy with food dispensing toys. These toys provide entertainment and fulfill their desire to chew, while mentally challenging them to get the food out of the container. Inviting a new puppy or kitten to your home can be a very rewarding experience when you are prepared.

Born in 2013, we don’t know how DD ended up fending for herself on the streets, but it is obvious she was someone’s pet at one time. She’s nearly pure seal point Siamese. Shy with Tailless Cat Rescue strangers and doesn’t like to be picked up, but does LOVE to be petted. She would do best in a quiet home with lots of petting but no hugs and no small children. She is vaccinated, wormed, spayed, and treated for fleas. She is FeLV and heartworm negative and FIV positive.

Cover Story


Sharing our Mission


he SPCA of the Triad has been rescuing, rehabilitating, spaying/neutering, and adopting animals that need a second chance, along with educating our community since May 1994. It is always about the animals, the unwanted, the abandoned, the neglected, the disappointed, and the injured. They are what drive us to keep moving, what keeps us going and motivated to continue every day of every week. What is our number one need in continuing to help these needy animals in our community- a new SPCA Shelter is the fulfillment and continuation of our Mission. We moved into the double wide we now call the SPCA Adoption and Outreach Center, on October 1, 2001. We were thrilled to have a place to call home! With special thanks to the generosity of Ellen and David Dick for the use of their land, we have made history. This building was originally started as the Triad Spay/Neuter Clinic, the first low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Guilford County. We spayed approximately 24,000 animals during the seven years the clinic was in operation. Things beyond our control changed for the spay/neuter clinic and we continued our mission of rescuing, spaying/neutering, rehabilitating and educating our community about animal welfare and reform. Our double wide is 15 years old. We can only put band-aids on repairs as our building is not a permanent structure and we do not own the land. This space also limits our intake of animals to 60, as directed by the NC Department of Agriculture. We are constantly full, not only from walk-ins, but word of mouth, rescues and from local shelters. Getting land is our single most important step to move forward and be able to offer greater hope to the animals and people of our community. If you have land, or know of someone who does and would be willing to donate approximately five acres, please get in touch with us. We would be thrilled to meet with you and present our



plans, which are already on paper. Remember, since we are a nonprofit, it would be a tax deductible donation. We work very hard to take each animal as it comes into the Center and give it a health checkup, vaccines, deworming, flea and heartworm preventative, spaying/neutering, microchips, bathing, grooming, personal time with the staff and volunteers, all the necessary things to get each animal into a loving home. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find loving homes, where you hope you have vetted enough to make sure this animal will be there a life time? The statistics are not good. Only one dog in eight (8) stays with one owner its entire life. Only one cat in 12 stays with one owner its entire life. It is hard work, especially in the small space we have to separate animals. We do it, but it would be so much easier and less stressful in a new State of the Art Facility. Every little important step helps keep disease away, making the animals healthy and ready for adoption sooner. A new facility would allow the animals more room while at the Center. Each dog needs an inside/outside run, each with a drain, so no animal would be near another’s waste. We have an agility course for the dogs to run and play daily, but certainly more space is needed. We have two open cat rooms, one with an outside “Catio”, where the cats can go outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air when the Center is open. But again, these areas are small and the cats would love a more open playground, with lots of running, jumping and hiding places. These open areas would help to minimize stress within our cat community. We desperately need a room with a floor to support a commercial washer, dryer and dishwasher. The floor at our Center will not allow us to have these items. Laundry takes a huge part of every day, as any soiled bedding must be washed and bleached. Keeping our animals clean and healthy is of major importance to us. We pride ourselves on keeping the Center clean for our animal friends, as well as visitors and volunteers.

October 2016 www.facebook.com/triadhappytails or text TRITAILS to 64842

The SPCA of the Triad is a local nonprofit organization. We have helped thousands of needy animals over the years. Our programs, driven by volunteers, are funded almost entirely by animal-loving donors. We receive no financial aid from local, state or federal governments, or from the ASPCA of New York (their funding stays in NY). We are not a chapter of the ASPCA. Your support in helping us to promote humane principles of animal welfare and alleviate fear and suffering in all animals is very much appreciated. Every animal deserves a healthy, happy life with lots of love and affection. All donations will be used to help the many animals in our care with whatever their needs, and to find forever, loving homes for them, and every donation will be a tax deductible donation for you.

Marshmallow. Born about 4-29-2007 Marshmallow is a big rumpy Manx girl. Did I mention big? She is incredibly sweet and loves to lay with her front end in your lap and be petted. She also likes to play with a feather wand toy. She does fine with Tailless Cat Rescue most other cats. She has lost 4 pounds since she came to us, and was able to have her teeth cleaned and a cyst removed from her shoulders. She is ready to go to a new home now that she’s at her ideal weight. She is already spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, has been wormed and treated for fleas, microchipped, and tested FeLV/FIV and heartworm negative.

This 6 month old little boy is as sweet as they come. He loves people and other dogs. We don’t know exactly what his breed is, but he looks like a large Miniature Pinscer, weighing in at around 30 lbs. He is a typical, active puppy who LOVES to learn. He is very smart and has learned basic commands, crate-training and house-breaking.

Vet’s Corner Dr. Brooke Clark received her B. S. in Biological Sciences at North Carolina State University and then graduated from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2016. A native of the Thomasville/High Point area, Dr. Clark is excited to have started her veterinary career at Northwood Animal Hospital. She loves the daily challenges of veterinary medicine and enjoys providing exceptional care to her patients and their owners. Her veterinary interests include dermatology and dental care. In her free time, Dr. Clark enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and playing with her two year old Rough Collie, Harper.

What’s the As the season begins to change in the coming months, many of our furry friends will present to their veterinary hospital with skin issues. Most common symptoms noted by owners may include itching, redness, swelling, and lesions noted on the skin. In addition, it is also important to note other abnormalities that may indicate your pet’s discomfort. Commonly, animals can cause selftrauma in the form of scratches or wounds known as excoriations, due to persistent scratching and chewing at a specific location. Other findings may include the loss of hair, and thickening and discoloration of the skin from chronic inflammation. Let’s briefly review the most common causes for itching, also known as pruritus, found with our pets

Parasitic Dermatitis One of the most common causes of dermatitis in our cats and dogs can be due to parasites, such as mites. The scabies mite causes pruritus, inflammation, as well as hair loss. These symptoms can occur on the lower legs, on the lower chest, the belly, the ears, as well as the top of the head. Scabies is easily spread through direct contact with an infected animal. Even though the mite prefers to live on dogs, it is known to be contagious to humans as well. Diagnosis is based on symptoms as well as examining microscopic samples taken from the skin and hair follicles. Another mite that can cause significant irritation of the ears, especially in cats, is the ear mite Otodectes cynotis. These mites cause severe head shaking and ear scratching. On examination, the ears are often noted to contain brown flaky debris, which is often used for microscopic examination to confirm the diagnosis. As with scabies, Otodectes is transmitted via direct contact with an infected animal. Other additional parasites include Demodex, which can cause a mild pruritus, Cheyletiella known as “walking dandruff ”, and fleas, which are covered next in the atopic dermatitis section of this article. 16

Atopic Dermatitis Atopic dermatitis is caused by hypersensitization to allergens that your pet is frequently exposed to. The top three sources for allergies in cats and dogs include flea allergies, environmental allergies, and food allergies. Symptoms associated with atopic dermatitis can include significant itching, redness, discoloration, and thickening of the skin. These symptoms are often localized at the ears, lower back, base of the tail, paws, and abdomen. Atopic dermatitis can occur seasonally or year-round. Determining the cause of the skin allergy can be challenging and often step-wise treatment is elected based on the response to therapy. Flea allergies are frequently to blame for the noted symptoms. Even though fleas can be frustrating to eliminate, several efficient options are available to treat both your pet and his/her environment. Fortunately in most cases of straightforward flea allergy dermatitis, treatment and prevention for fleas can significantly improve your pet’s skin without much complication. A second allergen that causes atopic dermatitis is associated with exposure to certain dietary ingredients. Food allergies are generally related to the protein source in your pet’s diet, such as the commonly used protein - chicken. If flea allergies have been eliminated as a cause for symptoms, a food trial may be offered to rule-out the chance that your dog has a food allergy. A food trial often involves a strict diet of only the new, or novel protein. Food trials can last for two-three months in length to monitor for improvements in your pet’s itching and redness. If improvement is noted, then the same, or a very similar diet is normally recommended for long-term management. Another significant cause for allergies is environmental allergens. Similar to humans, dogs and cats can become hypersensitive to pollens, grasses, and even house mites. Once a flea or food allergy has been eliminated as a possible cause for your pet’s irritation, an environmental allergen is normally suspected. If the environmental allergy is seasonal, intermittent treatment with antihistamines, glucocorticosteroids, and medicated shampoos can be an effective treatment. However, if the allergen has a year round exposure, constant steroid treatment can have harmful side effects and as a result, long-term medications such as cyclosporine or oclacitinib may be warranted.

Infectious Dermatitis Lastly, clinical symptoms of dermatitis can be commonly caused by infectious organisms such as bacteria or fungi. Often times these infections arise secondarily to a primary cause such as those listed earlier. If an infection is suspected, sampling the affected areas for testing may be indicated to prescribe the proper treatment. In conclusion, several primary causes such as the ones reviewed can result with your pet demonstrating symptoms related to dermatitis. It is important to speak with your veterinarian about your pet’s history and symptoms at his/ her visit to help direct the correct diagnosis and treatment to ensure your pet’s comfort and health.

Training Your Pet

Suggestions on Adding a New Family Member by Tina Buck


would like to give my suggestions on getting your first dog/puppy. Or, maybe you are considering a new breed that you haven’t had any experience with in the past. Our shelters and rescues are overrun with all breeds and there just aren’t enough people to go around. If I can give some tips on how to better pick the canine that is right for you and your family, then hopefully that is one less household being traumatized from the tough decisions that may have to be made. I know it seems simple, find a dog that is cute and friendly and that’s that, right? Honestly, it really does take a lot of patience, consistency, and effort to find the right dog that fits perfectly in your life. First, sit down as a family and discuss if this is something the whole family wants. If even just one family member is not on board, they may resent the fact the pup is even in the house, causing tension, which can in turn, cause some behavioral issues from the puppy. Make sure everyone is ready for their share of the responsibility. It takes everyone to be on the same page so the pup does not get confused when learning how you want him/ her to behave. Second, and possibly most important, research different breeds, their characteristics, and any health issues that may be associated with that particular breed. Make sure those characteristics mesh well with your family. If you are an active family that likes the outdoors and hiking and such…a Shi Tzu may not be the best breed for you. As you research, realize too that every dog is different within each breed. They all have their own personalities, just like each of us within our own family. Contact your local veterinarians to get pricing on different procedures and annual exams/vaccinations. Keep in mind that a dog is a lifelong commitment in sickness and health. Be sure you are financially and emotionally prepared for those particular health issues I mentioned earlier. Talk with different trainers in your area and find out what they offer and what training techniques they use. This will be especially helpful when getting a puppy/young dog. Make sure 18

Brandy and Maver ick, the varied family petstw. o of

you can take the time and have the finances to help teach your pup what he/she is expected to learn. Last, but certainly not least, talk to your apartment manager/ your landlord, and the insurance company to make sure a dog is allowed and what restrictions, if any, are in place. You don’t want to get a dog home only to find out he/she wasn’t allowed in the first place. While there are important decisions to be made in owning a dog, it is very fun and rewarding, when all things are taken into consideration. And please, if you are having trouble with something, ask for help. There are so many resources out there for our pets these days, from spay/neuter clinics, training, vaccine clinics, and so much more! There is sure to be information on ANY situation you may have. Tina Buck is a dog trainer in Burlington, NC. She is married to her wonderful husband, John, and they have two dogs, three cats, three chickens, and a leopard gecko. As you can see, she is an animal lover of all kinds, shapes, sizes and breeds. Tina has been training dogs professionally for over five years and started her own training business in April 2016. She comes to you and your dog in the comfort of your home for personal, customized training lessons. She will petsit in your home too!! With the start of her business she has come to know and work with several of the rescues in the area. She is one of the Adoption Coordinator Assistants for Old North Canine Rescue as well as their go to trainer for basic training, behavioral issues, newly adopted/fostered issues, etc. Give her a call today and see how she can help you and your dog become happier together!!

is a very active 10 year-old boy who is looking for his second-chance forever home. He loves running around, playing with all kinds of toys and being held. He is definitely a cuddlebug! Pharoh does well enough with other cats but would honestly prefer to be an only kitty so that he can have all of his owner’s love and attention! Can you offer a forever home for this sweet senior? Ask for ID# 1098. Call 336-438-2023, visit www.hsaconline.org or send an email to hsacinfo@gmail.com for more information. n


is a sweet, 16 month old female, calico cat. She is full of love and affection and is very relaxed. She still has a little bit of “playful kitten” in her if you bring out the cat toys, but she mostly just enjoys being loved on. She is very low maintenance, fully litter box trained and adores cuddling. She gets along great with humans of all ages, other cats, dogs and basically loves everyone and everything! Ask for ID# 2229.

Selina. Hi, my name is Selina! I am a Boxer and Pit Bull puppy who was recently rescued from Burlington Animal Services and now live in a foster home with the Humane Society of Alamance County. I do really well with cats as I have 5 feline siblings and I also have a 15 year old human sibling that I love hanging out with. In fact, due to my energy level, a forever home with older children is probably best for me. I love my toys and love to run so a fenced in back yard would be a great place for me to do those things! Ask for ID# 2461. Call 336-438-2023, visit www.hsaconline.org or send an email to hsacinfo@gmail.com for more information. n


Hi! My name is Dragonfruit! If you’re ready to keep up with me and adopt me, I’ll give you a run for your money! I’m one of four kittens and I’m the only boy of my litter. I love exploring new places and hanging out with people, both big and small! This is the only decent photo my foster mama could get of me, just to give you an idea of my energy--I’m the one up front with the dark tipped tail. Adopt me and make sure to bring catnip! Ask for ID# 2404. Call 336-438-2023, visit www.hsaconline.org or send an email to hsacinfo@gmail.com for more information. n


was surrendered into our care because his elderly owner could no longer care for him. Baby is nine years old and is diabetic. He requires insulin injections twice daily. He is also almost completely blind as well. Baby is very, very sweet. He is housebroken, loves to go on quiet walks and is quite content to lay in your lap while you work or relax. We do believe he would do well with another dog (of his size) for companionship in his forever home or a family who is more so present in the house every day and can provide him with the attention and care this handsome boy deserves. He loves the beach so a beachgoing family would be a plus! Ask for ID# 2390. Call 336-438-2023, visit www.hsaconline.org or send an email to hsacinfo@gmail.com for more information. n

Meet Jazzy.

Jazzy is a young and petite Boxer mix who is looking for an adventurous family to call her own. She is very smart and learns quickly. She does well with other dogs after proper, slow introductions and is also cat friendly. She is up-to-date on all vaccines and is already spayed. Jazzy is heartworm positive but will be treated for the condition and is expected to make a full recovery. She has quite a bit of energy so a house without young children is recommended. If you have been looking for a fun and happy four-legged friend to play with and take hiking with you, Jazzy is your girl! Ask for ID# 2374.

is a gentle giant. He can be intimidating at first glance, but one look into his eyes and you can see that he is just a gentle soul. He’s a bit of a goof ball at times and just so fun to be around. He is a little anxious in public right now but we are working on building his confidence. Nick would prefer Merit Pit Bull to be the only dog in the home.

Apparently Mia thought she was due for a summer vacation at the lake! She was found by a very nice man as a stray near Lake Townsend. He was nice enough to pick her up and tried to find her owners. He then contacted us for help. After weeks of trying to find her owners, we came up with nothing. Mia is now looking for her forever home! She is a Lab mix and about 9 months old. She is extremely smart and has already been taught some basic commands and tricks by her foster family! Mia definitely needs a home that wants a dog with some energy, as she loves to run and play. She gets along very well with the other dog in her foster home. She also does very well with kids. If you are interested in adopting Mia, visit www.reddogfarm.com.

Dee loves to sit beside you and wait patiently for pets. Tweeds is a “talker” and loves to tell you about his day, and he is especially talkative when it is feeding time.

Leroy & Potter are

is a very sweet pony that came to us through animal control. She had been put out in a pasture with two other horses and abandoned by their owner. Piper is doing great in her foster home and will make a fabulous companion animal. She is lame but our vet has performed a neurectomy (surgical removal of a segment of a nerve - used for relief of incurable lameness in a horse) on her right front foot to treat a bone spur on the heel of this foot. Piper has fully recovered from this procedure and had no complications. She happily walks around with her pasture mate and grazes, loves her treats and loves to be groomed by our volunteers. Piper is not sound and will need to go to a home for a companion animal or just a big pet.

litter mates that are 1-1/2 years old. Their owners had to surrender them when they realized the pigs were not “mini” pigs as advertised. Leroy and Potter are standard pot belly pig size that may grow up to 100 lbs. Our vet says they are very healthy and have been well cared for. Right now they are at an ideal weight. These two are social and great pets for someone able to care for them properly.

SPCA OF THE TRIAD 336.375.3222 / www.triadspca.org


Stella Dora

is a 1 year old Tabby with striking markings in a deep shade of orange. He and his brother, Alpha, recently were surrendered to the SPCA of the Triad. Originally, the 2 brothers were found behind a restaurant in Raleigh. Unfortunately, the people could no longer keep Alpha and Charlie, because they were violating their apartment lease. So now these sweet fellows are looking for a new home that they hope will be their forever home. When Charlie first arrived at the SPCA, he was very scared and confused, but slowly he is beginning to trust again. Could you show Charlie that it is possible for him to find a forever home? A home where he can feel safe, loved and cared for. Visit the SPCA center and meet Charlie today!

is a beautiful gray tabby with a white chest and paws. She is approximately 1 year old. Stella was recently found as a stray by some very caring people. They immediately noticed that she was very pregnant and became concerned for Stella’s future. Stella’s rescuers could not keep her, so they contacted the SPCA for help. Stella immediately went into the home of a caring foster family. Days later, little Stella gave birth to 4 adorable kittens. Time has passed and all of Stella’s kittens have gone on to their new homes. Stella is now spayed, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped. She is so loving and sweet. It’s hard to believe that so much love can fit into such a tiny creature.

Rascal is a 19 week old tabby kitten


Dee Dee

with a tiger-striped coat in shades of gray. Rascal’s mother, Lulu, was rescued in late March from a person that had way more cats than they could take care of. It wasn’t long before Lulu gave birth to Rascal and his 3 siblings. The little family has grown up in a loving foster home. The foster family has found a home for mother Lulu and 3 of the kittens. Now Rascal is looking for his forever home. Rascal has been neutered, microchipped and is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines. He is a playful kitten and sometimes mischievous, living up to his name. He loved to play with his brother Sammy. No household is complete without a cuddly feline to help make it a home. Could Rascal be the purrfect feline for you?

is a 4 year old Terrier mix who showed up out of the blue one night at the SPCA of the Triad. Someone drove a stake in the SPCA lawn and chained Dee Dee to it. Can you imagine how scared and confused she must have been that night? The people that she trusted abandoned her and left her chained up in a strange place. A note was left, giving her name and age, but nothing more. Dee Dee is spayed and microchipped. She is already up-to-date on her vaccines. Despite everything that she has been through, Dee Dee is a happy girl. She likes everything except for cats, which she has absolutely no tolerance for. Could you be the home that Dee Dee has been waiting for?

is a 2 year old beautiful female Boxer mix who loves to go walking and trail hiking. She has really progressed recently with leashtraining, house-breaking, and commands with the help of one of our dedicated volunteers. She is a very eager learner. To succeed in her training, Lady needs a structured home with a routine. Her adoption requires a fenced-in yard for exercise and playtime. She has a very sweet temperament but can be selective in getting along with other dogs. It truly just depends on the dog. When she finds the right match she plays for hours on end! She would be best matched with a younger dog that doesn’t mind her rough manner of play, but is not a match with house cats. You can bring your other canines out to our adoption center for a play date to make sure it will be a good fit for all. Call SPCA of the Triad at 375-3222 for more information.




is a 3-year old Boxer/ Lab mix who recently came to us from another rescue that was closing. Now at his second rescue, Jethro would like nothing better than to find a family to call his very own. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and microchipped. He is full of sweetness and tail wags. He is smart and would pick up training quickly. Jethro also likes to play. After he eats, he likes to flip his bowl over and play with it like it’s a hockey puck. Sweet, smart and playful, Jethro even does well with cats. He’s a bit of an escape artist, so a fenced back yard will not be a good idea for Jethro. Instead he will need regular walks for exercise. Jethro needs a second chance at the life he knows he really deserves. Call SPCA of the Triad at 375-3222 for more information. n

is an 8 or 9 year old Golden mix with the enthusiasm of a much younger fella! Fella has been gaining weight at his foster home since arriving at just 51 pounds on his medium size frame. He’s blind in one eye and has severe cataracts in the other and it is expected he will be completely blind over the next year. He makes his way around remarkably well, especially after he learns his surroundings (which he does quickly). He has won over Triad Golden Retriever Rescue everyone he’s met with his charm and easygoing manner. He frequently entertains himself with his toys and prefers to be close to his peeps most of the time. Fella can’t do steps without some difficulty so he needs to be in a home where he could live on one floor and get outside and back in without too much difficulty. He loves to be outside in the sun! A fenced in yard with a deck would make him very happy. Fella needs to be taken to regular medical appointments to measure his eye pressure for glaucoma, which can become painful. He’s a happy dog who will keep you smiling to and from the vets office. For more information about adopting Fella, email adopt@tgrr.org. n

Rufus is seven years old and weighs 10 lbs. He is house-trained and gets along with the other fosters. He loves to snuggle under a blanket and he loves to play. He likes to growl if he feels that you are disturbing him but has never shown any aggression. He walks well on a leash and gets along with older children but does not like a lot of Chihuahua Rescue commotion. He just wants to be with you. He is a little shy when he first meets new people but if you are patient with him, he will warm up and not want to leave your side. He is neutered, current on shots and on heartworm preventative. www.chihuahua-rescue.org/chihuahuas-for-adoption/online-application/, to fill out an application for Rufus. n

Morgan came to GSRA from the Humane Society of Greenwood, SC. A sweet Southern gentleman, he was a stray that took forever to catch. Morgan seems to be a blank canvas with tons of potential. He’s already crate and house-trained, is working on his manners, and is trying so hard to learn everything all at once! Super smart, Morgan will require an owner with breed experience.

is almost 2 years old and now she finds herself looking for a new home after her previous owner left her at the shelter.

is a very energetic boy who is ready to get a chance at the life he’s been dreaming of. Such a happy boy, Bruno’s enthusiasm for life has a way of spreading to everyone around him. At nearly 60 pounds, he is a big boy that is very strong. His previous owner did not take the time to teach him basic doggie manners such as how to walk on a leash or not to jump on people so he needs a family willing to help him blossom into the great dog that we know he can be. His adoption fee is $55 and includes his neuter, vaccinations, and microchip.

hasn’t known many people who have loved her as much as she loves them. Coming in as a scared and very skinny stray, life hasn’t been too kind to this sweet girl. A lick on your hand, a cock of her head – she doesn’t even know she’s being cute. All she is trying to say is, “Thank you. Thank you for showing me love.” Brooke is 2 years old and there’s no telling how long she was on the streets. She needs a home with older children and would prefer to be the only dog.

Bubba is loving and enjoys attention. Almost two years old, he also likes playing with his doggy pals. The original Karl Ravech is a journalist and baseball host for ESPN. Our Karl doesn’t talk much; he would rather show his athletic Greyhound Friends of NC prowess as he races the field checking for tossed tennis balls. He will also make a terrific best friend and fellow couch potato. To find out about adopting Bubba, contact James at Greyhound Friends of NC at 336-643-0233. n

FCAP’s 20 years of Fix’n Feral Cats Join us for “Cats on Tap!”, Thursday, October 13, (6:00 pm) at Preyer Brewing Company.


eral cats, community cats, free roaming cats or stray cats -whatever moniker you choose -- they are often nearby. These cats exist because people do not spay/ neuter their cats and abandon them. All cats should be spayed and neutered by 4 months of age. Otherwise, cats naturally form colonies where a food source can be found. Without spaying/neutering they continue to over populate. Twenty years ago, the Feral Cat Assistance Program (FCAP) organized to practice and promote Trap Neuter Return (TNR), the ONLY HUMANE method of cat population control. Rounding up cats and killing them is not an effective nor humane process. Low cost mandatory sterilization, vaccination and public education emphasizing responsible pet ownership is the answer.

FCAP provides TNR services to cat colony caregivers regardless of residency or income. FCAP operates with private donations and is not funded by any government agency. With the help of dedicated volunteer veterinarians, FCAP hosts monthly sterilization and vaccination clinics for feral cats. Through the years FCAP has spayed/neutered/vaccinated over 15,000 cats, stabilizing healthy feral cat colonies. FCAP educates on how to trap, manage and control cat populations. Results? Healthy and vaccinated cat colonies that will not reproduce. This year, FCAP celebrates 20 years of promoting TNR! Join our celebrations and meet FCAP volunteers while attending “Cats On Tap”, Thursday, October 13th, starting at 6:00 pm at the Preyer Brewing Company. Enjoy great craft beers, food, raffles and a silent auction. All proceeds support monthly FCAP veterinary TNR clinics. www.triadhappytails.com October 2016

Mason loves to play with everyone and every dog he meets and is enjoying his time at doggy daycare. Mason will love a family that can give him plenty of exercise, rub his belly, and one that is willing to reinforce basic training or he will try to run the house for you. Mason likes to explore outside and would like to learn how to hunt, but would also appreciate someone who will take him running and out to play fetch. He is a professional counter surfer, alarm system, and digger, so be prepared to work on training and Tarheel Weimrescue channeling energy appropriately so he can retire these behaviors.

ince 2011, arcBARKS Dog Treat Company has produced amazing all natural handmade dog treats called Peanut Butter Barkers and to the uninitiated that is all they do. But…for people in the know, arcBARKS is so much more. Understand, arcBARKS Dog Treat Company is not just some ordinary dog treat manufacturer, rather it is engaged in a much more substantial purpose. arcBARKS is actually a job training program founded by The Arc of Greensboro for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It was created in response to an increasing need for post high school options for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Its goal is to create a self-funding program that provides vocational training in the real world setting of a functioning dog treat bakery. arcBARKS has come a long way since it was founded nearly five years ago. Originally it was known as Horizon Doggie Treat Company when it was founded in the spring of 2011 with a grant from the Bryan Foundation. Initially, the program was located in a church basement and only operated three days a week with six trainees enrolled. In January of 2012, the program moved to its current location at 2823-C Spring Garden Street, Greensboro and expanded to a five day a week program with nearly 20 trainees enrolled in the program. This rapid growth was thanks to the strong support of the community, growing interest in the program, and the hard work of parents, volunteers, and the staff of the Arc of Greensboro. With the donations of a commercial double convection oven and an industrial mixer, dog treat production increased

…so much more than a dog treat manufacturer, it’s a place where people come to learn vocational and life skills. But, equally important, is the camaraderie, respect, and social interaction they find at the bakery. dramatically. About this time, one of the trainees came up with the name arcBARKS, and the rest was history! In the fall of 2012, The Fresh Market launched the sale of arcBARKS in several of their local stores. This increased visibility led to the eventual launch of arcBARKS in Lowes Food stores across the state in the late spring of 2013. Despite these early successes, arcBARKS continues to partner with different organizations in the community and develop new products. Last year, a joint venture with Natty Greene’s Brewery led to the creation of “Brew Barkers” – treats that contain some of the spent grains from the brewing process. arcBARKS obtained all necessary state certifications and began selling these treats in conjunction with Natty Greene’s in the fall of 2015. This fall arcBARKS is planning to introduce a new pumpkin treat that is sure to be a big hit! arcBARKS success in business over the last several years has been remarkable, but even more remarkable is the development of the job training program component of the operation. The program has expanded thanks to the help of devoted parents and volunteers, community businesses, local universities, and the support of arcBARKS enthusiastic customers. All of their consistent support

Each trainee or “chef ” as they are known at arcBARKS works together in harmony, giving each other encouragement and help when needed to complete their job duties.

and hard work has helped refine the program into the model for success that it is today. In order to understand how exceptional this achievement is, one only has to observe an average day at arcBARKS storefront on Spring Garden Street in Greensboro. It’s Wednesday morning on a hot summer day when arcBARKS trainees start arriving, eager and ready to get to work making dog treats. By the time all of the trainees are at arcBARKS the atmosphere is lively and energetic. Everyone is ready to start the day and knows exactly what they will be working on thanks to the unique visual schedules placed at each person’s station. Each trainee or “chef ” as they are known at arcBARKS works together in harmony, giving each other encouragement and help when needed to complete their job duties. This morning one of arcBARKS newest chefs, Seth is in charge of making their Peanut Butter Barker dough recipe. Seth expertly follows the visual instructions posted by the mixer, adding fresh ground peanut butter, oil, and water to make a creamy colored paste. Once mixed to the appropriate consistency he adds in the dry ingredients; flour and rolled oats, and mixes them until the dough is formed and ready to be distributed. Once Seth has made the dough, each of the chefs: Timothy Jr., Jordan, John, Danny, and Addie come forward to get fresh dough. They each use arcBARKS newest tool, a hand crank dough sheeter that transforms a portion of dough into the perfect thickness and shape for cutting dog treats.

Today while the other chefs are making dog treats, two other chefs, Zeb and Erin, are engaged in an equally important task, weighing out and packaging the finished product. They are weighing out seven-ounce portions of the dog treats on digital scales and then packaging them into sealable bags. That afternoon Danny, Jordan, and John demonstrate together how they assemble cardboard cartons and place the weighed bags of treats in them for an order. By the end of the afternoon, the chefs have boxed dozens of treats for delivery to Bestway Grocery, Cobb Animal Clinic, Lowes Foods, The Fresh Market and many other local businesses. In fact, they have done so much work that boxes are stacked high into pyramids at their workstations. By observing just a few hours of their day you can see how much they learn from the staff, but more importantly each other. arcBARKS is a place where adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities come to learn vocational and life skills, but equally important is the camaraderie, respect, and social interaction they find at the bakery. As the day winds down and chefs begin to leave, one only has to look at their smiling faces and the pride they have as they walk out the door to know that this is an exceptional place indeed.
