Rescue Our Furry Friends

Centre Count y Dair y Princess Greetings Everyone! Unfortunately this will be the last article I will write as Centre County Dairy Princess. On May 31st my reign will be ending, and a new young lady will be given this honor. Although my reign is ending, my passion and dedication I have for the dairy industry will continue to grow. Tradition and history are a source of pride for the dairy farmers of Pennsylvania. 99% of Pennsylvania dairy farms are family owned and operated, as is my family farm. Promotion has been a part of my family and dairy farm for the last 22 years. My five sisters and I have all represented Centre County and Pennsylvania as dairy princesses. We used our voice to allow our story to be heard. We have done thousands of promotions, traveling thousands of miles; all to promote an industry we hold close to our hearts. My sisters and I do not need a crown to promote. We will continue to tell our story with the same drive and passion we had for the past 22 years. We are proud of and proud to promote our family farm and all Pennsylvania dairy farms. I am enclosing one last

Rescue received a call a few weeks ago about this sweet cat that was in need of some medical attention. Even though we are very limited in space, we always try to help ones who are injured and need immediate treatment. Edward had a severely broken front leg, which required surgery. The surgery to save his leg was a success and he is doing well with his recovery. We are asking for donations to help with his surgery expenses ($1200), which are very costly to a small rescue. Edward is a very sweet cat and we are thankful that we were able to help him, as we wish we could help them all. As always, we are extremely thankful for the support we get from others who care as much as we do for our animals in need. If you can help with Edward’s surgery expenses, please make checks payable to ROFF, and mail them to or drop them off at ROFF Headquarters, 133 North Walnut Street, Burnham, PA 17009, indicating that the money is for Edward. You Axel

may also drop off your donation at Big Valley Beverage in Reedsville. Thank you! “Hey there…look at me! I’m Axel! I’m so dog-gone happy that ROFF has rescued me, that my tail is blurry when my picture is taken. But, I could be happier if you would adopt me. I’m in a foster home right now and I get along great with my dog friends. I even like the cats, but I do like to chase them sometimes. I’m just playing, you know. The humans say that I have all my shots and I’m neutered, whatever that is, plus I’m housebroken and crate trained. I’m an American bulldog and boxer mix, very lovable, and just around 1 ½ years old. So please come and visit me. You’ll see for yourself that I would be a great companion.” Magic

“I’m Magic. I guess I was named for the common phrase “Black Magic,” since I’m all black. That doesn’t mean that I am bad luck, even though I’ve had a bit of bad luck myself. You see, my owner moved and couldn’t take me along. I’m about 4 years old, and I love playing with the kittens that I’m living with right now. I have “purr”sonality plus, so come over and find out how well I would fit into your family.” Applications can be found on , or call 877-9337633. Our next fund-raising event will take place in front of WalMart on Saturday, May 3rd from 10am to 6pm. We look forward to seeing you there! a

Until they all have homes…
