Pet of the Month: Luke’s Furry Friends – Jackson!

Published

on

HUMANE SOCIETY OF WARREN COUNTY

Meet Jackson, a 7-8 year old Norwegian Ridgeback mix who has been chosen for our February Warren County sponsored Pet of the Month. Jackson is house trained and knows a few commands like sit & paw! He is good with children, but not other animals. Last year Jackson was the recipient of a special ear surgery. The Humane Society sponsored (thanks to donations) this surgery due to the number of ear infections this handsome guy was experiencing. We would all love to see Jackson find a wonderful forever home!

Jackson is current on all of his shots and is already neutered. Adoption fee is sponsored this month. Stop out and take some time to visit with Jackson. You never know, he might be a perfect fit for you or your family! Be sure to give him a few minutes to settle down after he first meets you. He is full of so much excitement but will calm down quickly, melting into your lap! (If I didn’t already have a house full of animals, I would have let Jackson follow me out to my car and hop in like he wanted to. – Jen)

Students from the middle school MORE Program help support the Thermal Shelter this week

Published

on

Photo and video by MORE students and Jennifer Avery, Jenspirations.

The host location for this past week was the Front Royal Presbyterian Church. One special church volunteer actually spent her birthday preparing food at the shelter and shared her birthday cake with guests!

The MORE Program (after school program for Warren County and Skyline Middle School students) took a turn preparing dinner for the shelter on one of the nights. They also decorated paper bags for the shelter guests to use for their packed lunches. Included in each bag was an inspirational note. The kids have been working on a similar project (Project Positive through the I’m Just Me Movement) for fellow students. It was great to see them realize, grownups can use a positive thought too!

A night at the Thermal Shelter of Front Royal

Published

on

The Thermal Shelter of Front Royal has been in full swing this winter since December 22nd serving our local area. This year they are fortunate enough to have a trailer to help move supplies from each location after their stay. They also are so excited to have a donated van that provides transportation for the guests each day.

In this video we captured a few moments of “A night at the Thermal Shelter of Front Royal.” This evening the host location was Dynamic Life. Be sure to watch to the end! A few of the volunteers and guests smile and laugh as they do the chicken dance as a penalty for losing at the card game UNO.

 

Feel a call to serve and get involved? At the moment, one of the biggest needs is funding. Every evening there are 2 paid trained night managers on duty, which is the biggest expense. Donations can be sent on PayPal using ThermalShelterofFR@gmail.com or checks mailed to PO Box 454 Front Royal, Va 22630. Currently there is a 7K challenge to help the shelter remain open through the end of March. Follow the Thermal Shelter of Front Royal on Facebook for more information.
