Peo­ple who would like to take part can ei­ther walk their own dog or walk one of the shel­ter’s dogs. The sug­gested do­na­tion is $25 per fam­ily, how­ever, peo­ple can also get friends and fam­ily to help spon­sor their walk by get­ting a pledge form by email­ing the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety at fron­tieran­i­mal­so­ci­ety@gmail.com. A lunch will fol­low the walk.

“It’s been a long, hard win­ter and we’re run­ning low on funds. A typ­i­cal heat­ing bill dur­ing the cold months is about $1,400,” ex­plained the So­ci­ety’s founder and pres­i­dent, Joyce Dekker. “What’s won­der­ful is that we have a lot of great vol­un­teers now; that’s made a big dif­fer­ence,” she added.

Peo­ple are al­ways wel­come to drop off sup­plies at the shel­ter, such as cat food, dog food, old blan­kets and tow­els, and clean­ing prod­ucts. For more in­for­ma­tion about the Dog Walk, call Brenda at 819 876-7747. So­ci­ety look­ing for stor­age space

The Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety is also look­ing for a large space to amass, store and then sell garage sale items for their an­nual garage sale. An empty barn any­where in the area would be the ideal spot. “We’re look­ing for a space so we can do it all un­der one roof,” ex­plained Mrs. Dekker.
