Help needed in lo­cat­ing a stray dog. “Elvis” is a large Black dog likely Rot­tweiler/ Lab cross. He had been in and around the Stan­dard area since early Oct. In Jan a res­cue mis­sion started to cap­ture him so that AARCS (Al­berta An­i­mal Res­cue Crew So­ci­ety) could pro­vide him with the med­i­cal at­ten­tion he needs and re-home him to a suit­able for­ever home. Elvis walks with a dis­tinc­tive limp as he is miss­ing one of his hind feet. He had some cuts on him that we were able to see via wildlife cam­era’s we had set up at a trap. We man­aged to get medicine in food for him to clear those up. How­ever he has evaded cap­ture thus far. He is very timid around peo­ple and of­ten trav­els at night. He avoids hu­man con­tact and will run if ap­proached. He had found shel­ter in an aban­doned stack of bales over the winter. As of Fri­day, April 15 he has not been back for his daily feed­ing. We know he likes to travel with the weather be­ing as it is we are hop­ing he has found al­ter­na­tive shel­ter and food source. He lived off of garbage and road­kill un­til we started feed­ing him in Jan­uary at which time he gave up on garbage. If any­one has seen him can you please call or text 403-934-7618 so we can re­sume the res­cue mis­sion, or know if he is still in the area and alive. Thank you for your as­sis­tance.

An­nual ceme­tery clean up is June 6 at 5 pm. Please mark this on your cal­en­dar.

Re­porters for May are Carey Taubert 403-787-3500 and Linda Moczul­ski 403-7872257.
