GO!  Got a pet that’s a picky eater? Has dandruff or a dull coat? Food allergies or sensitivities? Feeding your dog or cat the right premium-quality food can be the solution to many issues. GO!™ recipes were created especially for pets who are fussy about their food, who need a grain free or higher protein diet, and for those requiring a recipe with unique proteins, or a limited number of ingredients. And because we all want our pets to stay healthy and happy, we also have a recipe which provides whole body preventative care, for life!

NOW  It’s no surprise that cats love the freshness of NOW FRESH™ cat food. It’s so fresh, it’s like eating off the kitchen counter (down, girl). We pack NOW FRESH™ grain free cat food full of nutritious ingredients like 100% market-fresh meat or fish. 100% fresh Omega 3 and 6 oils from coconuts and canola. Wholesome berries, fruits and veggies such as peas, spinach, cranberries, pumpkin, blackberries, alfalfa sprouts, kelp, lentils and carrots. Yum!


 

Vehicle Heat

No-hot-pets-poster-pet-friendly-business.jpg

Cars can become death traps in 10 minutes
“People don’t realize just how quickly their cars can become death traps for their pets – it can take as little as 10 minutes for the vehicle to reach temperatures where the animal can suffer irreparable brain damage or death,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA.

“We know that if people are taking their pets with them, it’s because they love them and want to spend time with them, but we really do encourage pet guardians to please, leave their pets at home when they’re going out in the car.”

What to do if you see a dog in distress in a parked vehicle:

Note the license plate and vehicle information and ask managers of nearby businesses to page the owner to return to their vehicle immediately;

Is the animal in distress? Call your local animal control agency, police, or the BC SPCA hotline at 1-855-622-7722 as soon as possible. Note: It is illegal for members of the public to break a window to access the vehicle themselves; only RCMP and Special Provincial Constables of the BC SPCA can lawfully enter a vehicle. SPCA branch staff and volunteers cannot enter vehicles.

Keep emergency supplies – bottled water, a small bowl, a towel that can be soaked in water- in your car so that you help hydrate an animal (if a window has been left open) while you wait for emergency response; a battery-powered fan from a dollar store also can be handy to circulate air.

4H Young Riders Fundraiser

4H Riders Full Poster.jpg

The Vernon Young Rider's group consists of kids aged 7-20, who are doing projects on horse, dog and photography.  Each of the kids are learning responsibility, and to be confident in their community. We hope that by doing a fundraiser, it will help with the costs of lessons for these projects as well as club fee's and expenses.

The 4-H program provides young people with an opportunity to learn how to become productive, self-assured adults who can make their community and country a good place in which to live. This is fostered through project and program work, experiences with their 4-H club members and leaders and their participation in district, regional and even provincial programs.

The goal of the 4-H program is youth development. The objectives of 4-H clubs are knowledge, leadership, citizenship and personal development.

4-H is an organization dedicated to young people. The purpose of the 4-H program is to prepare girls and boys for their future as adult citizens. 4-H stands for head, heart, hands and health. The 4-H pledge describes the significance of the four H's:

I pledge:

My HEAD to clearer thinking,

My HEART to greater loyalty,

My HANDS to larger service,

My HEALTH to better living,

For my Club, my Community and My Country.
