A pup named Chanel arrived at the Suncoast Humane Society shelter on Friday, January 29 and went into labor thirty minutes later. Chanel and her four puppies (two girls and two boys) are staying at a foster home right now. In March, the public will have an opportunity to bid on naming Chanel’s puppies. The puppies and Chanel will be available to adopt in eight weeks, but right now your support is needed to cover vaccines, spay/neuter, heartworm prevention, deworming, a nutritious diet and more. Please consider donating for their care. Visit www.humane.org if you would like to help Chanel and her puppies.

Furry Scurry 5K
The Conservancy and Community Trust of South Gulf Cove would like to welcome you to the first South Gulf Cove CCT Furry Scurry 5K Walk/Run scheduled for Saturday, February 13, 8 to 11am. All ages are welcome to participate in this dog-friendly walk/run in the South Gulf Cove community. There will be a special 1.5-mile course for those dog walkers who feel the 3.1-mile course is a little more than their pet can manage. The Furry Scurry 5K cost is $35 and the 1.5-mile Mutt Strut is $25 and includes a race t-shirt and doggie bandana. This chip-timed event will benefit local animal shelters and rescues. All the proceeds after expenses will be donated to EARS (Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary,) Suncoast Humane Society, German Shepherd Rescue in Punta Gorda and the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida. There will also be a truck at the race to accept supplies and food donations for the animal shelters.
