Sorry to inform everyone the Youth Equine Clinic has been cancelled due to lack of entries which may be a reflection on the recent scare of EHV-1 outbreak. No reschedule. A sincere thank you to all the friends that showed outward support of the Shelter Fundraiser.
The Buchanan County Animal Shelter will hold our annual fundraiser "SCRAP FOR STRAYS" on Saturday, June 27, 2015 at Norbys Distribution, (formerly Walmart) 111 20th Ave SW, Independence IA from 8:00 AM until 2:00 PM.
Scrap metal accepted. No TV's or computer towers. Arrangements can be made to pick up large loads. Contact Gary at 319 827-1810 for more information.
All proceeds will go to the Buchanan County Animal Shelter!
Start gathering your old appliances and scrap metal to help us raise money for the shelter!
Here's an easy and free way to help the shelter! Using your smartphone, go to www.WoofTrax.com to download their free app. Every time you walk your dog, use the app, pick the Buchanan County Animal Shelter and we will get money for every mile walked! Don't have a dog? The app lets you create one to walk with you! If you don't have a smart phone, walk with a friend who does and you can both help the shelter! So lets all walk for the animals!
We would like to challenge all of our supporters to help as we raise funds for the final stage of our shelter. We would like to have a photo and a personalized story about the great pets that have enriched your life to put in a scrapbook that will be displayed in the reception area of the shelter. We are also asking at this time, if it is financially possible, to consider donating $1.00 per pet or whatever you are comfortable giving to this great cause. We can't wait to hear from you, we know there are a lot of great stories out there!
We have BuCoAS Sweatshirts and T-Shirts for sale in Adult and Youth sizes. Please call 319-827-2773 to inquire about colors and sizes available or stop by the Jesup Vet Clinic! Our sweatshirts are $30.00 and Adult Tee's are $15.00. This is a great way to support the Shelter!
Who has THRIVENT CHOICE DOLLARS? We are approved to receive Thrivent for Lutherans Choice Dollars! If you have Thrivent investments or life insurance policies - you are receiving Choice Dollars to be used toward a charity. Send your Choice Dollars online by going to the Thrivent website, get in the Choice Dollars page and type in Buchanan. Only that. It will bring up 3 options - just click on our Shelter name. Or you can type in Jesup, IA. Do not fill out all the boxes - it slows the system down and makes it difficult to search for our Shelter to designate your dollars to. Trouble - call 800-847-4836 and say Operator. THANK YOU for sending your charity dollars!
You can make a donation to the Shelter by getting rid of IRON or METAL! Take it to Schafer's Iron & Metal Recycling at 1965 Otterville Blvd. in Independence - tell TROY your load should be donated to the Buchanan Co Animal Shelter.
