Lily is a 2-3 year old Hound/Rottweiler mix girl who just loves people! This high energy girl is looking for someone to teach her the finer points of “how to dog” like a lady - because right now she pulls on a leash like a Mack truck! But she’s bouncy and fun and eager to learn, so she’s sure to bring smiles along the way! Lily really likes some dogs and plays great with them, but she’s choosy about her doggie companions. If you have an existing dog, a meet and greet would be needed to see if the chemistry is right between them. We think that Lily would do best in a home without small animals (like cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc.). She seems to want to eat them. She does love all people, but we recommend a home without small children just because she’s so bouncy and high energy. Oh hey–Lily appears to be house trained! She keeps a clean kennel, bless her. Is a super friendly dog with lots of bounce and a nose for happiness right for you? Stop in to meet Lily today! Adopt Lily With a partial sponsorship, Lily’s adoption fee is now $75 and she’s spayed, microchipped, and current on her vaccines. Lily Looking For A Furrever Home MCSPCA DONATE TODAY We have restructured the newsletter to bring you more up to date news on what is happening at the shelter and our upcoming fundraisers. At the Medina County SPCA we are committed to helping as many lives as we can. You will now see stories of the lives we have saved, as well as adoptable animals still waiting for their chance at a forever home. We hope you enjoy our new format. Our Commitment
  2. 2. SHELTERNEWS Miranda Little Miranda is not 100% sure people won’t eat her! She is just a bit shy. All she needs is for someone to show her that love is real and that she will be part of their forever family. Come in and meet Miranda at the MCSPCA. The Shelters Perspective Medina County SPCA Tracey Miller Director of Operations puppies can be born from one unsprayed female dog and her offspring in seven years. The statistics for cats is even more staggering. One fertile cat can produce an average of three litters in one year, which is between four and six kittens per litter. Up to 4,948 kittens can be born from one unsprayed female cat and her offspring in seven years. Those numbers alone should be a wakeup call for every pet owner. Other benefits of spaying and neutering come from the positive behavior changes that you will find with both dogs and cats after they have been altered. Intact male dogs represent 80% of the dogs that show dominance aggression. 75% of intact male dogs are reported in dog bite incidents. Protecting your family along with your pet is a key role that you play as an animal owner and altering your animal does just that. Additionally, sterilizing your cat or dog reduces their natural urge to roam. It also is known to increase the average lifespan of both dogs and cats by providing them with an additional benefit of a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers. The facts can’t be disputed that neutering and spaying is a benefit to every pet and something that each animal owner should do. I also want to point out that these benefits are not limited to just dogs and cats. We see overpopulation problems with each animal category whether it be with horses, bunnies, goats, etc. As a responsible pet owner, it is within your power to change the overpopulation problem and I am urging you to do the right thing and get your animals spayed and neutered today. When it comes to important topics for me to write about, I can’t think of one that is higher on my list than spaying and neutering your pets. The reproductive life of every animal is long and without intervention, many animals breed continuing the string of unwanted animals. Those animals end up at the door steps of shelters, just like the Medina County SPCA. The Humane Society of the United States is reporting that 2.4 adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized each year in the United States because a home can’t be found for them. The majority of these high numbers are due to unplanned litters that would have been prevented by spaying and neutering. For the people that believe that spaying or neutering their one dog or one cat will not make a difference in this epidemic, they need to be fully aware of what one non-altered animal can do. An unaltered dog can produce an average of two litters in one year, which will equal six to ten puppies for each litter.

  3. 3. dedicatedHearts Every year at the Animal Affair Dinner and Auction, the MCSPCA takes time to recognize a person that has gone above and beyond in their volunteering, by naming them the Volunteer of the Year. Although we all understand that it takes a village to provide the services to the animals that are needed daily, one person was mentioned over and over for the person that the 2016 award should go to: Kathy Crumbaker. Kathy started at the shelter three years ago after adopting her first dog, Rocky. She wanted to do more for the shelter, so she took the General Volunteering Class and began as many people do, by cleaning cat cages. After getting used to the inner workings of the shelter, Kathy was drawn to working with the dogs. So, she took the Dog Orientation class and began cleaning cages and walking the dogs. “I enjoy working with the dogs”, commented Kathy. “Although the dogs are my favorite, I will help with the cats if necessary. I’ll do whatever needs to be done. Another job that I do is to take cats to Petco in Strongsville. We get a lot of cats adopted from there, so it is important to make sure we keep a variety of cats there for the public to adopt.” When asked what Kathy’s favorite part of the shelter is, Kathy has no problems with that answer. “It’s the animals. They are the most important. I also have great respect for the staff. Everyone is so dedicated and caring.” Kathy tries to spend as much time as she can at the shelter and since adopting Rocky, she has also adopted Angel and Caroline. Sadly, senior dog Caroline was only with Kathy for a year and a half, but providing a loving home for Caroline during that time, was a precious gift Kathy was happy to give her. “When I am not at the shelter, my free time is spent outside being with my dogs, mowing or gardening”, replied Kathy. “I retired from Westfield Insurance where I worked in the DedicatedHearts VolunteerofYear: KathyCrumbaker mailroom for eleven years. Prior to that I spent thirty years as a Lab Tech at Lodi Hospital.” There is no doubt that everyone at the MCSPCA is happy that Kathy spends her free time helping the animals at the shelter. Kathy is also quick to mention how important it is for more people to lend a hand at the shelter. “There is always a lot to do at the shelter and behind the scenes. If anyone is interested in volunteering, it is a fantastic opportunity to help animals and it is very rewarding. I’m proud to be part of the MCSPCA.”. From all of us at the MCSPCA, we would like to congratulate Kathy on being named the 2016 Volunteer of the Year. We appreciate your terrific attitude and helpful hands.

  8. 8. wiskers&Wags Sasha Looking For A Furrever Home MCSPCA DONATE TODAY I Facebookfanatics Find us on Facebook at Medina County SPCA! Comment, like and share our pet stories so more people can see our adoptable pets. FACEBOOKFANATICSWANTED Are you a Facebook fanatic? You know, someone that is always putting emoji’s and comments on people’s Facebook posts. If you are one of those people, we need you to help us boost our exposure level by either commenting or putting an emoji in the comment section of posts on the Medina County SPCA Facebook page. Just liking a post does not do this, so that’s why it is important to put something in the comment section. Getting more exposure, means more dogs and cats can find a furrever home. So get that mouse going! I thought I was okay. Then I came here. I’m not okay. There’s a problem with my heart. It turns out, there’s a big, empty space in it. Oh, it beats steadily and pumps blood and all that, but there’s something missing. I didn’t even know about the empty space until I saw the other cats here. People come in and pet them, play with them, and sometimes, one of them goes to a new home. And I watch those cats - you can see it when it happens. When they know. They’re going home! They’re going to be loved! It changes them. And every time I see it, I can feel that empty space in my heart and it aches. Did those other cats have this feeling, too? I don’t know. Maybe. But I’ll bet you all the mice in the world that getting someone to love - and who loves you - will fill that space and then some! So, I’m hoping that someday, MY person comes in. And they see me, and pet me, and play with me. And they hear my small, quiet purr and then they say, “Would you like to come home with me?” And my answer will be, “YES! Yes, please!” And just like that, my heart will be fixed. The empty space will be gone and filled with love. Enough love to overflow and maybe fill some of the empty space in my new person’s heart, too! So, if you know of someone who is looking for a nice cat like me - very friendly and sweet, playful and fun, with a quiet little purr, and a heart with an empty space that needs to be filled - can you please send them my way? Tell them to ask for Sasha - that’s me! Thank you! (And my heart thanks you, too!)

  10. 10. One of the main focuses of the work that the MCSPCA provides is proper placement for all the animals we rescue. Some behaviors that are displayed in the shelter environment are due to the stress it causes the animal. In the case of Ava, her growling was most likely due to how frightened she was and her instinctive reaction to ward off threats by growling. Thankfully, the staff at the MCSPCA could take Ava in and give her the chance at a forever home with Nicole, where she is loved and feels protected. This work can only be provided when funds permit. Please consider donating to the MCSPCA to help more animals that are in need. You can call the shelter at 330-723-7722 for more information about BlakeBlake is what we call a survivor. He’s a great cat and would love for you to come adopt him today! He was born in August of 2012. He gets along wonderfully with cats and dogs. FUTUREEVENTSHappy Tails Ava Ava now lives with a fourteen-year-old beagle named Mr. Sir and a seven-year-old cat named Binx. One thing that many people don’t know about the MCSPCA is that we will take in dogs and cats from other shelters. This can be for a myriad of reasons like overcrowding, euthanasia risk or simply because one shelter feels another shelter would be better suited to find an animal a forever home. This is the case of Ava, a six-month-old puppy that was found wandering the streets of Summit County. Ava was taken to the Summit County Dog Pound and was quickly placed in isolation for growling at the workers. Luckily a staff member from the dog pound thought Ava might be young enough to be rehabilitated and called the MCSPCA to see if they would take her. That is when the ball started rolling to help Ava. Ava was picked up by the MCSPCA where she was immediately spayed and brought up to date on all of her shots. Shortly thereafter Ava was greeted by volunteer Nicole Smart. “I have been volunteering with the MCSPCA for the past five months”, said Nicole. “I was at the shelter, when one of the staff told me that I needed to see the puppy that just arrived. They warned me to move slowly around her, since she had the tendency of growling. I slowly went into her cage and sat with her. Ava crawled into my lap and that was all it took.” After such a wonderful first meeting Nicole could think of nothing else, but adopting Ava. “The MCSPCA is such a wonderful place to adopt from”, said Nicole. “They really take care of their animals and want to make sure each pet goes to the best home possible. The process of adopting Ava went very easily. It was the first time I had adopted an animal”. Ava now lives with a fourteen-year-old beagle named Mr. Sir and a seven-year-old cat named Binx. Ava loves Mr. Sir, although Mr. Sir is more of a cuddle buddy than a player. “Ava came to me already potty trained, so in that respect I am a bit spoiled”, remarked Nicole. “In the past two months that I have had her, I have trained her to sit, lay down and give paw. She loves to go on walks and car rides. I just can’t believe how much light Ava brings into my life. Her crazy wild side is always entertaining as she is destroying her toys and when she is cuddly, well that’s the best.” Nicole is so happy with Ava and has said she has never growled at her. happytails GivingaSecondChancetoPuppyAva Ava

(5011 Grande Blvd, Medina.) Looking For A Furrever Home Winston I am already gelded. I am a purebred Tennessee Walker and need an experienced horseperson. I am rideable and up to date with shots. Winston’s Story Winston is a handsome,15.3h, sweet gentleman who is also a bit of a comedian. He has very good ground manners and does well with the farrier. His previous owner used to trail ride with him, but he does require an intermediate or higher-level rider. He is also used to be ridden without a bit. Winston came in together with another horse, Talulah and is quite bonded with her, but we would consider separating them for the right home or maybe a pair would be perfect for your farm. Please call 330-723-7722 for more information on this lovely guy or other adoptable horses. Winston MCSPCA DONATE TODAY

A loss of a pet can be heart-breaking.  Many wish they had a way to honor and remember that relationship.  The sixth annual Rainbow Bridge Walk on Sunday, September 17, provides an opportunity for pet owners who have lost a pet to come and walk across the Rainbow Bridge. Mike Kovack, Medina County Auditor, is sponsoring the event at Buckeye Woods Park, 6335 Wedgewood Rd. (State Route 162) in Lafayette Township in Medina, with registration starting at 12:30 pm and the program starting at 1 pm. Admission is free. The walk over the bridge symbolizes the pet’s walk to a wonderful new home after it passes away.  Attendees may bring other pets, but they should be leashed at all times. The event features a short memorial service, a pet blessing, various remembrance activities and a one-mile Tribute Walk.  For more information or to register, log on to Rainbow Bridge Walk Join Pet Lovers at the Sixth Annual Rainbow Bridge Walk
