Another Chance Animal Welfare League needs your help. They have a need for a temporary foster, a few weeks was the term used when they received this request.
There are two dogs, one is a very well behaved Cocker Spaniel and the second one is well behaved and sweet small 6 pound white dog (mixed breed). They were adopted originally from ACAWL. Owner loves them dearly but she is in the hospital and is awaiting her granddaughters arrival here in a few weeks. Granddaughter is retired from the military and is in the midst of moving.
Let’s show appreciation to a fellow dog lover who chose rescue over breeders and help out where we can. It would be nice if the pups could be in one place together, but under the circumstances separation or foster share wouldn’t be out of the question…..anyone raising their hand yet? Please respond to this email or call Miriam at the sanctuary (530) 229-7833. Both are healthy and house broke as well.
Hope to hear from you…………..
Looking to protect your garden from pesky, hungry deer and rabbits? Plant Pro‐Tec’s Deer and Rabbit Repellent offers an award winning natural solution to the problem. In 2010 Plant Pro-tec was awarded a pair of home‐and‐garden industry accolades, the Hardware Retailing Retailers’ Choice Award as one of the most innovative items displayed at the 2010 National Hardware Show, and earned a 94‐percent approval rating after being tested by members of the National Home Gardening Club of America. The 100‐percent organic Plant Pro‐Tec Deer & Rabbit Repellent formula uses highly concentrated garlic oil to keep four‐legged pests from damaging gardens, and a patented, long‐lasting and easy‐to use delivery system that sets it apart from less effective spray‐on repellents. Other repellents begin to break down when they come in contact with the air, and they require reapplication every two or three weeks or more often if it rains. Unlike less effective options, Plant Pro‐Tec’s unique biodegradable, patented delivery system releases the active ingredients slowly over time, keeping the odor strong and effective for between six to eight months, even if it rains. Visit the Plant Pro-tec website for more information.
The active ingredient is contained in a biodegradable plastic container that lets the repelling vapors out, and also keeps air from getting in, which prevents oxidation. Once Plant Pro‐Tec is activated, the clips last for months without any further attention. You simply break the seal to activate the unit, then clip the container directly to the plant, attach it to a nearby fence, or lay it on the ground. Plant Pro‐Tec is available at home and garden retailers, or at www.plantprotec.com
Each year, the Hardware Retailing Retailers’ Choice panel of home improvement retailers selects 30 to 40 products out of the thousands on display at the National Hardware Show to receive the Retailer’s Choice award. The panelists select recipients based on criteria including uniqueness of product, designs, packaging and merchandising, as well as strong sales potential. The National Home Gardening Club Seal is awarded to products tested and recommended by the members of the National Home Gardening Club. Plant Pro‐Tec Deer & Rabbit Repellent received a 94‐percent approval rating, and an overall member rating of 8.4, with 10 being the highest rating possible. “Since using the repellent clips, I haven’t seen deer or rabbits in the
garden or seen any footprints around the garden,” wrote one National Home Gardening Club of America tester, Helen Turner, of Jonesboro, Ark. “I’ll be ordering more for next season.”
Plant Pro‐Tec also offers a Dog & Cat Repellent, which utilizes the same concentrated garlic oil as the Deer & Rabbit Repellent, but adds ingredients including citronella, lemon grass and cinnamon, all of which are especially irritating to pets’ sensitive noses. The Plant Pro‐Tec Gopher & Mole Repellent utilizes the same slow‐release system as the other repellents, but is inserted directly into the rodents’ tunnel, which makes it unusable for a full year.
