MEET OUR PETS OF THE WEEK

Wow was I lucky. I did not have a home and was wandering about when a good fellow decided to take a chance and befriend me. He explained he could not keep me but he did get me safely to the shelter. I now have a nice bed, I now have toys, I now have a blanket but I still don’t have a family. I am around a year old and I am a mixed breed. Perhaps a Rottweiler Lab mix: it really doesn’t matter because the important thing for you to know is I am a good boy. I love to be with people and want some of my very own. If you would like to have a happy go lucky friend then I could be the dog for you. So far my life has been an adventure and I can’t wait to see what will happen next. I hope the next thing is being chosen to be part of a family; wouldn’t that be just the greatest thing? I feel sure it is going to happen for me this week.
Well it is the same story you have heard too many times before. I had a family, they moved, I ended up at the shelter. I am not happy about that but still have hope that I will find someone that will keep me as part of their family forever. I am five years old and spayed. I would like to live with a woman; I am a bit afraid of men. If I may add, I would like to find a person that will brush me and catnip toys would be great too. I don’t even mind if you have a dog, as long as it is nice to cats. I am making do here at the shelter but really would like to have a home. I want to be home for the holidays, can you help me?

HSSC DONATED OXYGEN MASKS USED TO SAVE A LIFE!!
On October 2nd at 3:33pm, the Stoystown VFC was called to assist the Boswell Fire Department with a house fire at 619 Center Street in Boswell Borough.
The firemen from Boswell entered the building to find several rooms on fire with the fire moving towards a back bedroom. As firemen were battling the blaze, other firemen were searching the building for trapped victims. A dog was located in the back bedroom and taken outside.
The Pet Rescue Mask from Stoystown VFC was available and requested to the front yard where the dog was being treated. The small dog was not burned, but was having difficulty breathing due to heavy smoke inhalation. Oxygen was provided via the Pet Rescue Mask and after two portable oxygen cylinders were emptied through the mask, the dog became more responsive. The dog was then cooled with water and was finally able to stand up and breathe easier. The resuscitation efforts took about 20 minutes.
The dog was then transported by Boswell Ambulance to Laurel Highland Animal Health and evaluated by veterinarians and later returned to family.
Thank you to our brave Firemen for helping this dog!
