Make your holiday season even more special for our local dogs and cats.
Join the Friends of Cedaredge Animal Control, the Surface Creek Animal Shelter, and folks at Cedaredge Food Town in supporting the checkout stand donation drive throughout the month of December.
All proceeds go to building a much-needed new facility for animals.
The folks at Cedaredge Food Town are "wonderful" for helping with a great project, noted Friends organizers.
Read about the project in the "Give Them Shelter" brochures at each checkout stand or go online to www.surfacecreekshelter.org.
"Your generous donations will guarantee countless 'woofs' and 'meows' of gratitude during this joyous season," say organizers.
There are other ways to help as well. Visit www.surfacecreekshelter.org for information about becoming a dog walker or cat tamer, how to make a donation, what is needed for the daily operation and about the Shelter Shoppe (located at 290 N. Grand Mesa Drive) which is another source of funding.
And of course, the website has listings for dogs and cats ready for their forever home.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
