We are very excited and pleased to know that our September donation of a pet oxygen mask kit to the Lima Fire Department, in cooperation with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association program, has resulted in a pet's life being saved. On January 3rd, "Cola", a Lab, was rescued from a house fire in Lima, but was unresponsive. After several minutes of oxygen therapy administered by the firefighters, Cola was revived. Thank you to ALL firefighters whose skills, bravery, and personal motivation have saved so many lives, both human and animal! We are thrilled to be a part of this important program, and will be donating two more kits to the Lima Fire Department this month. Thanks to Craig Orosz for this photo.

Our 25th Anniversary Celebration and Adoptathon was a wonderful day for pets and people alike! The unofficial adoption count from the event is nine pets, with one more being fostered with the potential for adoption! We would like to thank all those who donated items for the pet food drive as well: Bob and Barb Bockey, the Fuge family, Cindy and Frank Becker, Angela and Jim Osmon, Michelle and Mitch Monfort, and everyone else who donated. The raffle was a success as well, and the proceeds were divided among the nonprofit organizations in attendance. Thank you to everyone for the anniversary wishes, and for helping us make a difference in our community!
