Nov. 2, 2013: Cheers & Jeers


“Additionally, we were so pleased to meet many of you at the Old Navy Kids Safety Event and the Kokomo Schools Middle Years Programmed Community Service Night last month. It was a pleasure to be able to teach some of your children how to properly approach a dog, the benefits of spaying and neutering, present volunteering opportunities to the area’s youth, and distribute many coupons for $10 spaying or neutering.

“We are truly blessed that our 100 percent not-for-profit, volunteer-run 501(c)3 organization is able to provide services to such a wonderful community. Thank you, and we look forward to your continued support in saving the lives of the area’s homeless animals! To rescue your next best friend or donate to help Pals for Paws help the homeless, visit our website at palsforpawsinc.com.”

‘The place to go’ with dogs

Monte and Susan Zinkan of Kokomo send this Cheer to an area business:

“This is a huge Cheer for Secure K9. We cannot say enough good things for this business.

“They groom, board and train dogs. They are so caring. With our situation, they bent over backwards to help us with our dog, Rochester. The business is very clean, and we never saw or heard a cross word.

“This is a new business and is not in the phone book. The business is located at 1105 Touby Pike. The phone number is 765-356-0502. This is the place to go if you need these services.

“Thank you so much, Chris and Bre.”

A time for counting our blessings

Jennifer Vary, director of Howard Haven Residential Center, sends this Cheer:

“Fall has arrived and the leaves are changing to beautiful colors. Autumn is a time for harvesting, gathering and being thankful. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for the many blessings it has bestowed upon Howard Haven Residential Center throughout the year.
