Great to be grateful

It is with sincere gratitude that CAPS thanks each and every one of the individuals and businesses who contributed to make Bark in the Park happen.

Our community is Who’s Who this week. Please take time to read the lists of businesses and individuals who support, donate and volunteer to make Bark in the Park an awesome event.


This week’s pet personality is a sweet boy, Dozer, is a black pit bull with a heart of gold. This guy is a real gentleman and knows not to jump on anyone. He is like a big marshmallow sweetie. Dozer is a favorite at doggie day care. He craves a few kind words and is looking for a buddy he can count on. Dozer was left at CAPS after his owner was transferred to another area. Come out and take Dozer for a walk, and he will stroll his way into your heart. We also have 12 frisky kitties and three female puppies. They are too cute for words!

CAPS’ policy, however, prohibits adopting out puppies or kittens under the age of six months to a home with children under five years of age. This is to protect both the children and the animal.


CAPS will be at Walmart tomorrow with Ki and our Kissin’ Booth. Ki has a regular fan club, and he loves his fans. Don’t disappoint Ki, so come on by and join Ki’s fan club. We have new designs for our shirts, and caps, so please stop by and check them out before or after greeting Ki.

Flower Tree Nursery is raffling a 15-gallon tree of your choice. The raffle tickets are available at Flower Tree, and they are $1 for one ticket and $5 for six tickets. Be sure to get your tickets soon. The drawing date is June 30, and the winner doesn’t have to be present to win.

APS garage sale is coming soon. Are you cleaning your garage and want to get rid of stuff that is just taking up room? CAPS would love your gently used items for our annual garage sale. We don’t need clothing, but any appliances, furniture, dishware, skis or other white elephants are welcome. If you have items to donate contact CAPS at 775-423-7500

CAPS always needs pet food. We would love your donation of cat or dog food. Please feel free to bring the food to CAPS or send an email, and I will pick it up.

CAPS’ mailing address is P.O. Box 5128, Fallon, NV 89406. CAPS’ phone number is 775-423-7500. Please visit the CAPS website ( and Facebook page (Churchill Animal Protection Society). Be sure to “Like” CAPS on Facebook because we are really likable.
