ABERDEEN, Wash. - PetSense in Aberdeen has some new kittens and cats up for adoption, thanks to a recent adoption of their own, that spawned a new partnership with North Beach PAWS. They supplied the furry orphans for the Petsense National Adoption event earlier this month. Brittanie, the new manager of the local PetSense adopted "Dexter," and that got the ball rolling.
Molly High of North Beach PAWS tells us they are grateful for the opportunity and thanked PetSense for their hospitality. The cats will be rotated every 2-3 days so check back often. For each cat adopted, PetSense gives a cardboard carrier, a blanket, one month of flea treatment, and a goodie bag, as well as 10% off purchases the day of the adoption.
If you are looking for a kitten or a cat, we are now doing adoptions out of PetSense in Aberdeen as well as through the shelter! Please go see our purr-babies if you would like to add to your family. We have cats and kittens of all ages, sizes and color. Those who have not been adopted after a couple of days will return to the shelter for a break and others will take their place, so check back often. Or if you are looking for a particular kitty, let us know! We might have one just waiting at our shelter for the purr-fect fur-ever home with you! Due to the high numbers of kitties needing rehomed at this time, we are offering a special adoption fee of one for $80 or two for $100. When considering adopting, understand that kittens and teenage litter mates often do better in pairs as they will entertain each other and not rely on you (or your house) for their primary means of entertainment. They are less mischievous if they can wear each other out! They all come spayed/neutered and all vaccinations, deworming, and flea control is current. The shelter has invested up to $250 per kitty, so this is much more economical than getting a free kitten you have to pay for the altering, initial vaccinations, veterinary care and wellness check, as this has already been done! Your purr-fect feline companion awaits you!
SEATTLE, Wash. - The largest and most influential independent wine recognition program in the state, the Seattle Wine Awards (SWA), announces the winning wines in 26 categories spanning three retail price ranges and comprised exclusively of Washington state appellation wines.
Seattle Wine Awards Executive Director, Christopher Chan, launched the awards as a wine-recognition program focused on Washington-grown grapes and wine in 2006. The inaugural event garnered only 274 entries. This year, however, the program received nearly one thousand bottles of Washington’s highest quality wines for consideration. A top-tier panel of experienced local and national wine-savvy professionals committed to tasting and evaluating this year’s entries.
Westport Winery’s voluptuous red blend Bella earned a gold medal at this year’s Seattle Wine Awards in April. A portion of the proceeds from Bella, a blend of Tempranillo, Refosco, Barbera, Primitivo, Merlot and Syrah, benefits the Mt. Rainier Chapter of the American Red Cross’s blood bank. This wine’s label is in homage to the region’s fame as home to the Twilight book and movie series.
Westport’s other red blends, Jetty Cat and Boom Runner, each earned bronze medals in this competition. Jetty Cat, a scrappy blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc, benefits the Harbor Association of Volunteers for Animals (HAVA). Boom Runner, a bold blend of Syrah and Merlot aged in French oak, benefit Hoquiam’s Polson Museum. Founded in 2006 by Christopher Chan the Seattle Wine Awards is the largest wine competition in Washington State.
