Remembering Sassy

Remembering Sassy

It is with great sadness that we tell you that last night Sassy the horse died of colic. All efforts were taken with Vet care as she became sick. When Sassy came to us she received lots of love, attention, and care from all. She won over may hearts and brought a lot of joy to many who came to visit her and followed her on Face Book. She loved the attention and we are happy that we could give her the love and care she needed. She came along way to being healthy, but lost the fight. Most of all she was happy and loved all the attention from everyone that came to see her and by her caretakers. She will be missed very much. Thank you to all of you who took an interest in Sassy and donated time, supplies, money, and love. She was given the best care we could and the best Vet care. We at Southeast Volusia Humane Society are saddened but she is now free of her illness and walked over the rainbow bridge. She will be missed at Southeast Volusia Humane Society. You will be missed Sassy. Thank you, Sassy, for giving us your spirit, trust, and love.

Three New Blog Posts to Start the Year

Spotlight on Camille Dickinson

LUV alias Camille

This week’s spotlight is on Camille Dickinson. Camille has been involved in SEVHS for about 30 years, spending just about all of those years serving on the Board of Directors. Camille has worn our mascot “LUV” the big black and white dog costume for over 20 years. I don’t think anyone could take that role more seriously than Camille.

Mango’s Resolutions for the New Year!

Mango's Corner

Mango’s Corner

MANGO returns with his suggestions for resolutions for the New Year! First on the list: More Diet and Exercise. I worry about putting on the extra pounds because as a dog gets older, gaining weight becomes a lot easier and harder to lose. Dogs tend to get overfed, especially during the holidays, and people food seems to become acceptable. Make your New Year’s resolution to not give your dog people food. It’s not good for us and it can hinder our overall health. There is a multitude of people food that can be harmful and toxic to pets. If you would like a list of those foods, just leave me a message and I’ll email you what you need to know to avoid the dangers of people food.

Through their “No Pet Store Puppies” campaign, the ASPCA has urged consumers to boycott all products from stores that sell puppies.“The risk is simply too high that you’re supporting a puppy mill,” said Cori Menkin, senior director of the ASPCA campaign.
