Sneak Peak of Adorable Puppies
Here is a sneak peak of 19 puppies that will be ready to have holds on them in two to three weeks. Since it’s impossible to tell them apart, we are just showing you some of the ones that are most different. Get ready to Oooh and Awww because here are some cute little faces that will melt your heart. These were just taken on Saturday, June 27th, so they are the most recent so far!
You can see all 19 puppies by visiting the shelter during business hours!
Senior Pets: 12 Steps to Healthy Aging
I love looking at photos of little kids with a new dog or cat and then seeing a photo of the same pair perhaps 10 or more years later. By then, the child has become a young adult, of course; the pet, on the other hand, has moved into the category of the elderly, as pets go.
Our pets are clearly living longer – e.g., since 1930, the average life expectancy of cats has nearly doubled — but they fall into the “geriatric” category all too quickly. Cats and small dogs are generally considered old by the age of 7, larger dogs by the age of 6. From then on, they face the possibility of a number of debilitating and even potentially fatal diseases.
None of us like to think of our pets as “old,” but it behooves us to be aware of changes in behavior or appearance that can signal trouble. Caught early on, many things are very treatable. Being alert and proactive can mean the difference between healthy aging and debilitating conditions.
Mayor Hathaway Meets Little Hathaway
Hey everyone, our Little Hathaway went on an adventure today. He met Mayor Hathaway (his namesake) on our outing. We also were thrilled to see Liz Yancey, from Parks and Rec. Little Hathaway is already adopted and Big Hathaway has already been spoken for too , but the Mayor would like to invite everyone to come out to SEVHS and take a look at the wonderful dogs and cats we have for adoption.
The mayor is such a great supporter of the shelter, and we are thankful for his generous spirit and commitment to our humane society.
So, jump on board with Mayor Hathaway, and come out and see what’s in store for you. I’ll let you in on a little secret; we have more puppies coming that will be available in just a couple of months. You won’t want to miss seeing them. Hathaway and his siblings have holds on them, but they officially go up for adoption on May 14th. Thank you Southeast Volusia for making us such a great home to all the unwanted animals, and thank you for your commitment and support in helping us find them all homes.
Adopt-a-thon at Critters Corner!
SEVHS was at Critters Corner, in NSB on Saturday, April 18th for an adopt-a-thon.

Special thanks to board members Janet, Doreen, and Melissa and our hard and loyal volunteers, Lori, Denise, Marlene, Misty, Carmel, and Lynn for being there for our animals.
Critters Corner is a wonderful business that has been responsible for adopting out more cats and kittens than we can count, for SEVHS. Thank you, Critters Corner, for being such a great advocate for SEVHS. We love you! Be sure and stop by Critters Corner, on 44 behind 7-11 and thank them for the wonderful community service they do for our animals. It was a great day!

Three New Blog Posts to Start the Year
Spotlight on Camille Dickinson
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.
