This week, the NCSPCA would like to announce Birds of Prey, a presentation by Mark Manske of Adirondack Raptors, and Wendy Hall, of the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge & Rehabilitation Center. The presentation will take place at the Whallonsburg Grange on Friday, April 15th at 7:00 p.m. Suggested minimum donations are $5.00 per adult; children under the age of 12 are free. All proceeds will benefit the NCSPCA. Visitors will have a unique opportunity to meet some of these extraordinary creatures and learn up close about the lives and behaviors of birds of prey. Mark has been banding raptors for the past 25 years; he is also a public school educator, a falconer, a New York State licensed nuisance wildlife control officer, an adjunct college professor at Paul Smiths College, and a retired wildlife rehabilitator.
Our featured pet this week is Sasha, a beautiful calico cat with stunning markings. Upon arrival to the NCSPCA, she quickly became the resident "office cat" and you will often find her greeting visitors as they pass through our doors. Sasha is declawed and, as a result, should reside in a home where she is not permitted to go outdoors, as she will not be able to defend herself. This pretty lady seems to get along well with everybody, but she is more of an inquisitive observer than the center of the action. You can be sure if there is any news of note, she will have the scoop! If you are looking for an intelligent, indoor-only feline with a great personality, Sasha may be the cat your are looking for! Why not stop by today to introduce yourself? You'll be glad you did.
