Murphy is a four-year-old male grey/blue shorthair cat with bright green eyes.  He’s a rangy guy with long legs but weighs in at a little over nine pounds. Murphy arrived at the shelter as a surrender and is missing a toe, but he doesn’t let any of that slow him down! He’s an active explorer who doesn’t like to sit still too long at the shelter, especially when there is so much out there to see! But he is fine with getting a bit of attention, very friendly and outgoing.  Murphy’s good with kids and ready to meet his new family. Call HSBC to arrange a meeting with this handsome guy!

The recent weather has got to have gardeners just itching to dig in the dirt.  All you need is plants, right?  Well, we’ve got them!  Swing by the Meow Market annual plant and veggie sale from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, May 19. Among our offerings are annual and perennial flowers, tomatoes, sweet peppers, chilies, and herbs. Our flowers and vegetable plants are all grown locally and are ready for planting—our plant vendors include Squirrel Ridge Farms and Becky Dickinson. Squirrel Ridge Farms is even offering a reserved order service: contact them to reserve your plants and pick them up at the Meow Market.

Got a black thumb? Don’t worry; there’s something for you too.  We’ll also be offering sales on baked goods, and we know some of you have been looking for our bake sale since February!  Steve’s Chuckwagon will be on hand with their delicious smoked meat sandwiches and Chicago style hot dogs to make sure no one goes away hungry.  After all, shopping is demanding work. 

And for you treasure seekers, we will have local artisans and their hand-crafted creations. Since this is one of the first opportunities to purchase local handicrafts, it would be a shame to miss out. These are wonderful places to find those one-of-a-kind gifts.  If you’re a vendor, we’d love to have you! We still have room; contact Peggy at 715-222-9375 to reserve your spot.  

The Meow Market will be held at the Peggy Schilling Animal Adoption & Education Center, located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Highway 35 and County Road D. All proceeds will benefit the shelter. Come by and check out the progress on our new shelter!
