Could you HELP out at Tomlinson's? It's inside, once a month, 2 volunteers, so it's not a terribly 'heavy load' in volunteer work. Look at your calendar, think about it and let me know! We can plan far in advance. Manager Jenny Duffie highly recommends a repeatable event: the public gets to know us, our name, by putting a friendly face to our mission. The adopting public grows to expect us being there.
Respond to me, Maggie Jedlicka, here. By responding, it's not a done deal, it just means that you're interested, then we'll work together to figure out the dates that work best for you.
THANK YOU TO OUR ROCKIN' HLSPCA VOLUNTEERS!
At ACE HARDWARE/Horseshoe Bay
every 4th Friday of every month, our dogs with our awesome volunteers are OUT for an adoption event.
Forgot a few items that you can't do without from Ace Hardware? Well, how about an adorable, adoptable companion for life? HLSPCA volunteers from left to right, Carol Walterscheidt, Janette Freeland, Marg Hoff, Kelly Gravley and Vicki Whitehead, with dogs for adoption: Bart (Carol's holding him...), Cleo, Charlotte and Lucas. Way to go team!
With our mainstay Adoption Event at PETSMART/Hill Country Galleria, we're adding on and moving out to TWO more locations every month - spreading out to Horseshoe Bay and into Lakeway.
TOMLINSON'S/Lakeway has opened their hearts, their locations and staff to Highland Lakes SPCA. An Austin original since 1946, Tomlinson's Feed is a prominent local source for natural, healthy pet supplies. And now HLSPCA will be there with them. Peek at our first day at Tomlinson's.
We'll be OUT there the 2nd Saturday of every month!
It would be our first 'rodeo' at Tomlinson's Feed. Two special dogs from HLPSCA: Bart and Jax.
We put our signage out on the storefront. We met a lot of folks, we were more introducing ourselves.
Beautiful Kelly Ghilarducci was the other part of our 'human' duo for our two boys... Here's Kelly with Jax.
Bart and Jax had a great day, attentive and playful, and got lots of special love from Tomlinson's staff!
Bart says to Jax... 'did you see ALL the TOYS and TREATS in here, this is gonna be one GREAT DAY!'
Nobody could believe Jax was 10. He got away a few times on his long lead, only to return with...
...yep, a squeaky PIG toy, his fave!
Melanie, a Tomlinson's staffer, was taken with Bart. They put a little salve in his hair to do-up his mohawk!
Melanie, Linda and Laurie were so generous to us and our HLSPCA dogs. Tomlinson's is just wonderful, really.
Bart would greet and hang out with the customers... "Could you be my forever family?"
Bart ended up on the counter a few times...checking out the goody bowl, but always got so much love.
Tomlinson's manager, Jenny Duffie, also has an older Jack Russell, and took special interest in Jax.
Jenny and Jax.
Jenny and Jax.
Jenny keeps her own rescue, Mac, at the store. Everybody got along just fine. Mac's a cool dude.
Tomlinson's showered us with a shopping cart full of dog food, treats, toys and beds. What a welcome!
It was a fun-filled day, but even Jax who never seemed to slow down takes caresses from Kelly for a break.
Bart shows off all his training by keeping a perfect down. (Of course there was a treat above him...)
Here we are at the end of a wonderful day: Jenny & Mac, Maggie & Jax, Kelly & Bart, Laurie and Melanie.
It makes it all worthwhile when you think about the payoff of finding these two special boys a forever home.
Manager Jenny Duffie with Jax.
