Delicious dog training treats needed!
Our animal trainer, Kelsi Skee, has been working hard to provide many enrichment and training activities for both dogs and cats. She has recently started obedience classes for HSMSC dogs (handled by HSMSC dogwalkers). To be able to improve quality of life for our animals, she must have a steady, consistent supply of yummy, delicious, stinky treats! We would be so appreciative if you could donate any items from the list below on a weekly, monthly, yearly, or one-time basis!
- Hot dogs
- String cheese
- Goldfish crackers
- Cheerios cereal
- Freeze-dried chicken (or any meat)
- Meat-flavored baby food in a squeeze tube (such as Ella's brand)
- Refillable (empty) squeeze tubes
- Natural Balance brand Dog Food Rolls (available from Hollywood Feed)
- Fish-flavored treats
- Any training treats from Hollywood Feed
Or you can make your own liver brownies for our dogs! The recipe from LiveBarkLove.com follows:
Lip-Smacking Liver Brownies
1.25 pounds of liver
2 large eggs
3/4 cup of all-purpose flourDirections:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Combine ingredients in a food processor; mix until finely chopped. Put all of the ingredients in a blender and mince them until they are at a thick liquid consistency. Pour into bakeware (such as a 9"x13" glass baking pan). Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the middle is firm. Let cool. Cut into small squares. Store in closed container in the refrigerator.
Go green and help animals!
Reduce, reuse, recycle! Those three things are an important part of going green. Did you know that by doing a couple of these things, you can also help the injured and abused animals at the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County?
Another item we can use is old newspapers. We use them to line kennels and cages of some of our animals to keep our facility and our animals' spaces clean. Just drop them off at our facility at 935 Farm Road and we would be very grateful!
Why is a Humane Society pet right for me?
The lure of a pure-bred puppy can be strong, but adopting a mixed-breed rescue can be an even more informed, and fulfilling, decision.
Did you know that a dedicated team of volunteers and staff walks the Humane Society’s canine residents every day? Other helpers socialize and groom the dogs. These volunteers, along with the HS staff, help create biographies of the animals in our care, and readily share this information with potential adopters.
Whenever possible, we attempt to detail the breed background of each dog to provide more guidance about how she will fit into your home and lifestyle, but ultimately, visual identification is only a guess.
And breed is not destiny. Every dog is an individual, so while the pure-bred pointer may turn out to be gun-shy, or the pedigreed Labrador may have a fear of water, a Humane Society dog has had a full health and behavioral evaluation so there are fewer surprises about temperament. Our rescues aren’t required to be perfect, of course, but our adopters are able to make more informed choices with this thorough background knowledge.
Life with any dog is full of surprises, but no one wants to be surprised by incompatibility between an animal and his people. By adopting a dog from the Humane Society, you have a guide to help you make the best match possible.
