Buy a hat; help an animal

The Plumas Animal Welfare Society and Animals In Need are holding a “Save A Life Hats” campaign to raise funds for the two organizations.

The perfect headwear for the coming chill of winter, “Every stitch is made with LOVE,” in hopes of saving an innocent shelter animal looking for a warm and loving home, said Animals in Need volunteer Barbara Montandon.

The hats can be bought inside Chester Plumas Bank during normal business hours. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the knitted beanies, scarves and ‘messy bun’ hats go directly to PAWS in Quincy and local Animals In Need. Buy two or more hats and take $5 off your purchase.

This is the third year of the program, said Montandon. Sacramento resident Dorthy Eakle makes and donates all the hats in support of the program. Hats make a great Christmas or birthday gift Montandon added.

Adoption options

Cats are available at the PAWS cathouse in Quincy, 2453 E. Main St., open Wednesday through Friday, from noon to 3 p.m., and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or by appointment. The organization’s phone number is: 283-5433. The PAWS email is: [email protected].

Adoption fees are $25 for a spayed or neutered cat. If the cat or kitten has not been spayed or neutered, the fee is $60 with $50 refunded when the organization receives proof that the animal has been altered.

Dogs and cats are available at the Plumas County Animal Shelter, 201 N. Mill Creek Road. Regular business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday viewing by appointment only. Office hours are subject to change due to staffing; calling prior to visiting the shelter is recommended. The shelter phone number is 283-3673.

Open house

PAWS cathouse in Quincy is having a Christmas open house with refreshments Saturday, Dec. 14, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Attendees have the option to adopt a cat if they wish.

Anyone interested in pet adoption (cats or dogs) can also contact Barbara Montandon at 258-1536 or email her at [email protected].
