Once again, the Village Square Booksellers located On the Square is hosting us for this event. Our booth will include a ring toss game and kitty whisker face painting for the kids, TARPS merchandise for sale, free 2014 calendars, information about our shelter, sponsors, and available animals, AND we will have cats and kittens on site! We heard that Raena the Rescue Ferret might stop by to visit and we hope to see you there, too.

Shelter needs this week: Wet cat and Kitten food, Tractor Supply Co. gift cards, and monetary donations toward our vet bills at Springfield Animal Hospital.

TARPS Kittens go to the Library

17 Jul

Today (Thursday July 17) our volunteers (Mary, Grace, Eva, Malia and Ilana) visited with the group at the Summer Lunch at the Library program at Rockingham Free Public Library on 65 Westminster St., Bellows Falls.

Sam Maskell, RFPL’s youth librarian, said everyone enjoyed TARPS visit and learned a great deal about the care and handling of young animals. Children aged from 6 to 10 were able to take away some important information and play with some lively kittens.

Here are some photos taken at the event.
