Pumpkins for Pooches
Placeholder Image

"Pumpkins for Pooches" is coming again to our community for a fourth straight year. The Pawnee County Humane Society, Inc., will have a fundraiser at the Sandstone Pumpkin Patch for two days this year. The pumpkins raised by Jerry and Margaret Larson at 914 West Second, Larned, will be ready for picking and the pumpkin patch will be open on Saturday, Oct. 2, from 1 to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 3, from 2 to 5 p.m. There is no admission fee; however, donations are always welcome. Just come and enjoy and purchase a pumpkin.

There will be an open fire pit and Sā€™mores for 50 cents. We will have a photo opportunity for your family in the pumpkin patch. Animals up for adoption will be on display and the trained animals from Larned Correctional Mental Health Facility will also be on display. New this year will be a Micro-chip Clinic and information on rabies vaccinations. You can bring your pets and have them micro-chipped for $10. A micro-chip is a permanent identification placed under the skin, should your animal ever become lost. The micro-chip is inserted with a needle. PCHS has received a grant for rabies vaccinations and will provide information ā€” we will not be vaccinating those days, just giving information.

PCHS currently has applications available for rabies vaccinations, and applications for spay and neuter coupons. For more information about these programs, please call 620-282-2554 or 620-285-2992.

"The PCHS and the City of Larned are just about ready to begin construction of an animal shelter. This will only become a reality if the community is willing to contribute and support our efforts for this much-needed service right here in Larned," said PCHS President Lois Eye.

All proceeds from "Pumpkins for Pooches" will benefit the homeless pets in our community.
