BARC has just purchased a net gun.
This story goes back to February of this year when 2 stray dogs showed up at the Valley of the Gods B and B and refused to leave. They were trained to sleep in open dog carrier crates, allowing them to be caught ONCE, to allow them to be taken to Dusty Paws for neutering and rabies vaccines. Upon returning to the Valley of the Gods, they have become wary of all human contact. When a client finally agreed to adopt both of them, efforts began to capture them again. After several unsuccessful efforts, we were finally able to live trap one of them and transport it to his new home.
Five attempts with the live trap over the course of this past month have been totally unsuccessful in catching the second dog. He won’t go near the trap no matter what gourmet foods are offered.
The WEB has a listing for a net gun, used by animal control people to capture wary or aggressive strays. Tune in next month for the story of the net gun capture.
There has been one stray wandering around Bluff for the past 6 weeks. It finally moved in with Al Gerecke’s other 4 strays. Jackie Warrens sister has agreed to adopt it, since recently losing her Long time companion.
There are still no foster locations available in Bluff. All calls are being referred to Underdog’s long waiting list. The Bluff Town Council has yet to even discuss options for the next stray to be dropped off in Bluff.
Over this past month BARC has vaccinated 3 dogs, driven 515 miles to deliver 472 pounds of dog food, fielded numerous calls about strays “showing up” and neutered 1 cat which has since been adopted.
Marx Powell continues his efforts to capture cats to get spayed or neutered at Dusty Paws.
As always BARC is in need of foster locations and donations to buy more dog food.
Thank you all for your continued support,
