The City of Lansing’s Fourth of July Parade will be held on July 4th at 11 a.m. AnnaBelle’s Pet Station will be walking their dogs…along with rescue dogs available for adoption. H.E.A.R.T. (Helping Eaton Animals Resource Team) and F.M.D.P. (Friends of the Meridian Dog Park) will be walking with AnnaBelle’s. Interested in attending the parade? Check out the route!
H.E.A.R.T. is a newly formed non-profit animal welfare organization, in the process of applying to the IRS to be a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charity. H.E.A.R.T. has accomplished some of its short term goals of purchasing items on the wish list of the county animal control facility, including oscillating fans for the kennel area and Kuranda dog beds. H.E.A.R.T. also has long term goals of providing a stackable washer and dryer and a fenced exercise area on the premises, along with establishing a medical fund and spay/neuter initiatives. Volunteers are needed to work at summer garage sales and other events. For further information call Helen at (517) 543-0288 or e-mail her at HelpingEatonAnimalsRT@gmail.com.
