Pet Rescue North is constantly in desperate need of volunteers for a variety of tasks. However, we are currently
in need of volunteers for cleaning (yard and kennels)and feeding animals at the shelter. Recently, a few of our
workers graduated, retired (from PRN) or moved out of the area. If you are interested please contact Peggy at 477-1000.

A HARD DAY'S NIGHT - 50 YEARS OF MAGIC
IT WAS A VERY MAGICAL NIGHT for PET RESCUE NORTH (PRN) at Mudville Music Room
(Mudville Grille Complex - 3105 Beach Blvd. - in
Ray Lewis and
Ernie Evans (http://www.themudvillegrill.com) put on a wonderful evening which included some top notch musical entertainment along with fundraising activities for
PRN. Ron Johnson and Rick Arcusa produced the show which was fantastic and brought us back to that magical time (by
us I mean old timers:o). A lot of clapping, singing and dancing in the aisles.
Many, many people and businesses provided items to be raffled and auctioned during
the course of the event which went from 7:00 to 11:15. Hopefully, I get them all, so here goes: Jan Walker
(quilt), Culhane's, Campache Bay, Barnett Jewelers, Loop Gille, Mudville Grille, Brucci's Pizza, Sole' Spa, EU Jacksonville,
Tim Ballard (pottery), Chip's Music, House of Stereo, Connection Festival, Ladies with Lyrics, Canine Point of View, Ale Pie
House, Bark on Park, Biscottis, Charm Boutique, Sun-Ray Cinema, Grassroots Natural Market, Petco, and Roberts Pharmacy.
A big thank you to all those that participated in setting
up and working at the event. Also, thanks for all those that donated to the cause of PRN and keeping our animals
safe, healthy and well feed so they can find a forever home.
For those dog lovers that LOOOOOVE those little critters, check out our Lap Fur-ball Showcase.
Last year during the holidays, CarbuX Car Wash
asked their customers for donations for Pet Rescue North (PRN). They are doing
the same this year. As with last year, their 3 carwash locations will be drop off points for PRN donations. Donations can
be for both cats and dogs. Food is always needed, but other items are in need as well. The PRN Wish List is located on our
CarbuX Car Wash locations
can be found on their website www.carbuxcarwash.com.
They are starting with the collections of donations on Black Friday
(November 29th) and it will go through Christmas.
Thank you any help
you can provide.

A DOG'S BAGGAGE
Now that I'm home, bathed settled & fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed,
like to open my baggage lest I forget
There is so much to carry - so much regret.
there it is, right on the top.
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss;
And there by my leash hides
Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave;
I still have to unpack my baggage
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough -
for they didn't want me.
Will you add to my baggage?
Will you help me unpack?
will you just look at my things
And take me right back?
Do you have the time to help me
To put away my baggage, to never repack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
But I do come with baggage
Will you still want me?

Welcome to Pet Rescue North,
Duncan's Web Site!
are committed to giving dogs and cats the health and well being they deserve. Join us in making Jacksonville a real
pet haven. Save a life - spay, neuter, adopt.
NOTE TO ADOPTERS
"Lassie, Cleo, Rin Tin Tin and
Toto don't show up in a Rescue shelter. We don't get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful,
completely trained, or perfectly behaved dog or cat. We get the leftovers. Animals that
other people have incompetently bred, inadequately socialized, ineffectively "trained," and badly treated. Most
Rescue dogs and cats have had it. They've been pushed from one lousy situation to another. They've
never had proper veterinary care, kind and consistent training, or sufficient company. They've lived
outside, in a crate, or in the basement. They're scared, depressed and anxious. Some
are angry. Some are sick. Some have given up.
we are an Animal Rescue and we don't give up. We never give up on animal. We know
that they are living beings, with a spirit, a heart and feelings. Our animals are not commodities, things,
or garbage. They are part of sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as the
next Westminster champion. So please, please don't come to rescue a dog or cat in the hopes of getting
a "bargain," or indeed of "getting" anything. Come to the shelter to give, to love,
to save a life and to mend your own spirit. For Rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible.
We can promise you this -- a rescue dog or cat will make you a better person." Unknown

POOCH OF THE MONTH: BENTLEY
BENTLEY Chihuahua • Young • Male • Small
Bentley is such a sweet little boy.
He apparently did not get a lot of food from his previous home as he eats as if he will never eat again.
The tech at the vet said she suspects the previous owner used food as a behavior tool. He has turned
into a loving cuddly little man since he has been shown attention. He will do best in a home with an older
person and perhaps another little dog. If interested we would want you to talk to his foster and feel free
to ask any questions you may have.
No small children • House Trained • Spayed/Neutered • Shots Current.
You don't need to adopt to save a life! Duncan says DONATE!
