New Pet Adoption, Education Program: St. Augustine Humane Society

The St. Augustine Humane Society has launched its newest awareness program to support the non-profit’s mission to prevent pet overpopulation with affordable spay neuter programs and to eliminate the relinquishment of pets to shelters. According to Carolyn Smith, St. Augustine Humane Society’s Operations Director, the organization has launched, “Abandoned to Adored”, an ongoing educational exercise that takes participants on the journey of a shelter dog.

Working with the St. Johns County Animal Control Pet Center, an abandoned pet will be tracked from initial intake to being selected, medically rehabilitated, professionally trained, and groomed and pampered as a finishing touch. Then, the pet is sent on a pet supply shopping spree with volunteers before it is placed in a perfectly matched and loving home.

Individuals and families who wish to participate in this adoption program can learn more online and register at http://www.staugustinehumanesociety.org/adoption/abandonedtoadored.html. By submitting the application, participants agree to be interviewed for selection and to have stories and photos released to the media. For more information, call 904.829.2737 or email info@staughumane.org.

“We are honored to have so many volunteers in the community who work with us to implement programs like ‘Abandoned to Adored’. Our thanks goes to the St. Johns County Animal Control Pet Center where someone will adopt a deserving new pet while participating in a fun community activity,” said Smith.

St. Augustine Humane Society is a non-profit organization which promotes
responsible pet ownership and strengthens the human-animal bond through
education and training. The organization works to reduce the relinquishment
rate of pets to shelters through effective and affordable spay and neuter
efforts and is a resource center for the citizens and animals in St. Johns
County, Florida. Programs are made possible in part by generous funding from
patrons, the Ted Weber Trust, and program activities. The facility is
located at 1665 Moultrie Road in St. Augustine, Fla. Business hours are
Tuesday through Saturday from 9 am until 4 pm, and Sunday from 1 pm until
4 pm. Closed Monday. For more information call 904-829-2737 or visit the

Mythica on a Fracking Tour at Noble energy

Mythica Blog: What the Frack is going on!?!?!

Recently I was invited by a friend of mine who is a photographer for the oil and gas industry to go on a tour of a Colorado local energy company, Noble Energy. I went because I am the idiot who likes to hear both sides of a story. I'd also prefer to know something first hand than hearsay. So I went to learn about Fracking. I went on this tour with the same basic knowledge that most of the people I know have about Fracking. 1. Fracking is … [Read More its Good for You...]
