If you listen to the Big Butt Morning Show you know that I am a huge advocate for adopting animals from local rescues. One local rescue that I mention each week on Whisker Wednesday is MonDak Animal Rescue of Williston. They are dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals and to the promotion of their adoption program.

I'd like to tell you about their Pet of The Week - James Bond. He would make the best family dog as he will love everyone in your family. He's a 2 year old German Shepherd-Mix. James is a work in progress with leash training-but he's getting better every day. There is ALWAYS a toy involved with James! If you visit the shelter you know this dude always has a toy in his mouth. Kids? Loves them...he wants them to play! If your other dog is nice to James, he will be nice and play for days. No other dogs? Great....James will play with you!

James is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and this weather has nothing on James....he still wants to play ball....or Frisbee whatever you want. If you are interested in adopting please fill out an application and stop by the shelter for a visit.
Help us find James Bond's people!

The best part is when you adopt one animal, you are actually saving two because MDAR is able to take another dog or cat into their care the next day. There is always something happening and they rely on community support. They are so appreciative of donations.

MonDak Animal Rescue has a few fundraisers coming up. The Second Annual Lucky Paws raffle is this month (March). $25.00 per ticket. Limited to 250 tickets. The Hippity Paw-Pity event is April 1st and will feature a $5 plated lunch from Three Amigos, If the weather cooperates, they will bring in a few petting zoo animals, along with train rides. There may even be an Easter Bunny Hopping around so you can have the opportunity to capture a picture. May 6th is the Spay-ghetti & No Balls Dinner and Silent Auction.

Stop out to the Buck Sheele Family Animal Center to enter the raffle, drop off donations or to adopt. Mondak Animal Rescue is located at 6207 1st Avenue West in Williston and their number is 701-577-7387 (PETS).
