The Boston Marathon Comes to Ocean Shores!!

Local homeowner Mike DeYoung has qualified to run in the 2020 Boston Marathon which is being run virtually due to COVID-19. Mike has selected Ocean Shores for his run!  He will start the race at 8:30 AM on Labor Day, September7, at the Ocean Pours Taproom, 759 Ocean Shores BLVD NW, and run his 26.2 mile course, ending at Ocean Pours.  Mike proposed a marathon fundraiser for North Beach PAWS by having Individuals mail in the form below with their estimated predictions for when he crosses the finish line.  The cost is $5 per prediction and you can make as many predictions as you wish.  We will create a spread sheet with all the predictions listed.  The race finish time will be according to the time on Mike’s watch. The person that comes closest to predicting the time that Mike crosses the finish line will split the raised pot with North Beach PAWS!  If there is more than one person guessing the same time, the half pot will be split accordingly.  We are very thankful to Mike for deciding to raise funds for PAWS in this unique way!  Entries must be postmarked by September 1.  Come, cheer Mike on as he runs the course and crosses the finish line!  Click HERE to download the prediction form to get registered!

Meet Indy, Special Needs Cat

Indy was was found near the gas pumps at a service station, in the middle of Independence Day traffic, apparently having some difficulty finding his way around.   One good look at his eyes showed why.  He has a painful condition called ‘entropion’, where his eyelashes are rolled inward, causing them to continuously rub on his eyes.  If this condition continued, he would develop ulcers on the eye, causing infection, ulcers and permanent blindness. 

Indy is a social cat who likes attention, but because of abandonment and ongoing pain had lost a lot of weight.  He was badly flea infested, but with that under control, he is getting back his luxurious coat.  He will be a good candidate for adoption once he has had eye surgery, which is scheduled.  He may not have perfect vision, but will at least be able to see and won’t be in unrelenting pain.  We will post an ‘after’ photo once he has recovered from surgery.

With the care needed for Indy and other special needs animals, our special medical fund will be close to being depleted.  We are respectfully calling on the generosity of the public to help us replenish this fund for cats or dogs that we will most certainly be helping in the future, who will need extra veterinary care. Thank You Very Much!
