“Signs of Hope” has been a Cattle Barons’ tradition for years. It’s an expression of support from local businesses and individuals. This is a special way to honor a loved one by sponsoring a sign that will be uniquely displayed at the entrance of the Texas Rose Horse Park/Brunson Equestrian Center upon entering the 2018 Tyler Cattle Barons’ Gala. Sponsors will have their names or company’s name individually produced on these prominent signs. You can join the mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer by purchasing a “Signs Of Hope 2018” by contacting Charlotte Epperson, Signs of Hope Coordinator, at (903)724-3430, 2charlieepperson@gmail.com.

Cancer does not discriminate. For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society (ACS) has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, the American Cancer Society has helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating research findings into action, ACS has seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990’s.

SAVE TONS on Pet Microchips This April

$5 Pet Microchipping in April

The Tyler Animal Shelter is offering discounted microchipping prices of $5 through the month of April, plus a one-day discounted rabies and microchipping event.

This year, the $5 microchipping is through the month of April at our 4218 Chandler Hwy location, not 3393 W. Grande.

The Rabies Vaccination and Microchipping Clinic will be April 26th at Fun Forest Park, 2000 N Forest, starting at 6pm.

“Filling out the paperwork takes longer than the actual microchipping,” said Shelter Manager Shawn Markmann.

“If your dog gets lost or gets picked up, then you have an identifier to get your pet back to you, and if your animal is stolen it also helps retrieve ownership,” Markmann said, adding that all of the animal control officers have microchip scanners on their trucks to help find the owner before they go into the shelter.

The Tyler Animal Shelter also is accepting donations to help the pets in their care. Dry pet food is accepted as part of its pet food bank program, which has given out 1,500 pounds of food since its inception. The food is given to families who want to give up their pets because they cannot afford to feed them. Other donations needed include white towels of any size, stainless steel food bowls, and hard rubber chew toys, similar to the Kong brand toys.
