Dog Obedience Training Classes

in 2 days and 11:13 hours.

Location: Cedar Valley Humane Society, 7411 Mt. Vernon Rd. SE, Cedar Rapids
Starts: April 28 2015 @ 07:00 PM
Ends: June 10 2015 @ 08:00 PM

Bring out the best in your dog! Our Dog Obedience Training Classes begin at the end of April and run for seven weeks. The class will cover focus, sit, down, stay, stand, walking on a loose leash, heel, and recall. Your dog must be at least five months old with a current rabies vaccination. Cost is $90 if you pre-register. If you wait until the first day of class to register, you'll pay $10 more. The class fee includes a Martingale training collar and a graduation certificate. We highly encourage pre-registration because each session is limited to 10 participants. There are two sessions:

Please bring the following items to your first class:
  • A copy of your dog's current shot records (must have an up-to-date rabies vaccination).
  • Treats for your dog.
  • Phone number you can be reached at in the evenings in case we need to cancel class due to bad weather.
Classes will be taught by Gary Harrington, an Animal Behavior College Certified Dog Trainer and AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. Gary also is certified in Pet First Aid through the American Red Cross. This will be his ninth year teaching at the Cedar Valley Humane Society. All proceeds benefit homeless animals at the Cedar Valley Humane Society. For more information, contact Stephanie Schmitz at (319) 362-6288 or step...@cvhumane.org.

Stuff the Stuff Truck

in 6 days and 04:13 hours.

Location: Cedar Valley Humane Society, 7411 Mt Vernon Rd SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Starts: May 02 2015 @ 12:00 PM
Ends: May 02 2015 @ 05:00 PM

Bring us your unwanted, gently used items! Clothing, furniture, household items (and more!) can all be brought to us during our Stuff the Stuff Truck drive. On Saturday, May 2, from noon to 5pm, Stuff Etc.'s box truck will be parked in our lot, and our fantastic, hard-working volunteers will be here to help you unload your vehicle. We are NOT looking for supplies for the animals--we ARE looking for items we can re-sell at Stuff Etc. to raise money for medicines, vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries, and other necessities. Furniture sells REALLY well, so if you have an old-but-still-good chair or an odd end table, now is a great time to lighten your house of stuff and help animals at the same time. So...clean out your closets and cabinets! Shovel off your shelves! Rearrange your rooms! Bring us all the good stuff you don't want, and we will convert it to cash to support our mission.

Get out the Give on #GivingTuesday

in 218 days and 16:14 hours.

Location:
Starts: December 01 2015 @ 12:01 AM
Ends: December 02 2015 @ 12:01 AM

First there was Black Friday... then Cyber Monday... now #GivingTuesday! For the third year, we're an official partner of #GivingTuesday, and we're helping to spread the word to "get out the give."

#GivingTuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations. The idea is to make #GivingTuesday a part of our collective experience, much in the way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday became part of the cultural consciousness.

The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been designated as #GivingTuesday. This year, #GivingTuesday is December 1. We encourage you to make a meaningful contribution in any way you wish.

If you would like to do a donation drive, please check out our wish list! Of course, monetary donations are always welcome.

The success of #GivingTuesday as a national movement depends on all of us! We encourage everyone to be involved with spreading the word and participating. Families and individuals are encouraged to be generous in whatever ways matter to them.
