The Clark County Dog Wardens are managing their own shelter due to the closure of Humane Society facility.  They are renting a former veterinary clinic at 3673 Middle Urbana Road. 

As this was an unanticipated event, no budget dollars were allocated for this service.  Therefore, we at Risen Christ Lutheran Church and School have the opportunity to reach out with the love of Christ and care for a part of God’s good creation.You may drop off donations at the church.  Items needed include:  Clean sheets, towels, blankets, stainless steel pet dishes, plastic scoopers, new or gently used collars and leashes, dog and puppy food, laundry detergent, bleach, Pinesol, Lysol laundry sanitizer, baby wipes, and disinfectant wipes. The purchase of Clark County dog licenses will also help this effort!

Jon and Erika Linderman  and Jamie and Amy McGuffey are active leaders of the Marriage Resource Center.  All avid and amateur bicyclists are welcome to join Pastor Rich and Kathy for this fund-raising ride.  Participation costs $25 per adult.  There will be food and fun activities for the whole family along the route!
