Firing up the Grill? Keep these Safety Tips in Mind

Firing up the Grill?  Keep these Safety Tips in Mind

With Memorial Day fast approaching, people will be firing up their grills for the first time this year and the last thing on many minds is probably safety, right? Well, it shouldn’t be according to Fire Chief Richie Bowers. Every year, thousands of homes catch fire because of inproper use of grills and the Fire Chief wants to remind residents that preparation is the key to staying safe when using grills this season.

Before you plan your next outdoor cookout, please review these safety tips:

If you haven’t used your grill in a while, give it a good spring cleaning. Scour the grate with a wire brush. Save future cleaning time by using a nonstick cooking spray to prevent food from sticking to the grill.

Before using your grill for the first time this season, go online to check whether your grill has been recalled due to any dangerous defects.

Montgomery County Humane Society Introduces New Pre-Adoption Spay-Neuter Program

Montgomery County Humane Society Introduces  New Pre-Adoption Spay-Neuter Program

The Montgomery County Humane Society  is introducing a new pre-adoption program to spay or neuter all animals adopted from the Montgomery County Animal Shelter.  Spay-neuter charges will be a flat fee of $70 for a cat or kitten and $120 for a dog or puppy.

Several veterinary clinics are partnering with MCHS to provide this service.  An adopter will complete the paperwork at the shelter, MCHS will arrange for transport and surgery, and the adopter will pick up the animal directly from the veterinary clinic.

Hundreds of homeless animals are brought to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter every month in the warm weather.  This new initiative is an effort to reduce the number of homeless animals that are in need of care and shelter.
