We held our Volunteer Orientation and Information session on Tuesday, March 15th, 2011. We discussed programs that people might be interested in becoming involved in as well as new programs that will be added this year. It was about an hour long meeting with a few of NAFA's current volunteers and people who are interested in helping the community with animal related help.

Hope to see you at our next session, which has not been scheduled yet, that will hone in on special programs.
Till Next Time,

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011 @ Petco in Jonesboro, AR

NAFA is always looking for dedicated animal lovers and advocates, whether they can give 15 minutes, 2 hour, a day or more. By becoming a NAFA dedicated volunteer, you'll build strong relationships with the community, animals and other like-minded volunteers. With your help we'll build a Model Animal Community-a city where unwanted pets and abused, abandoned or homeless animals can find refuge, rehabilitation and rehoming.

The first step in becoming a NAFA volunteer is to attend a volunteer orientation. During the orientation, you will learn about NAFA and the many areas we have available for volunteers. NAFA has more than a dozen programs to help pets stay in the home they have, to find new homes, to be rescued from abuse/neglect, to be educated about health issues, to receive inexpensive veterinarian services for qualifying individuals and to be rescued during disasters.

There is never a commitment to volunteer a specific number of hours. Some additional training is necessary for some of our programs and activities. Our next volunteer orientation which will last about 60 minutes will be at Petco beginning at 7:30 pm. Althought NAFA encourages individuals to bring their pets to our activities, this orientation is for people only.

Hope to see you there,

According to the Arkansas Department of Health, a skunk taken from high school property in Greenwood tested positive for rabies. While Greenwood is in the western part of Arkansas it is a reminder that residents must be diligent in getting their pets vaccinated. If a human contracts rabies there is no cure. NAFA highly encourage all pet owners to ensure their pet’s vaccinations are up to date, especially rabies. Both dogs and cats should have rabies tags and owners should keep certificates easily accessible.

NAFA is sponsoring Dr. Jack Jones for another low cost vaccination clinic this Saturday, March 12th from 7:30 to 11:30 am at our Animal Services Building – 233 N. Gee (red and white building on the corner of Gee Street and Dan Avenue across from Riceland Foods). For costs, vaccinations available and qualifications individuals can visit NAFA’s website or email

Protect your pets,

If you have recently gotten a guinea pig or are thinking about getting one this handout will help to explain the basic requirements of care.

Guinea Pig Handout

**UPDATE** Martin - Miracle Boxer

"Martin" is improving each day and the vet says that if he continues to improve as much each day as he has done so far he will be out of the woods by next week. Please know that your donations will help greatly with his care. He is a wonderful boy and has a loving heart and a super strong will to survive.

If you would like to help with "Martin's" care please donate through NAFA's Causes page or by stopping in at Petco on Saturday from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. You can also mail a donation to us at:
P.O. Box 10075
Jonesboro, AR 72403

We will continue to keep everyone updated as he progresses.

Thank you for your support,
Tut & Ella
