Pet of the Week

  • May 2, 2016 at 8:51AM

That's me – Ricky. I'm the handsome tabby fellow shown here with Nanette, one of my many girlfriends at the San Juan Island animal shelter. I suppose I'm what you might call a "chick magnet." I don't know how to explain it – they just can't get enough of me. I guess it might be because of my gentle, suave demeanor. Or maybe it's my soulful eyes and rugged good looks. Here at the animal shelter they call me "The Ambassador" because the other cats like me so much. Truth is, I like them too. The problem is, I've been here for a couple of years now … way too long. I was hoping someone like you might be interested in giving me a real forever home. I'm pretty sure you'll like me. Everyone else seems to!

Thanks from the Habitat truck | Letter

  • Apr 26, 2016 at 1:30AM

Thanks go out to all Orcas Islanders who donated to the Skagit Habitat for Humanity's Store truck. During the three hours the truck was parked at Island Market on the 4th of April, donors came by to provide items that can be reused. The truck left filled. This visit was, once again, coordinated with Pete Moe, executive director of Orcas Recycling Services and The Exchange, and was a continuing and growing relationship between SHFH and ORS. If fact, Pete helped with the process at the truck, and got to meet donors and talk to them about the coming reopening of The Exchange. Donor comments dramatically emphasized how much islanders are eager for The Exchange to be back in business.
