Did you know some pet supplies are tax-free? The 2022 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday begins on Saturday, May 28, 2022, and ends on Friday, June 10, 2022. During the sales tax holiday period, tax is not due on the retail sale of eligible items related to disaster preparedness.
All month long in April 2022, the Winn-Dixie at 3116 West Commercial Boulevard in Tamarac, FL will donate $1 from the purchase of every $2.99 reusable Community Bag sold from their location. Reusable bags help us all reduce litter on land and in the ocean. Beyond Nine Cat Rescue gives cats the opportunity to live safe, healthy and happy lives. You might say it’s a Winn-Winn! Stop by and get one (or more)!
Come celebrate the PetSmart National Adoption Week from February 28th to March 6th, 2022 with Beyond Nine Cat Rescue!

Animal shelters across the country are once again teaming up with NBC and Telemundo stations to find loving homes for pets in need with the Clear The Shelters pet adoption and donation campaign.
The stations’ month-long “Adopt & Donate” effort will feature virtual pet adoptions and make it easy for people to donate online to participating shelters and rescues. The campaign runs from Aug. 23 through Sept.19, 2021.
Clear The Shelters is an annual, nationwide pet adoption campaign that is spearheaded by NBCUniversal Local, a division of NBCUniversal. Every year, NBCUniversal Local’s NBC and Telemundo owned stations, plus affiliated stations, partner with animal shelters and rescues in their communities to host Clear The Shelters events.
In June of 2021, we posted about Hercules on our Facebook page:
This sweet kitty was in pain and needed entropion eye surgery on both his eyes. We added a fundraiser campaign to the post to help cover the expense of his surgery.
Entropion is a genetic condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward against the eyeball. This results in irritation and scratches to the cornea — the front surface of the eye — leading to corneal ulceration, or corneal perforation. It can also leave dark-colored scar tissue to build up over the wound (pigmentary keratitis). These factors may cause a loss or decrease in vision.
We couldn’t wait, so Hercules got his surgery and by July, he had recovered well enough to finally announce to the world he was ready for his forever home!
Sweet Hercules had a rough start to his life. Found trying to survive on the streets with a painful eye condition, his eyes are now surgically repaired & require no follow-up or medications. He’s such a sweet boy! He’s around 2 yrs old, vetted and ready for a home. He loves attention & would love a home of his own.
Then in August, something magical happened! Hercules got adopted!
Now his name is Yams because he is such a sweet potato. Congratulations Yams, we wish you and your new family happiness and joy!
