Shelter full of animals needing homes

The Nevada County Animal Shelter is bursting at the seams with dogs and cats who need to find new homes fast.

The number of cats and dogs euthanized in Western Nevada County animal shelters is down this year because more people are adopting pets, said shelter volunteer Cheryl Wicks.

The Nevada County Animal Shelter, 14647 McCourtney Road, is open Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to noon.

Kilroy’s Towing is throwing free party

Kilroy’s Towing Service is throwing a free party Sunday to protest the proposed increase in vehicle license fees, reportedly designed to bring California’s reeling budget back into line. Kent Kilroy said he’ll provide free food, drinks and a band for those who wish to come, beginning at 3:30 p.m Sunday.

Kilroy will have a car to bash for $1 a whack at the party, with proceeds going to local rest homes.

Kilroy’s is at 12077 Highway 49 at the south end of Grass Valley.

Program fights

fraud against seniors

Seniors Against Investment Fraud, a program offered by the California State Department of Corporations, is now available in Nevada County.

The SAIF program provides information and techniques to combat investment fraud and other scams involving contractors, lotteries, contests, telemarketers and written solicitations.

This program is offered locally by the American Association of University Women, Nevada County Branch. AAUW members are available to make presentations to local organizations and other interested groups of residents.

Nevada County is a prime area for con artists due to the large number of seniors, who are often targeted for various types of fraud.

For information on scheduling a program or volunteering for SAIF, contact Cheryl Morris at 273-1990.
