That means your local shelter has tons of cute, cuddly newborns, in addition to all the mellow, older cats and everything in between. And the shelter staff are ready to help you adopt your very first cat — or to bring home a friend for another beloved cat!</span></p> Wed, 18 Jun 2014 15:52:20 +0000 Terri Wright 37353 at http://wfit.org Need a Forever Companion?

Zero circled below the desk with the occasional huff or sigh to request a scratch behind the ears.</p><p> Wed, 30 Oct 2013 17:55:58 +0000 Drew Lacy 28248 at http://wfit.org Hosting The Hosts: Fred Migliore The Making Of WFIT's Special "Oktoberfund" Home Brew! http://wfit.org/post/making-wfits-special-oktoberfund-home-brew <p>WFIT made its special &lsquo;Oktoberfund&rsquo; Kolsch beer at Brock&rsquo;s Home Brew Supply for the 2013 Fall Fund Drive.</p><p>Here&rsquo;s the photo slide show of our beer making experience!</p> Fri, 11 Oct 2013 17:21:26 +0000 George Wilson 27184 at http://wfit.org The Making Of WFIT's Special "Oktoberfund" Home Brew! Residents Gather To Show Support For A Lagoon In Crisis http://wfit.org/post/residents-gather-show-support-lagoon-crisis <p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 11pt; font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;">Thousands of concerned citizens gathered this past Saturday to show their support for the Indian River Lagoon. Since January of this year, hundreds of manatees, dolphins and brown pelicans have died. Experts don&rsquo;t know the exact cause of the die off but suspect it is a combination of numerous factors including but not limited to; fertilizer runoff, septic tanks, algae blooms, climate change and more.</p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 11pt; font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;">&nbsp;</p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 11pt; font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;">People gathered at eight different locations all along the Indian River Lagoon, which runs 156 miles and through 6 counties on the east coast of Florida. The event was part of the National Estuaries day celebration. Hands Across the Lagoon was organized to call attention to the toxic waters and declining state of our lagoon and to ask local leaders to make the health of the lagoon a top priority.
