Brindle Boxer

Brindle BoxerHi, there. I’m a female brindle boxer mix with a white chest. I’m about 2-3 years old and almost look like I could be pure boxer but I still have a tail, which I use constantly for wagging. I am a very happy girl who loves attention. Other dogs aren’t a problem for me. I do have a lot of energy and love to give to you. Please come in and see me and make me part of your family. My docket number is 12147, at the St. Joseph County Animal Control Shelter located at 652 E. Main St., Centreville, MI. Animal Control is open Monday – Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The first Saturday of each month AC is open for adoptions from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon. Their phone number is 269-467-6475. Please visit the Animal Rescue Fund website at www.arfund.org to see more adoptable pets. NOTE: ARF will pay for the spay/neuter of ANY adopted pet from animal control. This is done at the Humane Society in Kalamazoo. If the owner wants to go to a local vet, the same amount will be given to that vet. This is for a limited number of adoptions, so come in and take advantage of this helping hand from ARF. Up-Cycled Pets needs reliable foster homes so some pets can learn more about living in a safe home before adoption. Go to www.upcycledpets.com for more information about how to help this group. Also, a rabies shot is available free of charge through the Kalamazoo Humane Society by contacting Animal Rescue Fund (269-718-3775). There are 10 shots available on a first come, first served basis. No substitutions are available. The Kalamazoo Humane Society is the only location for the offer.

The St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners approved a tuition-reimbursement policy for county employees.

Spearheaded by Commissioner Don Eaton, the program allows county employees to receive reimbursement up to 100 percent of tuition cost per semester at an accredited college, university or trade school.

The course must be for credit or extended-education purposes.

County administrator Pat Yoder said the classes must be relevant to the line of work in which the employee is hired to perform.

The opportunity is available, as well, for an employee seeking to fulfill specific requirements for a degree program in which the employee is currently enrolled.

Reimbursement is limited to $3,500 per calendar year, per employee, and available only if the employee earns a grade of C or better.
