On 7/10 we spread awareness on Chronic Disease Day to educate and advocate for people who live with a chronic health conditions every day.

A chronic disease is a condition that lasts longer than one year. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, chronic disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Seven out of 10 people suffer from a form of chronic disease.

What are a few common chronic diseases?

  • ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease

Prevention

Many, but not all, chronic diseases can be prevented simply by practicing self-care. Improving and practicing a healthy lifestyle can likely reduce getting a chronic disease.

Dove Creek Equine Rescue: “When in Drought” Emergency Campaign @ "When in Drought" Emergency Campaign
Aug 10 all-day

Dove Creek Equine Rescue launches “When in Drought” Emergency Campaign

June 8th – August 17th

As you know, we are facing unprecedented drought in the Texas Panhandle this year. Decreased rainfall means less grass for our herd of horses to graze in pastures in the warmer months. With less pasture to graze we are experiencing higher feed and hay costs this year. Limited hay sources and higher prices have forced us to come up with alternate ways of feeding.

As a solution, Dove Creek Equine Rescue has launched the When in Drought emergency campaign. Our goal is to raise $20,000 in 10 weeks to make up for the increase in the cost of hay this summer. We want to continue taking in as many unwanted horses in the Panhandle as possible, but we need your help!

Will you please consider a one-time or recurring gift of $26 or more to help us meet our goal?

  • $26 buys two square bales of hay, enough to feed 4 horses for 1 day
  • $52 feeds 8 horses for 1 day
  • $104 feeds 16 horses for 1 day
  • $135 buys a 1,000-pound round bale, which feeds our entire herd of 30 horses for 2 days

All American Pet Photo Day @ All American Pet Photo Day
Aug 11 all-day

All American Pet Photo Day encourages pet owners to share their favorite pet photos on July 11th. Be sure to charge your camera and be prepared to take adorable pictures of your pets!

Whether they are the four-legged furry kind or come from the more serpentine species, click away. Fishes and birds, pigs and equine, canine and feline should all get in line for their favorite pose. If they are friends, take a few snapshots of them together! On All American Pet Photo Day, every pet gets included.

When it comes to capturing the perfect image of your loyal pal, it might take some effort. Like humans, some furry and not so furry friends are camera shy. A pocketful of treats helps ease them into the shot. If bribery doesn’t work, sometimes exercise before the photoshoot will. Another option is misdirection. Focus their attention on another area beyond the lens of the camera, and you might get the picture you want. If all else fails, wait until your sweet companion falls asleep and click away. They’re at their cutest when they’re resting anyway.

Remember to keep your pet safe and comfortable. Don’t let your pet become overheated or over-anxious. A stressed pet won’t take a good photo. Defer to your pet’s temperament, toss out the costumes, and accept the blurred selfie.
