Monroe County Animal Control Needs Help

Monroe County Animal Control Needs Help

Monroe County Animal Control in Forsyth is calling for help. The shelter is more than full, and unless some of the dogs and puppies are adopted or rescued, many will be killed in the morning.

Shelter staff hold onto the dogs as long as possible, but when the shelter is full more room has to be made for new arrivals.

Like most government shelters, Monroe County Animal Control is mandated to pick up lost, stray or injured dogs and dogs involved in criminal cases.

The shelter also picks up owner-surrendered dogs, and takes in dogs brought to the shelter by residents.

Because the law requires the shelter to keep certain categories of dogs for a specific number of days, when the shelter gets full, dogs that do not fall in those categories, such as owner-surrenders, must be adopted, rescued or killed to make room.

Central Georgians Asked to Help With Cancer Study

The American Cancer Society is asking for your help to volunteer for a new, nationwide cancer study. Bibb County ranks significantly higher than the state's average in cancer cases, and the American Cancer Society estimates close to 4000 people will be diagnosed with cancer in the county this year.

Mayor Robert Reichert and several other officials from Macon and Warner Robins pledged their support for the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study 3.

The study is the third in their Cancer Prevention Series and will help researchers understand lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer.

Anyone between the ages of 30-65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer can participate. The study requires a one-time blood sample and a lifetime commitment, but American Cancer Society's, Molly Herrin says it's easier than it sounds.

First Place 4 Health Coming to First Baptist Gray

What is First Place 4 Health?

The program is the result of a godly-desire placed in the hearts of a group of Christians in Houston, Texas in 1981.  Their desire was to establish a Christ-centered weight-control program that addressed all areas of life-physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

The program is 12-week sessions.  Members stay with the same group for an entire session,  encouraging and challenging one another to meet their fitness goals.  Each weekly goup meeting includes a weigh-in, nutritional information, class discussion, Bible Study discussion and prayer.
