    Most pet owners will agree that pets are like family.  Keeping our furry family members safe is a number one priority, but dogs and cats often have a tendency to wander away and get lost. Making sure your pet is microchipped is one of the best ways to ensure they return home.  Most veterinary clinics keep microchips on hand so your pet can be implanted at your convenience. Here at the Camden Hospital for Animals, we carry HomeAgain microchips.

    I occasionally read social media posts from disappointed shoppers upset with how their eco product was packaged.  The thing is often these purchases are via Amazon.  A lot of indie businesses wanting to grow sell thru Amazon.  A lot of people wanting free shipping purchase through Amazon.  It’s not easy being a small business and competing with Amazon and their free shipping.  If you want your items to arrive responsibly packed purchase directly from the maker.

  • Sunday, May 20, 2018 - 9:15pm

       We just completed the “School of Prophetic Trainers” held at the Missions Church in Vacaville California. While waiting for the Sunday service to begin this morning, I began to mediate upon Jesus when these thoughts came to my heart. 

      It seems God is more interested in how much of Christ divine nature and the light of His glory that we abide in and His love than the influence we have, our scope of ministry, the size of our congregation or whom we know and our good works.
