Do you know a cat in need of a castle? Do you want to do something about it?

If you answered yes, you’re in luck, thanks to the good folks at Hartland Public Library!

This weekend, they’re hosting a crafting event where you can create the cardboard castle of your dreams for your feline friends.

(Alternatively, you could build your gift for any other small animals who enjoy castles of the cardboard variety … may we suggest members of the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha Oryctolagus cuniculus?)

It’s all going down on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at Hartland Public Library in Hartland Three Corners. Bring some cardboard boxes!

There is something about these mugshots of dogs caught running in traffic that really tickles me

Adoptable pets in the Upper Valley, and one last reminder on Easter bunnies!

Our latest adoptable pets feature is now live! You can check them all out at www.vnews.com/adoptablepets.


Please think twice about buying a rabbit as an Easter gift. Over the past couple weeks, I’ve put together a thread on the Upper Valley VT/NH Facebook group showing great Easter gifts that don’t need their litter boxes changed daily for 10 years, all available from small businesses around the Upper Valley.

BTW, here’s this week’s adoptables:

Valley News photo outtakes: Twinning doggos edition

Remember this Valley News photo from Vermont’s Maple Open House Weekend, which we posted on the @vnewsuv Instagram?

Here’s another shot by James M. Patterson that didn’t make it into the paper. 🙂
