We then will donate the finished items - baby blankets, lap robes, nap blankets, bibs, hats, etc. - to Kingman Regional Medical Center, the Birth Center, nursing homes, local residents and many others. Another special project we need help with is containers, brushes and cleaner for false teeth, which will be donated to those in need at our local care units.

The club meets the second Tuesday of each month at the Rebekah Lodge Hall. For more information, call (928) 692-2860.

Applications and instructions can be found on our website: Applications can also be picked up at our adoption center at 1001 Buchanan St. in Kingman on Wednesdays and Saturdays between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. only. In order for this program to be on-going, we are requesting that the community donate generously to help with this effort to stop unwanted litters. Help SPOT work! Mail donations to P.O.

Let's work together to put Kingman on the map for the least number of senseless deaths for dogs. So far we have spayed six dogs in the community. Please take advantage of this opportunity to do your part and get your dogs spayed or neutered. The application is easy to fill out and little documentation is required.
