    About Canine Companions Rescue Center:
    Canine Companions Rescue Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 2004 for the purpose of working with the community and area animal control agencies to promote the adoption of dogs without families. It is our goal to rescue dogs with good family potential. If our adopters and our dogs are both happier after the match, then we've done our job!

    Our adoption fee for all of our dogs, regardless of breed, is $200 for adults and $275 for puppies. As part of this fee we will bring your dog up to date medically, including a spay or neuter. The adoption fee also includes a post-adoption vet visit with one of CCRC vets. For more details on what is covered, please see our Health Statement on the Adoption Application page. These services would run over $300 at the vet, so adopting a rescue dog makes good financial sense!

  • | 7:30pm - 9:00pm | Local Events, addiction, recovery, substance use disorders
    - Intervention to Durable Recovery: The Power of Family will be presented on Tuesday November 21, 2017, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm (Book sale/signing following the presentation) by Debra Jay and Jeff Jay; best-selling authors, speakers, trainers and counselors. Addiction is often described as a “family condition” – but families have often been left out of the recovery equation. Involved, supportive families play a critical role in the recovery process, from initiation through long-term recovery, and families provide an important reservoir of influence and support towards making lasting sobriety a reality. Through extensive work in intervention and family recovery, Debra Jay and Jeff Jay have developed highly effective, detailed Intervention and Structured Family Recovery™ processes that unlock the secrets of lasting sobriety – techniques that help addicted physicians and pilots attain lasting recovery - and make them available to families. The intervention process starts with a concerned family and the Structured Family Recovery™ process ends with a family recovery team that maximizes the potential for a successful outcome for all involved. This presentation will describe how to do an intervention and how to build a recovery team that unites the person with addiction and his/her family in working towards the common goal of sustained recovery. The presentation will provide practical, helpful, hopeful information about intervention and family recovery that will both revolutionize recovery and bring recovery back to its roots. Jeff and Debra Jay are dynamic, highly experienced speakers, whose materials are liberally interwoven with compassion, humor, personal stories and real-life examples. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about substance use disorders, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent people with addiction and their families from getting help and getting well. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is provided. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of services for people with substance use disorders.

    Canine Companions Rescue Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 2004 for the purpose of working with the community and area animal control agencies to promote the adoption of dogs without families. It is our goal to rescue dogs with good family potential. If our adopters and our dogs are both happier after the match, then we've done our job!

    Our adoption fee for all of our dogs, regardless of breed, is $200 for adults and $275 for puppies. As part of this fee we will bring your dog up to date medically, including a spay or neuter. The adoption fee also includes a post-adoption vet visit with one of CCRC vets. For more details on what is covered, please see our Health Statement on the Adoption Application page. These services would run over $300 at the vet, so adopting a rescue dog makes good financial sense!

    - Personal Medicine: Becoming Active Agents in Our Own Recovery will be presented on Tuesday November 28, 2017, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Jerry Fouchey, BS, MA, SpA, CADC; Dawn Farm Outpatient and Personal Medicine therapist. Personal Medicine is any activity a person adopts because it helps them feel better and increases their sense of “Wellness.” When we talk about Personal Medicine, we are not talking about a prescription ordered by a doctor, nor are we talking about over-the-counter medications, vitamins, herbal remedies or street drugs. Personal Medicine is all about “Skills not Pills;” or things we do, not things we take. In other words, Personal Medicine is the behaviors and habits we develop that help us enjoy life and address concerns we have for various areas of our lives. Conditions such as sleep disturbance, psychiatric symptoms including anxiety and depression, and chronic pain can challenge the substance use disorder recovery process. For many people, these symptoms are the understandable, situational responses to the difficult circumstances in which they find themselves when they enter treatment. For others, these symptoms may simply be the protracted effects of long-term substance abuse. And some people in early recovery will already have, or eventually receive, a verifiable mental health diagnosis. Experience suggests that most of these concerns can best be effectively managed, at least in part, through behavioral interventions. The tendency towards over-reliance on standard medical practice for co-occurring conditions often relegates the person in recovery to the role of a passive recipient of a doctor’s care; usually a prescribed medication. Medications are often marginally effective, can generate unwanted side effects and don’t necessarily lead to better quality of life. Further, new prescriptions provided in early recovery can be given credit for improvements that are more accurately attributed to the processes of treatment and recovery. Personal Medicine is designed to address these concerns. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about substance use disorders, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent people with addiction and their families from getting help and getting well.

    Oakland County Market is a mainstay for providing grower-direct fresh produce and flowers to county residents and visitors. The maket hosts more than 100 farmers and artisans, representing 17 Michigan counties.

    A producer-direct market, participating vendors must grow or make the products that they bring for sale during the main season (May-October). During the off season (November-April), vendors may bring approved farm market type items no produced by themselves.

    MORE THAN JUST FRUITS AND VEGGIES

    Shoppers will find fresh vegetables, fruits and baked goods as well as flowers, artisan crafts and more.

    Spend the day at the market and enjoy a breakfast sandwich or barbeque lunch served by market vendors.

    The market also hosts many special events and educational programs and can be rented by the public for various purposes.

    Not all vendors participate in the market year-round; many are seasonal.

    Canine Companions Rescue Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 2004 for the purpose of working with the community and area animal control agencies to promote the adoption of dogs without families. It is our goal to rescue dogs with good family potential. If our adopters and our dogs are both happier after the match, then we've done our job!

    Our adoption fee for all of our dogs, regardless of breed, is $200 for adults and $275 for puppies. As part of this fee we will bring your dog up to date medically, including a spay or neuter. The adoption fee also includes a post-adoption vet visit with one of CCRC vets. For more details on what is covered, please see our Health Statement on the Adoption Application page. These services would run over $300 at the vet, so adopting a rescue dog makes good financial sense!

  • - On December 7, 1941 at 7:55AM (local time), "a date that will live in infamy," nearly 200 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, long considered the US "Gibraltar of the Pacific." The raid, which lasted little more than one hour, left nearly 3,000 dead. Almost the entire US Pacific Fleet was at anchor there, and few ships escaped damage. Several were sunk or disabled, while 200 US aircraft on the ground were destroyed. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about immediate US entry into WWII, a declaration of war being requested by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by Congress December 8, 1941.

  • | 7:00am - 1:30pm | Shopping, farmers market
    - FROM FARM TO FAMILY

    Oakland County Market is a mainstay for providing grower-direct fresh produce and flowers to county residents and visitors. The maket hosts more than 100 farmers and artisans, representing 17 Michigan counties.

    A producer-direct market, participating vendors must grow or make the products that they bring for sale during the main season (May-October). During the off season (November-April), vendors may bring approved farm market type items no produced by themselves.

    MORE THAN JUST FRUITS AND VEGGIES

    Shoppers will find fresh vegetables, fruits and baked goods as well as flowers, artisan crafts and more.

    Spend the day at the market and enjoy a breakfast sandwich or barbeque lunch served by market vendors.

    The market also hosts many special events and educational programs and can be rented by the public for various purposes.

    Not all vendors participate in the market year-round; many are seasonal.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity!
