Dear Business and Community Partners,

The Bluffton and Pandora Police Departments are once again in the planning stages for holding our 6th annual National Night Out celebration. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, August 6 and will again take place at the Bluffton Community Swimming Pool from 6 p.m.-9 p.m., where free pool admission will be offered all day. 

The Bluffton, Beaverdam, and Pandora Fire and EMS Departments will also be participating in this event and those communities and surrounding areas are invited to attend. 


Help us work with stray and feral cats in Bluffton

I am currently working with stray and feral cats in Bluffton - trying to find homes, spay and neuter, etc. 

I have had to create a FB page to try to reach people as we have so many and there seems to be little interest. 

Please look at From Feral to Fabulous page. (There may be more than one page named that, but I’m referring to Bluffton.) 


 Protect baby birds - Keep cats inside

Icon viewers: 

It's a wonderful time of the year, with baby birds leaving their nests and learning how to fly. But unfortunately, it's easy for cats to catch the baby birds. This is a great time of year to keep your cat inside, and give the birds a chance to fly.
