As we approach the Holiday Season our minds are often occupied by thoughts of family get-togethers, sharing and gifts. During this time of giving, please consider making holiday gift donations to the shelter in the names of family members, friends, and co-workers. A wonderful idea is to ask your family members to contribute a donation to the shelter in your name, rather than to buy you a present. Most traditional gifts go to just one person; but a donation to the shelter supports the humane and loving care of hundreds of animals in need - as well as giving you the warm feeling that you have brightened the lives of these pets while they wait through the holidays for their "forever homes." For each designated gift, we will send a letter to your family member or friend acknowledging your holiday donation in their name.
Our featured pet this week is Penny, a cheerful and good-natured Beagle-mix who makes up for her smaller size with plenty of energy and personality. Penny loves going for walks and playing outside. She is a terrific exercise companion on those frosty mornings when you would prefer to pull the covers over your head! She will reward your efforts with affection and loyalty. Penny is a bright girl who enjoys learning new things and simply spending time with the people she loves.
What if you would like to support the shelter, but do not have any money to spare during these difficult economic times? Contact our staff to find out about volunteer opportunities. You can also be creative and come up with a fundraiser through your workplace, local school, or other organization. Our staff would be happy to provide some examples of successful and innovative fundraisers our community members have had in the past!
