National Craft for your Shelter Day

Come celebrate National Craft for your Shelter Day with us on July 21 from noon to 2 p.m. We are asking you to help us make snuffle mats, cat toys and other goodies for our animals. We will also have vase painting for a $5 donation.

Not sure what a snuffle mat is, follow this link.

We will have limited supplies on hand but ask that you bring some as well such as rubber sink mats, fleece, old t-shirts, paper towel and toilet paper rolls. The more you bring, the more we make!

Dogs Playing For Life

Over the past couple days something exciting was happening at the shelter! We hosted a seminar by Dogs Playing for Life, and we learned all about building play groups for our dogs. This program will help us to reduce stress, improve the quality of life, and allow our dogs to play together while waiting for adoption.

Thank you to Dogs Playing for Life for visiting us and teaching us such a great seminar full of valuable information.
