Clear our Christmas Tree Event

There will also be hand- made ornaments with pictures of all our adoptable pets on the tree. These ornaments will be given away to the adopters to take home as pets are adopted.   Our goal is more adoptions = less ornaments on the tree 🙂

We do this by donating our time, donating healthy dog food, mobilizing volunteers, and getting the word out about the state of rescue pets”.
