We have many reasons to say THANK YOU today!
 
First of all, thank you to Mr. Gene Culley of Jorgensen Laboratories, Inc.  Jorgensen Labs has been supplying the veterinary profession since 1965, and today they supplied us, free of charge, with a new IV pump as well as a number of other products from their line of over 4500.
 
 
Second, thank you to Mr. Dick Van Patten and his son for coming by with the Natural Balance truck and donating much needed dog food. We hope to become a regular stop on the truck's donation route!
 
 
 
 
And finally, our thanks to Mr. David Hasselhoff, his daughter Taylor, and their crew for helping with all of the donations and sprucing up the place.  They can be seen unloading the Natural Balance truck (above), as well as painting, installing new steps, and planting flowers (below).

Chopper gets to meet with David Hasselhoff during his visit to the shelter.  Chopper is too young to remember "Knight Rider" or "Baywatch" but plans to check out Mr. Hasselhoff's more recent ventures as soon as he gets adopted and has access to a television set!  
 
Great news!  "The Hoff" was so impressed with Chopper, he adopted him!
