Every holiday season there are thousands of discarded pets in shelters who won’t get the chance to feel the excitement & joy of Christmas morning with their family. Let’s make a difference!
Join us for our Annual Christmas Eve Howliday Magic Event. A night full of excitement and joy, specifically for our adult large breed dogs and our adult cats who are so often passed over for adoption simply due to their age or size.
We provide a fire, warm beverages to keep you toasty warm, and some sweets to keep you..well..sweet.
You provide the love and the fun stuff. Please bring big dog appropriate toys (no stuffing, please), treats, cat toys, chewies (did I mention TOYS?), Catnip, Kongs and peanut butter for stuffing, Nylabones, tuff toys to chew and snuggle with, feather toys to chase…
Dress in your warmest grubbies, bring a folding chair if you’d like and join us on Christmas Eve from 6:00-8:00.
