Each year after Thanksgiving, shoppers rush to the stores to get the best bargain. Black Friday…Cyber Monday..then there’s Giving Tuesday! It costs us $15 per day, per animal for food and shelter alone. Give the gift of love this holiday season and join thousands of Americans in donating to worthwhile causes. Tuesday, November 28th is Giving Tuesday! Whether it be donating your time or making a monetary donation, we believe our adoptable animals are worth it! You can donate through our website, over the phone or come in to our shelter where you can also learn about volunteer opportunities!
Pictures with Santa!
Join us for our Annual Pictures with Santa! Bring your fuzzy elves in to have their photo taken with the one and only Santa Clause! Only $7 per photo, it’s worth it to have holiday memories to cherish! Come to Murdale True Value on Saturday, December 2nd, from 10:00-2:00. We will also have some of our adoptable pets spreading the holiday cheer!
We team up with the Murphysboro Elks Club and hold our Annual Trivia Night sometime in April each year. The night is always a hit with fun trivia, a huge silent auction, cash bar and other games and prizes! It is $15.00 per person or $120.00 for teams of 8! Keep checking our events page and social media pages to find out about Trivia Night 2018!
Our Annual Golf Scramble is held in late April/early May each year. For players it is a great day of golf with 18 holes and lunch and beverages included for $100.00 per player. Teams of 4.
Not a golfer? What better way to showcase your business and/or your support of St. Francis CARE than sponsoring a golf hole! We will keep you posted for St. Francis Golf Scramble 2018!
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.
