Pay it Forward:
Each year, between March and April, St. Francis CARE hosts our annual trivia night. This event brings in community members from all around, and is an enjoyable event for all! Proceeds from the team entry fees and the silent auction items go directly to our animals and our building. Entry fee per person is $15, and $120 per team. There is an 8 person max for each team, though you are allowed to play with less than 8 people. Teams are encouraged, but not required, to participate in our “best table decoration” contest.
Are you a pro golfer? What about someone who just loves to drive those fun carts around all day long? Maybe you’re someone in between. It doesn’t matter! We’d love to have you! Each May, teams of 4 golfers get together to swing their clubs for a good cause. Entry fee is $150/person, and proceeds go directly back to our babies. Lunch, snacks, and beverages (adult and non) are provided. Join us this year for a great time!
Each month, a local restaurant gives us a helping paw by participating in a “dine and donate” evening for St. Francis CARE. All you have to do is eat and enjoy. Watch our Facebook page for dates and locations. They donate a portion of proceeds back to St. Francis, and those proceeds are put back into our babies. You’re helping feed others by feeding yourself, and we appreciate it.
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 with, feather toys to chase …
Dress in your warmest grubbies, bring a folding chair if you’d like & join us on Christmas eve from 6:00 – 8:00.
