Freya stopped by with her mom Katherine to drop off a HUGE surprise for their friends here at the Humane Society – 106 KONG toys! We were in desperate need of KONGs for the dogs here, and Freya stepped up big time. Freya is quite the Instagram star (@freyatheshepsky) with over 2000 followers, and she asked the fantastic people at KONG to send some toys over to give to her shelter friends.

A HUGE thank you to Katherina, Freya and KONG for the amazing donation!

This is George, and he George collected donations for his 7th Birthday! He has done this in the past as well – what a generous young man! Thank you George!

Morgan stopped in today to donate money she collected in lieu of birthday gifts for her 8th birthday! Thank you for being so selfless and caring about the animals Morgan!


Pat and Ken from Border City Comics stopped by to drop off donations they gathered from Free Comic Book Day. They raised $130 from a raffle, and collected tons of supplies for the animals here! Thank you so much Pat and Ken, and everyone who came out to Border City Comics for Free Comic Book Day!

One lucky person who attended our Hallowoof Fun Run & Walk back in October won a custom portrait of their pet by talented local artist Laura Pepper. Laura sent over the final product, and it is so wonderful that we just had to share!

Below is a photo of the winner’s dog Eris, and beneath that is Laura’s beautiful portrait.

Ben and his big brother Jack stopped by recently to pick up a Justice stuffed animal.  They were so inspired by Justice’s story that when Ben’s birthday came around he decided to ask for donations for animals in need instead of gifts.  Both of them came in this afternoon to drop off their donation and to try to tempt their mom into bringing home a new furry friend!  Keep trying boys – maybe one of the animals your donation helps will be your new buddy!

These lovely bird toys were donated by Rosie the bird..and her Mum Kelly! She had seen online that we have budgies looking for a new home, and thought they’d like some toys – so she brought in a bunch that she made!

Thank you for thinking of the other birds Rosie and Kelly!
