Come meet your new best friend!
Thanks to everyone who came out to 12 Strays of Christmas!
This year's event brought people in the community together to celebrate the spirit of the season and interact with the shelter animals. Families brought in their children to have a breakfast with Santa and play with puppies. Hot cocoa and donuts were aplenty, as was all of the love given to the litters of puppies. The puppies were a huge hit and everyone fell in love! The bigger dogs received love too, and alumnus of the shelter came back to show off their new families and pose with Santa. Local artisans set up shop inside and out of the shelter and offered patrons an array of holiday shopping options: dog beds, scarves, jewelry, homemade goodies, and more!
The day was a huge success and made possible with the generous support of Dr. Paul Davis, DDS.

Adoptions are Back at PetSmart!
January 19 saw the return of FAHS at PetSmart. Our volunteers helped prepare five puppies and one adult for the event. The puppies were a huge hit and even found some wonderful homes! Adoptions are planned for the third Saturday of each month. Come see us at the next one.
Special thank you to everyone who came out and the PetSmart staff for all of their help throughout the day.
