Shelter Garage Sale Sept. 13th

Thanks to the generosity of many folks, the shelter is full to the brim with donated items.  Many are things we never use or just have too many to conveniently store.  On Saturday, September 13th, a shelter garage sale will be held from 10 – 4.  There are collars, leashes, bowls, carriers, crates, grooming supplies, dog clothes, toys and lots more.  Items will not be priced and we’ll only ask for an appropriate donation to the shelter.  Please pass the word to anyone you know who might be in need of supplies for their critters.
