A perfect gift this holiday season – giving the gift of life! You can be the difference in the life of a homeless dog by purchasing an ornament from Shelby Humane Society as a gift for everyone on your list.
Shelby Humane Society’s annual Ornament Sale takes place until January 2, 2016 at Patton Chapel Animal Clinic.
Purchasing an ornament for $60 enables Shelby Humane Society to continue to save lives by transporting dogs from our shelter, where there is heavy over-population, to near-empty partner shelters in northern states that have legislation to control their pet population including spay/neuter and enforcement of leash laws.
Each ornament features a picture of a Shelby Humane Society dog awaiting transport in a decorative frame.
The Shelby Humane Society Shelter Partner program has transported 8,000 dogs north since 2006. Most dogs transferred are placed with adoptive families within a few days of becoming available for adoption at our partner shelters. Shelby Humane Society volunteers drive the Shelter Partners van up to 2-3 days to deliver the pets to the waiting shelters.
Shelby Humane Society receives over 5,000 animals annually and relies heavily on individual donations and fundraisers to continue our mission and life-saving work.
