BECOME ONE OF OUR 'FABULOUS 500' FRIENDS
JUST $10.00 A MONTH . . .

Yes, just $10.00 each month from folks like you can help us by reducing the
amount of time we have to spend on fund raising activities!

With our limited number of volunteers and the increasing burden of hands-on time needed to care for the animals, fund raising, while a necessary function, is tremendously time consuming. 

We're looking for 500 FABULOUS FRIENDS who will help us with a $10.00 per month for 12 months donation.  Donations made by check can be sent to PO Box 452, Philippi WV 26416 or if you'd prefer to enroll in an automatic monthly donation program via PAYPAL, you can begin your enrollment by clicking on the button below.  You DO NOT need a PayPal account to use this feature.

YOUR SUPPORT FOR OUR 'FABULOUS 500' FUND RAISER WILL BE APPRECIATED MORE THAN YOU KNOW!

(All donations are tax deductible)
YOUR DONATION TODAY WILL HELP US CONTINUE
TO CARE FOR THE PETS TOMORROW!

ADOPTING
SHELTER PETS WITH TRUST ISSUES

Shelter pets that exhibit shyness on meeting new people are very often overlooked for adoption, but people who are willing to invest some time and patience with these pets are rewarded with a lifetime of love and loyalty.

FEATURE CAT . . .
Petite Georgie Girl is a very sweet, lovable two year old, but is shy on meeting new people. Although she enjoys being petted by our volunteers, she’s not fond of being picked up. Georgie Girl is a small, beautiful kitty with very tiny paws. Her black and white coat is thick and shiny, and she has cute baby like meow when she’s begging for attention. We know this special young lady has every potential to be someone’s cherished companion. The only questions are when that will happen for her and who will give her that chance?

FEATURE DOG . . .
Howie, a stunningly handsome Bluetick Hound,  has been at our shelter for over a year---patiently waiting for his chance for a forever home This 75 pound boy is friendly and loves running in the fenced field with his canine friends. He has a soft bed in his pen and has accepted shelter life, but we know he would be so happy to have a home of his own. Despite nine years of age, Howie has a great deal of energy and would do well in a home with lots of space for exercise and lots of people to play with. We’re hoping someone will step up and offer a forever home to this very deserving senior dog.
