Our pet pick of the week is Mandy a 6-and-a-half-year-old Lab mix. She is a very sweet girl who likes to be around people, including children. She is, however, particular about the dogs she plays with. An ideal day for Mandy is a ride in the car with a fun destination planned like a swim in the lake or the ocean followed by a snooze curled up on the couch. Stop by and meet Mandy. Currently, Mandy's adoption fee is reduced by $50 during our Forget-Me-Not special. Through the end of April the adoption fee for select adult dogs is $50 off and the fee for adult cats is reduced to just $25. We have dozens upon dozens of fabulous pets who are looking for homes and will make excellent companions.

Are you a movie fan? Have we got a deal for you. To raise funds to provide care for all the animals at the shelter we are selling an amazing coupon book to Flagship Cinema. For only $25 you get $200 worth of savings: free tickets, free popcorn, BOGO's etc. It's a great little fundraiser for us and a great deal for you so stop by, pick up your coupon booklet and enjoy the movies while helping homeless animals. They will make a great Easter gift or treat for your mom on Mother's Day. There's a limited supply so hurry in to the shelter to buy your booklet today.
