Good day everyone we hope you enjoy reading our April newsletter!
Spring Has Arrived! – As we say our final goodbye to the snow that means MUD season! Do we let the dogs walk/run in the mud? YES! Do we let them dig and roll in the mud? YES! We let dogs be dogs here and they are guaranteed to get dirty. Each dog does get rinsed before coming inside and being sent home. Your pup may be damp on departure so please put an extra towel down in your car or ask us for one if needed!
April Fundraiser – We have a Crafters Market Fundraiser on that features products from local small businesses/vendors with portions of sales being donated to Finding Them Homes rescue. From March 15 to April 10 we have Leah Lawson who is selling super cute handmade dish cloths. We also have L&J D-Zigns selling an amazing variety of wood signs. We will have another set of small businesses starting April 12 – check out our Facebook page for details! All items are on display in our reception areas. Lots of great gift ideas and fun items to buy – we hope you see something you like!
Precious Paws Rescue Bottle Collection – We are continuously collecting any bottles/can that contained alcohol for our friends at Precious Paws. Please consider donating your empties to an amazing rescue!
Easter Holiday – We will be closed to the public for Good Friday on Friday, April 2 as well as Sunday, April 4 for Easter Sunday. We wish everyone a very happy and safe Easter holiday!
Calling All Gardeners! – We are hosting our annual plant sale fundraising event in late May/early June and need your help please! When you are cleaning up and digging around in your gardens and garden sheds we would love any garden related items you have to donate! Please consider donating any clippings, extra seeds, bulbs, outdoor potted plants you may have! If you are thinning out your flowers we will gladly take your extras!
We would also appreciate donations of bags of potting soil, gardening accessories, bird feeders/houses, lawn ornaments, and garden tools. Have other donation ideas – please let us know!
