Markit Group Volunteer Day
Monday, 29 June 2015

Markit is an international financial services provider. They approached us about a group volunteer day and visited the shelter on June 10th.


The group helped with doggy baths and general socializing with dogs and cats, and had such a good time they are coming back once a month to support the shelter!

Thank You, Mecox Gardens!
Saturday, 20 June 2015

This past weekend, Mecox Gardens hosted for us a Mutts, Meows & Margaritas celebration to celebrate the end of their month-long fundraiser. Their goal was to help us raise $2500, which is the materials cost to renovate one room at the shelter. A HUGE THANK YOU to Mecox Gardens as they were able to raise $4400 for us! It was such a fun day! We talked, laughed, drank margaritas, and played with some of our adoptable and very adorable animals that were able to get some great exposure as well. Thank you again, Mecox Gardens!
