Prevent-A-Litter Month 2014 Results

Thank you to the 18 area veterinary clinics who participated in the $15 discount on spay/neuter surgeries during our February- Prevent a Litter Month campaign.  And, thanks to the individuals who helped to control the pet population by altering 192 pets during this year's campaign.   

Better In Show-Take 11 Wrap Up

Better in Show - Take 11 was another fun and successful event. Thanks to all of our supporters who turned out to participate in the activities, and hang out at the Eau Claire Indoor Sports Center. This year was a great success, with over 800 people and 236 pets attending! We hope everyone who came had a blast, and we hope to see you next year, at "Better in Show - Take 12"!

Gross proceeds of approximately $10,173.00 paid for all the expenses and netted about $4597.45 for the shelter.
