The soup off is coming up quick!!

We have some great soups entered! And some fun raffles coming in!

Do you have a raffle you'd like to donate? Fantastic! We need them to help make this such a successful event for the many dogs and cats in our care!
Please message us or drop it off at Ayres any day now to March 6th!

Do you have a soup or chowder that you want to show off? Perfect! Message us and we will get you the sign up sheet! That is what is going to help draw people out - and it is free to enter your soups for others to taste!

Want to come and enjoy good animal loving company, raffles, soup tasting, the great Hales Mills Country Club and listen to the Awesome Jenna Sue - then come visit us on March 8th from 2 pm to 4 pm!

This handsome guy is Peter!
Peter is a middle aged man of about 5 to 7 years old. He is a hound guy and weighs about 55 pounds. Peter was found not far from the shelter, but noone ever came looking for him.

Peter LOVES people and kids, and gets along with kitties. He rides well in the car, seems to be housebroken and enjoys catching snowballs. He is a sweet, cuddly guy looking for a home with no other dogs.

Can you help us find that for him?

Please share Peter!

Nikki here. Just popping in to see if anyone has realized they want to come, meet me and make me apart of their family. Can you believe with all the social media attention on me that noone has come to see me?
I cannot believe it either!
I think I am pretty great!
And so does my shelter family!
I may need a home with no other dogs or kitties, but my love of people makes up for it.
I promise!
I also have a big enough heart, enough of a tail wag, and enough silliness to make up for a whole houseful of animals. 🐾🥰

Please share me and help my family find me!

Nikki is about 6 years old. 60 pounds. Housebroken. Loves her crate. Loves to go for rides. #operationgetnikkiadopted
