Fundraising Events

Throughout the year, we host fundraising events to benefit the shelter.  These events are a critical part of our operating budget and provide us the ability to provide all of the necessary care to each and every animal that enters our shelter.  The events also support our other programs and allow us to offer many services at no cost to the community (i.e. Cruelty Response Program, Lost and Found Services, Humane Education).


Movie Night at the Marquis Theatre

"A Christmas Gift From Bob" 

Wednesday, December 15                   

2 showings: 4:00 and 7:00pm

Admission by donation; $10 suggested.

Rated: *PG

*It touches on themes not often explored in Christmas movies, including drug addiction, mental illness and homelessness. Online reviews suggest this is appropriate for children 11+.

"Christmas gifts come in all shapes and sizes. For James (Luke Treadaway), a struggling street musician, a very special one arrives in the form of Bob, a strong-willed stray cat who wanders into James's tiny flat. Bob enriches James's life, giving him companionship, purpose, and a large, new audience. When Animal Welfare officers threaten to take Bob, the local community rallies to help James and Bob -- sparking a journey that takes the pair to places they never imagined in this heartwarming, spirit-lifting movie for the whole family."

Quilts for Sale - $400/each

Angelika Brumbaugh, friend of the shelter, is selling several quilts to benefit Homeward Bound and they are absolutely gorgeous! Each twin-size quilt took 6-7 months to make; they are 90% hand pieced and 100% hand quilted. Angelika used materials from all over the world - Australia, Germany, Japan, South Africa, France and the U.S. as well!  If you would be interested in specific measurements and seeing a photo gallery of the quilts still available, please contact Hannah Manley by email or at 802-388-1100 ext. 224.
