Our thanks to young Cadence, who made a Christmas time donation to help all of our animals in need. She recently visited us for her Hero tour and had a fun time visiting with the cats, dogs, and even getting to meet an adorable puppy. We appreciate Cadence’s generosity and hope to see her again real soon!

Delaney, Lydia, and Emily

When December rolls around, most people are looking forward to Santa’s annual visit bearing presents. For the AWS, we look forward to Delaney. For over 5 years now, she has been regularly visiting the shelter around her birthday with donations she’s received in lieu of present for herself. This time, her sister Lydia and friend Emily accompanied her with a very generous donation of their own. These industrious young ladies held bracelet-making classes at their school and donated all proceeds to the AWS, which resulted in quite the hefty sum. We are very thankful to all three for all the work they’ve done and donations they’ve made to the shelter. We look forward to seeing them all again soon.

Most people, young and old, simply set aside change they accumulate. They’ll leave it on a table, toss it in a jar, forget to take it out of their jeans before going in the wash, etc. But some, like young Chance here, know that every little cent can make a difference. Chance got together all of his excess change and turned it into a generous donation to the AWS. On top of that, he brought in even more when he arrived for his Hero Tour. Thanks for your generosity Chance!

Anonymous Donation

Wouldn’t you think it would take a lifetime to fill this jug with pennies??  Not according to the donor who brought it to AWS!  This isn’t the first time he has filled a jug for the animals.  He didn’t want any recognition for this gift but we wanted to share his generousity with you!

Jocelyn has wonderful friends and family!  When she celebrated her birthday recently she asked that they bring gifts for the AWS pets instead of for her.  And boy did they!  Kitten Food, Dog Food, Cat Litter, Treats and even a PetLife Gift Certificate!  You have a big heart Jocelyn, thank you!
