Homeless Animal Awareness Week
Feb 9 - 16

Help spread the word to friends and neighbors that our local animal shelters have many wonderful pets available for immediate adoption.  These shelter pets are waiting patiently for their forever homes.  You can help spread the word by posting the following hashtags to your social media:  #HR4PETS#HAAW,  #homeslessanimalawarenessweek

Despite the wet weather, we had a great turnout at O'Connor for the 6th annual Dogtoberfest.  Thank you to all that came out and supported us.  We raised close to $6,500 in ticket sales, silent auction items, donations, dog costume contest, merchandise sales and sponsorships.  We couldn't have done it without your generous support.  Many thanks go out to the awesome staff and volunteers at NACC, you always come thru to help make these events a great success. Also a big thank you to our board members that planned and organized this great annual event, your hard work always pays off.


The financial support we receive allows us to continue so many programs that help the homeless animals in our city.
