HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
The holidays always bring me a feeling of joy and nostalgia. It's a feeling of comfort and excitement for all of the holiday cheer that is about to happen.


I'm staring at my Christmas tree at home, wondering which one of my cats is going to try to impersonate the star at the top—calculating which ornaments will survive their holiday version of tetherball. Is it even worth decorating the bottom of my tree? Will the new tree skirt I bought end up in a heap in the corner being used as a sled? Probably. How did the dog get red glitter in his fur again? These are the questions you ask yourself as a pet owner.

When I look at the holiday decorations going up in the shelter, I think about the dogs and cats that won't have the opportunity for Christmas shenanigans.

Who is going to fill their paw-shaped stocking? As Perry Como once sang, "There's no place like home for the holidays..." and I agree. We love our shelter pets like our own, but there is no substitute for waking up at home in matching pajamas and sharing in holiday traditions.

For the month of December, we are offering $25 adoptions for select dogs and cats, so they have a family to spend the holidays with. We hope you'll consider opening your heart and home this holiday season and giving shelter pets the love they deserve.
