Getting into the holiday spirit... DRHS style!

Over 100 people attending our  Santa Paws event this year 
and over 50 animals were welcomed to sit on Santa's lap.  Children also had the opportunity to make Christmas presents for their animals including  dog and cat treats and toys! 

Santa Paws

Baby it's Cold Outside

Let's take a Walk - Massaging petroleum jelly or other paw protectants into paw pads before going outside can help protect from salt and chemical agents. Booties provide even more coverage and can also prevent sand and salt from getting lodged between bare toes and causing irritation. Use pet-friendly ice melts whenever possible.

Thank you to Bryant Elementary for hosting a supply drive that collected a load of helpful supplies containing over 20 enrichment toys, 70 rolls of paper towels and 80 cans of food! Their support and kindness will help us care for thousands of animals in the tri-state area until they find their homes.
