Animal Tales


Tails & Trails 2021

Join us for Live Tales of Saved Lives! From April 28 - 30, we'll be on Facebook LIVE daily at 3PM telling the true stories of animals who have come to our shelter, and how we are helping them on their journey to their forever home.

Then, on May 1, meet us at noon at Camp Sacajawea in Sparta for an in-person dog walk event! While following safety protocols, we'll be walking our dogs, enjoying vendors and activities, live music, food, and so much more!

This is a great opportunity to support the shelter. You can become a Sponsored Walker by having friends and family donate to your campaign, and have the opportunity to win prizes! If you work for or own a company/organization that loves animals, you can sponsor the event at one of four different levels! And don't forget, we need vendors, too!

For more information or to show your support, check out our webpage for the event. We can't wait to see you virtually and in person!
