Door County Humane Society Open House: Dec 12th

Check it out - great cause.

For Immediate Release – December 2, 2009
Contact: Carrie Counihan, Executive Director, DCHS 746.1111 x4


Stockings are hung on each kennel door, and the Humane Society lobby
is brightly decorated around every cat cage. Preparations are
underway for the annual Door County Humane Society Open House, set for
Saturday, December 12 from noon to 4:00pm. All DCHS members and those
who are curious about the shelter are invited to see first-hand how
the homeless pets of Door County are cared for until reunited with
their families, or adopted into a devoted new home.

Lots of loving pets, good conversation, and light refreshments are
promised for those who attend the Open House at the DCHS facility
across from Cherryland Airport at 3475 Park Drive (County PD). This
is an informal and relaxed opportunity to visit the shelter and meet
the people who are dedicated to the abandoned and lost animals of Door
County. Questions are welcome!

More than 700 animals a year find tender attention, medical care,
regular food, and warm beds at the Door County Humane Society, and the
need is outgrowing the space available. The Humane Society depends on
private donations to cover 95% of its yearly budget, so a donation of
cash, cat litter, Purina Cat Chow, or paper towels would be much
appreciated. For those looking for a special gift, DCHS logo T-shirts
and caps will be available for purchase – a colorful way to support
the shelter.
