Photos with Santa Paws – See you next year! !
Thank you to our supporters and new donors who participated in our 5th year for the PHOTOS WITH SANTA PAWS. It is one of our favorite fundraiser’s for the year. It is a great opportunity to have that perfect shot of your animal with Santa Paws and help the local homeless animals. We raised nearly $5,000 with our two days of photo shoots.
Our special thanks to the following for sponsoring this event:
THE 2018 AVHS Pet Photo Calendars are available to purchase.
Thank you to our calendar sponsors!
100% of the proceeds goes to help the lost and abandoned animals at the AVHS shelter.
Thank you supporters and donors! We have a generous donor who matched $20,000 to our match challenge donations made during the month of November. A longtime donor has offered to match – DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR. This is a tremendous gift to the homeless and abandoned animals. We appreciate your GENEROUS SUPPORT to maximize this chance to save so many more lives by this support. $50 will treat twice as many animals with curable illnesses or injury. $100 will become $200 and will spay and neuter twice as many animals. Every adoptable animal that leaves our shelter is altered before it goes to its furrever home!
We raised $$$ . There has never been a more powerful time to give. Your gift will go twice as far to help the animals in need. Your gift was matched – Dollar for Dollar! On behalf of the animals who will be served by your generosity, thank you. A dollar, ten dollars, twenty dollars all will make a difference.
