WASHBURN COUNTY AREA HUMANE SOCIETY
TREE OF LIGHTS AND OPEN HOUSE
Thanks to each of you who attended, donated, bought gift card tree ornaments and raffle tickets, enjoyed and/or donated refreshments, and took a tour and were so complimentary of this new animal shelter.
It was a pleasure to welcome each of you to the 2018 Tree Lighting/Open House. Your approval of this animal shelter is a wonderful reinforcement for the staff, volunteers, and Board as all have been excited to share it with you.
The annual Tree Lighting is a very special time to honor or memorialize special pets who have blessed our lives. Each donation in their memory is very appreciated and important to continue to fund WCAHS. If you looked and were unable to find an ornament in your pet's honor/memory, please accept our heartfelt apology. All tree ornaments will be made and hung on the outside tree by Monday.
It was a feel-good, pleasant day for all, especially the WCAHS animals who loved all the attention they received and they thank you...
UPDATE ON KURANDA BED DONATIONS
To the individuals who have sent us Kuranda beds so far:
Rufus (Plot Hound), Bella (Rottweiler) and Zeus (Border Collie Mix) say thank you to the people who have already ordered Kuranda Beds!!!! They love them and we chose to first give them to the ones who needed them most. Rufus who is 8 plus years old and has been with us since May...Bella who is only 6 plus years old, but with her large breed has difficulty getting up off the floor...and last but not least Zeus who came in to us as a stray in really rough shape, come to find out he is only 4 to 5 years old, but still has issues with getting up off the floor and being active due to malnourishment and what ever else he may have had to deal with in his life so far! Thank you for the beds and helping to make the animals more comfortable while waiting for their new forever homes!!!!

Sather Jewelry of Spooner is promoting adoptions from WCAHS by offering a $50 gift certificate, good for anything in their store, when you adopt a dog or cat from us. We're grateful for this extremely generous donation and if you've been thinking about adding a furry member to your household, now is the time!
Many people have been asking about our needs so we thought we would create an Amazon Wish List. We put together a list of everyday needs and tried to make it easy for those who would like to help out by giving a wide range of options. Items can be shipping directly to the shelter. There is an address on file with the list when you check out.
THANK YOU to all of you for always being so supportive. Click on the Amazon wish list logo above to go to our wish list.
