Operation SNIP continues today. 16 animals were seen yesterday at the clinic in our first day. By the end of the week our goal is 60. Help us keep going. Until the end of the month we have a generous $1000US matching grant for all SNIP fundraising. That would allow us to fix another 40 animals. Please join us today at Feliz Bar & Grill for BINGO at 4pm. Then Cook Off Desserts at Average Joe's at 6pm.
Thank you for your support.
