Thanks to all those who donated to Kelsey Romanowski who is in need of a Diabetic Alert Dog. We raised over $600 in donations combined with a donation from Big Run Wolf Ranch for a grand total of $1,500 to help Kelsey get her dog. Read her story here.

We are in need of some items for the animals. Please check out our Wish List page if you can donate something.
