Emily stopped by with Penelope. Penelope is a 5-year-old Terrier mix that came to the Humane Society from Flint, MI last week. She is an easy going girl who walks great on a leash! We do not have any history of how she is with other animals or children. 

 

Emily discussed End of Year Giving - At this time of year, as many nonprofits are, they  are looking to our community for support. They are asking that the community consider a year-end gift to HSWM. They can do this online at www.hswestmi.org/give.

Here is something great for Mom and Dad and the kids. It's the Winter Escape this Friday, December 14 from 6 - 9 PM for our Kids Night Out event Winter Escape! There will be a movie, food, crafts, and more! This event is for children ages 7-10 and it is $20 per child ($10 for each additional sibling). Register by emailing: kshippy@hswestmi.org.

Tomorrow is Dine to Donate (13th) - Join HSWM at Slows BarBQ in the Downtown Market for great food for a great cause! 15% of sales from the day will be donated.
