REDUCE SNIPS (Spay and Neuter is a Positive Solution) will be on hand to highlight the importance of reducing the animal population, the excess of homeless pets and explain the reality of the upcoming 'kitten season'. SNIPS sells hand crafted gift items, many made using re-purposed materials, to raise funds used to offer low and no cost public spay and neuter opportunities. SNIPS volunteers will be making and selling gift items along with delicious baked goods. They will also be helping to make pet toys!

All of our animals are made in the US I was recycled, too! and come with a multi-point inspection. Standard features include spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations and microchip. Many special features are also available and we have lots of makes and models to choose from! We need to make room for the 2017 models that will be arriving soon. There will be an adoption special for the day. Also, WHS will be kicking off our Shoe Drive. We will be collecting gently worn, used and new shoes (no torn shoes, please). Recycle those shoes you longer want by putting rubber bands or string around shoe pairs & drop them in a bag at the Adoption Center or at Bare Bones Boutique. Our Bare Bones Boutique will have an assortment of gently used pet items for sale.
