Week of 10/24/15 Humane Happenings

by Eliana Aubin

Matty and Milo both say, "I'll take it!"

This week, the Sierra County Humane Society wishes to thank all our animal loving friends from all over who, at this time of the year and especially through the holidays, are remembering our organization with their generous holiday contributions and miscellaneous gifts for the little residents of Desert Haven Animal Refuge, Sierra County’s No-Kill companion animal sanctuary.

 A few days ago, Williamsburg resident Velda, who is a long-time supporter of our organization, dropped-off at the sanctuary a car load of much needed pet food items and dog and cat accessories. Sharon of Albuquerque responded once again to our recent appeal for canned pet food for the sanctuary residents. She dropped-off her very generous contribution at Paws & Claws Thrift Shoppe. The non-profit business is located adjacent to Family Dollar in TorC. It is owned and operated by our animal welfare organization.

Bedding items such as used pillows, blankets, comforters, etc. that are donated at the store but are too well-worn to be sold inside the store, are routinely saved for use at Desert Haven. They will keep our fur-boys and girls as warm and as cozy as possible this winter.

We also wish to thank several of our animal loving friends - some of them are local, others are residing out-of-state - for their on-going support of our cause through the Sierra County Humane Society Recurring Giving Program. This program lets you make your gift in easy monthly or quarterly installments. Recurring gifts mean so much to our little rescues currently residing at the no-kill sanctuary and they have a significant impact as to what we can do on an on-going basis for the unwanted, neglected and abandoned companion animals in our area.

If you would like to make a recurring gift to our 501-c-3 non-profit organization, contact us at 575-894-2639 or email us at You can also use paypal on our web site.

 For more information, you can also write to the Sierra County Humane Society & Desert Haven Animal Refuge at PO Box 638, Williamsburg. This week’s priority wish list: wire fencing and posts - canned dog & cat food – used bedding for the furry sanctuary residents. Sunflower seeds for the residents of Birdland.
