Goldie celebrated her birthday today with us in our adoption center. She is such a special little girl and decided that she rather donate gifts to our dogs and cats than getting a lot of birthday presents for herself. Twenty five kids and family members came to celebrate and enjoyed meeting our animals. Goldie’s generosity left our dogs and cats with lots of new toys, food and supplies to keep our shelter clean.

Thank you Goldie, you are a very special and we hope you enjoyed your party!
