Heat for Hounds
We’re all anxious for summer but the shelter is already not looking forward to next winter’s heating bills.
Visit the Central PA Humane Society and buy a Snowflake for $1.00. Your personalized snowflake will be displayed at the shelter to show your support. All money raised will be used to defray the heating costs for the shelter. Heating expenses were through the roof last winter and are expected to be just as high next winter.
Can’t make it in to the shelter, send your donation by mail: CPHS, 1837 E. Pleasant Valley Blvd., Altoona, PA 166602 or make a donation online at via the easy and secure Paypal payment system. Help to keep our furbabies warm and well.
