Alumni Day: June 6

Our annual Alumni Day "Pets and People Party" will be held on Sunday, June 6 from noon to 4 pm. This year's theme is "Kindness matters...," since this year will test the hope and resilience of many people and nonprofits as they struggle to survive and care for their families. Kindness always makes even hard times bearable. Presently, we are home to approximately 370 animals who have no place to go if we are not here for them.

Our AID logo of a cat and dog sleeping peacefully in each other's arms, surrounded by a heart that is the love we all have for them, embodies what we are all about, and the spirit of love and caring is embodied in our annual homecoming Alumni Day celebration.

This fun afternoon is made even more memorable by the publication of a Commemorative Journal, which becomes a treasured keepsake of the day.

Please take out a listing in the 2010 Commemorative Journal. This is an important fund raiser for us, and all proceeds from the Journal go to help homeless and abused pets. You can use your business card, or make up a message that our printer can typeset. Photos can also be included for an extra $10 per photo. Please place your name and address on the back of the photo, and include any special instructions on the form.
