2nd Annual Holiday Helper Ornament Campaign 2014

Our 2014 – 2nd Annual Holiday Helpers
Ornament Campaign
IMG_3657
Make your 2014 Holiday Donation for the animals…

We’ve got the perfect gift for the hard to satisfy family, friend, co-worker, or even YOURSELF! Donate the ornament value of your choice and 100% of your donation will go to help our homeless animals have a better stay while in our care, grow the many programs we offer for people and pets, heal the victims of cruelty and neglect and provide top quality medical care for all the animals that come through our doors looking for a better life.

Skip the lines and crowded stores and give an easy holiday gift that shows you care — for your beloved friends, family, pets, and for animals in need around the world — with a gift donation to The Animal Shelter Inc. of Sterling! All ornaments will be personalized with your name – your pet/s name – OR another person or pet you wish to honor or memorialize.  For as little as $10, we’ll decorate and hang an ornament with your special pet’s/person’s name for all our shelter visitors to admire. Our holiday ornaments are also a wonderful way to celebrate the memory of a beloved pet/person whose has passed on. These adorable ornaments will be displayed for all our shelter visitors to see – outside on our main kennel over the next months! We’ll even post photos on our Facebook site and shelter website for you to see your donation in action!

In memory of Sammy Pettingell
I was so sorry to hear that
Sammy passed away in
November. This donation
has been made to the
Sterling Shelter in memory
of Sammy. The void left
by the loss of a cherished
pet is enormous and
certainly difficult to fill, but
I hope you will find some
comfort in knowing that
this meaningful remembrance
of Sammy will benefit many
kittens and cats at the shelter.
In sympathy and friendship,
Marion

On November 24,2001 I arrived
on your doorstep. You welcomed
me in and gave me food to eat,
a warm couch to sleep on, and
most importantly, a family to
love me. I had some of my
best times with you. Whether
we were enjoying the outdoors
by the water or just kicking
back watching football or
Family guy re-runs, I was
always my happiest just being
with you. Love, Mick

Your generous holiday donation will help us to continue helping thousands of animals that come through our shelter each year! We are proud to have an adoption rate of over 99% annually – and all animals are spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated PRIOR to adoption!

All of our adopted animals were rescued on one of transport programs – or come to us from local Animal Control officers, other shelters/rescues that are full and the pet/s face euthanasia, or families that can no longer keep them – and many of you have adopted one of our sweet, innocent souls through these life saving programs…Can you imagine that in 2014 most of them were ALL facing a horrific ending in a gas chamber??? Or the many litters of tiny, abandoned kittens, afflicted with serious upper respiratory infections after being hoarded in a filthy house that would have been euthanized in many other shelters were lovingly cared for and rehabilitated by our staff and volunteers….

We certainly couldn’t do all we do without the support of people like YOU :) 

(Please note, if you don’t want to create an ornament, you can still become a Holiday Helper for our shelter.)

So please donate today. It’s a life saving gift – 100% tax deductible – and we’ll be sure to mail a receipt along with your ornament just after the holiday/s! It’s a wonderful way to help US help THEM  – and there ARE ALWAYS so many others desperately in need all of our help! You can also Make a donation for a friend, family member (2 legs or 4), or a co-worker and we’ll also mail them an acknowledgement!

 Since you ARE they KEY to our success… All Donations over $100 will receive a special token of thanks…Get your Sterling Shelter Supporter Swag AND help the critters!

We’d love for you to choose one of our Sterling Shelter Swag below:

  1. Key-ring with split ring, chrome finish and a flip top photo frame with our Proud Supporter Logo 447
  2. 5 x 5 inch Shelter Supporter Window Cling shelter supporter window decal clings 5x5
  3. Shelter Supporter t-shirtsupporter shirt back
