We even deliver within 15 miles of the shelter! Order by December 6th and we'll deliver the following week. It's easy:

Whatever Happened to Baby Girl?

Meet Baby Girl. She was found on the streets of Ark City and brought in as a stray. This 2-year old Great Pyrenees mix was not only skinny, but also had a broken hind leg and a major infection. Despite her ordeal, Baby Girl was nothing but sweet and loving. Thanks to our supporters, we were able to take this precious girl to Ark Vet Associates to give her the care she needed. Her broken leg was amputated and a foster home was found where Baby Girl was given a chance to heal. Being a tripod didn't slow this sweetheart down, and she was recently adopted!

Each year we take in many animals who need special care, but we only have limited resources. Next year, we are facing a $7,500 budget cut by the County. We need members and sponsors now more than ever! Please consider becoming a member for $20 a year, so we can help more animals like Baby Girl. You can become a member through our website (click on "membership") or by sending a payment directly to the shelter. You will receive a membership magnet as a small thank you from us, but the animals, whose lives will be saved, will thank you forever!

 CCHS is 501c3 non-profit organization, meaning donations are tax-deductible.

Two Girls With a Plan

Alyssa and Sadie Cohrs are Individual Girl Members of the Girl Scouts--due to their busy schedules they are not able to be part of a troop, but can do the same activities that girls in troops do. 

One of these activities is community service. Alyssa and Sadie both want to be veterinarians and they love animals, so they decided to organize a dog wash to benefit dogs, their owners and the animals at the shelter. 

Alyssa and Sadie were not able to do the dog wash at home, so they approached Two Rivers Co-op in Ark City to ask if they could use the store's dog washing station. Not only did the owners say "yes", but also donated all supplies! 

On a Saturday morning, the girls and their family bathed, blow-dried and beautified numerous dogs in exchange for a donation. Their hard work paid off and they donated $182 to the shelter! Thank you,
Alyssa, Sadie, their family, and Two Rivers Co-op!

Ten Dogs Get the Ride of Their Life

October 21st, 4:30 a.m.: It was still dark when the shelter director, Teresa Harden, and several board members gathered at the shelter to walk some lucky dogs and get them ready to board PetSmart's Rescue Waggin'. Six adult dogs and four puppies boarded the van; some went to Chicago, others to Wisconsin with an overnight stay in Missouri. These dogs will have a great chance of finding new homes quickly!
