The trees are lit and the shelter dogs are practicing their caroling (howling) for the annual Kitty Christmas & Merry Mutts Holiday Open House on Friday, December 6th! From 4pm – 8pm, help the shelter celebrate the holidays by giving back to the animals!

Guests will be ensconced with holiday cheer, adorable animals and a wonderful open house event!  The animals’caretakers once again look forward to celebrating the very great generosity of the Valley Animal Center’s many supporters.

Admission to the event is a gift for the animals. Every year, 500 to 800 attendees give a gift to homeless animals of a monetary donation, or a contribution to the shelter of necessary supplies. Needs include a variety of oft overlooked, everyday necessities for the no-kill shelter, such as bleach, laundry detergent, and paper towels.  Of course, the shelter animals also appreciate all donations of treats and toys by generous supporters during the event.  These items are necessary for the shelter to operate year-round, and donations from the public help to ensure that all of the animals will continue to be well taken care of.

We are excited to announce that Milla Vineyards, Twin Pomegranates Wine, and ApCal Wine will be pouring at the event! We will also have some fabulous food from Casa de Tamales and Morton’s Grill available for sale. Also be sure to enjoy our yummy candy bar and some sweet treats throughout the shelter as you tour! Lastly, be sure to check out our wonderful prizes and baskets of goodies which will be raffled off at the end of the event!
