Northern Lights of Love

Please join us in lighting our holiday tree in honor of the pets in our lives today, and in tribute to those who live in our memories. The donation is $10 for each pet, which will be used to provide comforts to AACCC shelter pets. The tree will be at The Mall at Sears throughout the holiday season.

To join this tribute, go to the Donate page and select the Northern Lights of Love campaign to make your contribution and provide the names of the pets you wish to honor. Deadline is December 10.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's auction! Together we raised $14,500 for our community spay/neuter assistance program. This will provide necessary funds for spay/neuter services for pets whose owners cannot fully afford this important health care service.
