Thank you Collinsville, Claremore, Owasso, Oologah and Tulsa!!

The receipts totaled $2, 507.19 and our 20% of that is $501.44. Plus several people donated in our spiral donation coin catcher, bought t-shirts, mugs, and key chains.

This puts us just that much closer to completion of the are all going to be so proud of the community of Collinsville when you walk into our state of the art shelter.

If you would go to this site and put in a comment for the shelter it may help us earn the $9,000 grant we are requesting from Hamburger Helper.

Plans for PetPalooza are fantastic...we will need volunteers helping on the 7th and need lots of pets and their families attending...I will get info out soon as we have it...let me know if you want to help. Susan 630-8832
