Current Nail Clipping Charity

DogOrphans

Dog Orphans Humane Society, founded 43 years ago in Douglas, rescues abandoned, unwanted and abused dogs. They believe in doing everything possible to ensure they are servicing the dogs and the community. All dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested, microchipped, socialized and given loving attention. Dog Orphans educates the local community about responsible dog ownership and supports owners during times of financial hardship by bringing donations of dog food to local food pantries and hosting monthly vaccine clinics.

The funds raised will enable them to build an outdoor quarantine unit, which will consist of six cages with a permanent roof and solid PVC fencing around the cages. Conforming to the quarantine requirements, it would be an approved unit so dogs coming from other states would be able to stay outside during the day, weather permitting. This will provide comfort and safety during their stay while waiting for forever homes. Their goal is to continue rescuing dogs and saving them from unnecessary harm and neglect. They appreciate your donation to this life-supporting opportunity for their canines.

Please take advantage of this service and help a local charity at the same time! We also encourage you to learn more about the recipient on their in-store Information Days listed below.
