A Big THANK YOU to All In Love and Czar's 505 Nightclub. Czar's recently hosted 2 nights of awesome music donated by the members of All In Love to benefit Save A Stray, The Humane Society and Animal Aid. A GREAT time was had by all who attended and a good amount of money was raised to be split equally between the 3 groups. Save A Stray would like to thank everyone involved in making this event possible. We'd especially like to thank the band members. These wonderful people come back to St. Joe every 2 years to help us all out. I thoroughly enjoyed their music and suggest if you're a pet lover or not, next time they're in town go see them. They are worth far more than the cover charge!
A Big THANK YOU to Cassava and Lest We Forget for partnering with Save A Stray to present our first installment of Pets & Vets. The evening featured speakers from Lest We Forget and local veternarians for an informative and memorable evening. Cassava presented a wonderful meal which was well complimented by inspiring and educational words from our guest speakers, Dr. Ed Blessy, Dr. Holly Shaffer as well as the Lest We Forget speakers Dan Alsbro and Jim McCloughand. Pictured (l to r) Denny Kime, Vicktoria Dunlop, Bill Langghen, Cheryl Petke, Don Alsbro, Jim McCloughand and Lew Burchard. And a special Big THANK YOU to Lest We Forget for donating their share of the proceeds to Save A Stray!

A Big THANK YOU to the Howard Ice Arena and everyone who donated to and volunteered for our 3rd Annual Benefit Sale, "Summer On Ice". The sale was a huge success thanks to the efforts of many volunteers and donors. Customers received bargains on some wonderful items and Save A Stray raised money to help care for our many foster pets! We're already talking about next year's sale. Contact us if you'd like to donate or volunteer!
ABig THANK YOU to McDaniel's Harley Davidson for sponsoring our first Ride For Rescue Poker Run! The weather wasn't exactly cooperative but the local Niles businesses were! Many businesses contributed to the success of this event! A Big THANK YOU to all who participated!!
A Big THANK YOU to Cabo and Connie Hansen of Bloomie's for inviting Save A Stray to celebrate in Cabo's Birthday Party! It was a beautiful day on the bluff in downtown St. Joe and Cabo was a handsome host (although the picture to the right indicates he may be developing a drinking problem!). Many of Cabo's friends came out to celebrate with many donations being made to Save A Stray! Cabo is always looking out for the underdog and undercat!
A BIG THANK YOU to The Heart of Cook!! Save A Stray has the honor of being a recipient of a $500 Grant from The Heart Of Cook. This organizaion has awarded grants to local non-profits for several years now. Employees of The Cook Plant in Bridgman are able to volunteer AND earn funds donated by Cook for groups such as ours.
Many rescued animals have benefited from not only The Heart of Cook, but The Cook Women in Nuclear Group and Cook Nuclear employees as well! A BIG THANK YOU to all !!
