Animal Updates!
Finding a foster home
Blackie and Blondie are two of our special needs pups.  They have been with us for some time.  Finding them the perfect home has been challenging.  The ten year old sisters are sweet, gentle, and just want to be loved.
One of our new volunteers could not imagine going home without them!  So, she has taken them under her care and loves every minute of it. Here they are in their new playpen enjoying the sunshine out on their patio and in their double-decker stroller visiting the ladies at KHS.  Everyone is so happy for them and their new foster mom.  They have given each other so much joy.  Thank you Betsy! 
A perfect match
There is always someone for every animal.  So was the case with Bear, a three year old Retriever mix who was unwanted.  This wonderful young man was looking for a lifelong companion - and so was Bear!  It was a perfect match.  We wish them both a lifetime of love and happiness.
Gifts from our friends!
Warm and comfy!
If you've been shopping at our thrift store (and we hope you have!) you know how chilly it can get in the winter.  With two furnaces not working for years and a third was condemned this year, we were facing a winter with one very old furnace to heat the entire store.  That is until J.A. Bertsch stepped in!   These wonderful folks not only donated four new furnaces but installed them as well - for free!  Our hearts (and our hands and toes!) are warm with joy.  Yours will be too when you shop this winter for all your holiday decor.
If you're looking to support a local business and want great service, please call Bertsch!  Their number is easy to remember;1-800-FURNACE!  Thanks to everyone at Bertsch for caring about our homeless animals.  You guys are truly a Christmas miracle.
Pet-a-Palooza present!
Our good friends at the Coeur d'Alene Country Store invited their customers to invest in our community's homeless animals.  During this year's Pet-a-Palooza celebration, they raised over $900 for Paws for a Cause.  KHS is so fortunate to partner with these wonderful people.  Thank you Kent and your crew for all you do for the animals!
Please stop by their store on Government Way, just south of Hanley, and find all your pet supply needs.  They even have free popcorn!
An artist among us!
Sometimes the humblest of people do amazing things.  This incredible handmade wood carving was made by one of our own dog walkers and all around repair guy, Dale.  It took him weeks to complete it.  He has been carving wood for some time but we never knew.  One day he said, "How would you like this for the lobby?"  Visit our lobby and see the answer!  Dale, you are truly one of a kind.  We are so blessed to have you as part of our family.  Thank you.
