The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Animal Shelter would like to thank everyone who attended our 8th annual Holiday Open House this year! This was our most successful event yet, raising over $4,000 dollars for the benefit of the shelter animals. Proceeds from event were donated to the emergency medical fund through Friends for Life Animal Rescue. The fund has spent over $8,000.00 in 2012 providing medical treatment for shelter animals that would otherwise have been euthanized. Donations can be made to this fund year-round at the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Animal Shelter, 960 Lycoming Ave., Mckinleyville, mailed to FFL-EMF, P.O. Box 962, Eureka CA, 95501, or via their website www.dogrescuers.org

We would like to thank and acknowledge the following businesses, citizens and employees of the shelter who donated items for our raffle and silent auction, and all of the staff and volunteers who continue to make this event possible year after year.
