(Christmas Dinner for the Animals will be held at Helping Hands Humane Society at 2625 NW Rochester Road in Topeka, this Saturday, December 11th, from 11:30am to 1:30pm.)
FROM HELPING HANDS -- Every year, HHHS holds a special Christmas Dinner for the Animals under our care. Dogs are fed grilled hamburger and cats get a snack of tuna. This year, Mike and Rena Carmona of Carmona Comfort Air are sponsoring the event and will be at HHHS on Saturday, December 11th from 11:30am to 1:30pm to grill the hamburgers and prepare the tuna.
Carmona Comfort Air and HHHS would like to extend an invitation to the public in helping the animals celebrate Christmas. Please consider bringing the animals a gift from the HHHS Wish List. The HHHS Wish List may be accessed at www.hhhstopeka.org or call 233.7325.
Most needed items are towels, stuffed toys or animal toys, copy paper, shoe boxes, money and blankets. This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to give to those who would appreciate it most. We hope you join HHHS and Carmona Comfort Air to celebrate Christmas for the homeless animals.
HHHS will also be having a Holiday Retail Sale on that day. Select from numerous retail options that make great stocking stuffers or out-of-the-ordinary gifts.
Animal shelters, such as HHHS, offer a variety of services to assist animals. Among many things, they provide a sanctuary for lost pets, protection from abuse, and health and behavior assessments. One of the most rewarding aspects of an animal shelter is finding animals new homes. Animal shelters also provide an educational outlet and guidance to assist the public with animal-related issues and concerns, from dealing with training issues to behavior issues.
HHHS has been a permanent part of the Topeka community since its founding May 4, 1938. The organization is incorporated as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) business for the purpose of sheltering companion animals in need of care, advocating for anti-cruelty protection of animals and promoting humane education and animal welfare issues.
HHHS fosters the adoption of companion animals into responsible homes and reunites lost animals with their owners; promotes sterilization of animals to help reduce overpopulation; provides a facility accessible to the general public; serves the community with educational programs addressing animal welfare issues; and maintains a fiscally responsible organization.
