Holiday Ornaments with a Mission
Make happy tails come true this December
Trim your tree with hope this year.

This time of year, I’m always looking for ways to balance the excesses of the holiday with the true spirit of giving—without being a total buzzkill. It’s not always easy. But I can depend on Shelby Humane Society ornaments.

For a $50 sponsorship fee, I receive a framed portrait of an adorable shelter pup in Central Alabama, where pet overpopulation makes finding dogs homes extremely difficult. Meanwhile, that dog gets much-needed transportation to a partner shelter in New England, where animal laws and spay and neuter initiatives have limited the number of pets available for adoption, making it possible for most Shelby animals to be adopted within a week.

This is the fifth year of Shelby’s Shelter Partners transport program, which means they have plenty of wonderful dog-finds-loving-home stories to read, which is another way to get into the holiday spirit.
