As we head into the busy holiday season, don't forget about HSEC events!
Christmas Gift Wrapping
December 8th through 24th, noon-9pm (or noon-6 depending on mall hours), Greenville Mall, outside the entrance of the women's Belk Department Store.
Our traditional holiday fundraiser! Santa is sending us a crew of his most talented gift-wrapping elves (who strangely look a lot like our volunteers) and stationing them at the Greenville Mall. Pricing is dependent on package size.
Rather than releasing your inner Grinch by taking home a mountain of gifts, hauling out the wrapping paper, and trying to find that roll of tape, let us do the work for you! Not only will you be tremendously relieved that your wrapping is done, but knowing that your gift-wrapping donation will benefit our homeless animals is guaranteed to bring you extra Christmas cheer.
We still need volunteers - you can sign up to become one of Santa's helpers at the volunteer website.
Blog Committee Meeting
Thursday, December 13th, 7:00 pm at the Tipsy Teapot, 409 South Evans St. in Greenville.
Want to be part of the magic? Come out to our next blog meeting and see if this volunteer opportunity is right for you. We're always looking for writers, photographers, and tech support. An excellent way to volunteer for those with a busy schedule.
Share the Love - a Pitt Partnership event in association with Greenville Subaru!
Saturday December 15th 11-4 at Greenville Subaru, 3999 S. Memorial Drive in Winterville (beside Rucker John's).
Come meet the 12 strays of Christmas - 12 wonderful dogs featured for
adoption at the reduced fee of $50 (cash only). Microchipping services
are also available as well as information about low cost spay/neuter.
Also featuring the No Choke Challenge. We strongly recommend to not use painful collars as a training tool. From 11-1, bring in your dog and their choke, prong, or shock collar and receive a FREE no-pull harness (while supplies last).
Introducing the Canine Crawl website!
The 13th annual Canine Crawl isn't until March 17th, but we're already getting excited for it. This year we're happy to roll out a fancy new website just for the event - right HERE! Update your bookmarks!
This year we will have online registration for the walk and participants will be able to register in teams. The event will also include a 5k, so if you're looking for a good incentive for those New Year's Resolutions, you can get ready to lace up your running shoes.
Become a HSEC Holiday Angel
You can be an angel this holiday season by providing a foster Home For the Holidays for one of our HSEC residents. We also have volunteer opportunities available on Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day. You can give our staff a chance to spend the holiday with their families, and spread some holiday cheer among the animals at our facility.
And Even More Volunteer Opportunities...
We've had a great response from our new volunteer website. Let's keep that momentum going! In addition to special events, our adoptable animals also need volunteers to come in daily to assist with their care.
Keep checking in and signing up. If you've never used the website before (or you need a refresher), check out this post.
