President’s Letter – Fetch – December 2018

 

 

It’s the most wonderful time. . .

‘Tis the season to be jolly. . .

You better not pout, you better not cry. . .

Rancho Coastal Humane Society takes care of others in need.  The holidays can be a difficult time for some.  Our Animal Safehouse Program brings comfort and safety to pets of owners in crisis.  Our Community Pet Food Banks feed the pets of local residents who would otherwise be forced to choose who eats.  Our Pet-Assisted Therapy Program brings tail-wagging entertainment to those who don’t get out.  Our Education Program continues to teach the importance of human-animal bonding to our children.   Our active military and veterans get food, medicine and temporary shelter for their pets.  RCHS is the place to turn to when unexpected things happen.

RCHS brings joy and cheer to others.  Our San Diego Wildlife Center spends long days and nights restoring the health of injured wildlife so we can soar with the songbirds when they are released in flight.  Our Thrift Shop helps you find that perfect gift for your best friend – feline, canine or human – and just the right touches to make your home sparkle with holiday bliss.  Our Shelter provides the perfect place to meet your soulmate – a furry companion to fill your heart and your home. Nothing feels better than coming home to a house where you are greeted with a pet that thinks you have been away forEVER when it was just an hour!

So, as we hum along to the carols (or, if your husband is not a musician, sing out loud, but off-key), let’s make a list – and check it twice – of everything for which we are grateful, all the people to whom we have offered a helping paw, all the wildlife we have restored to their environment, all the pets that have shown us true love, and all companion animals waiting for their second chance at FURever homes!

Thank you for your loyalty, confidence and support.  Wishing you all the best this Holiday Season!
