“HAVE YOU SEEN PENNY AND HER RHINO?” The question spread
quickly around the campus in the days after Penny’s transfer from
an overcrowded partner shelter. Volunteers and staff smiled as they
chatted about the new arrival who wouldn’t drop her stuffed toy. Staff and volunteers were charmed, and signage went up on Penny’s chart and her kennel: “Please don’t take my rhino. It goes where I go.”

Over two million people joined in our delight when we shared the video of Penny and her rhino on Facebook. And when the rhino fell apart, toy donations POURED IN.

It’s things like this that make our donors so important – you have the power to make real impact on an animal’s well-being by donating to support our mission.
