See's Candy Fundraiser
If you have “Candy” on your shopping list…shop for the cause!
A.D.O.P.T. is selling delicious See’s Chocolates...
Your purchase of just one pound of chocolate will cover the cost of one week of antibiotic treatment for a sick cat or dog, or provide a potentially life-saving heartworm test for an incoming dog, or the parvo testing of a young puppy who could die a terrible death if this fatal virus is not promptly detected and aggressively treated.
If you plan to purchase treats for friends and family members this holiday season, please shop for the animals!!
Orders along with payment: due by Tuesday, December 10th
Candy will be available for Pick Up at the shelter:

Festival of Lights
A.D.O.P.T. is continuing its tradition of the “FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS,” providing the opportunity for pet lovers and A.D.O.P.T. supporters to honor or memorialize loved ones and special pets through a tribute light on our FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS CELEBRATION TREE.
The FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS CELEBRATION TREE will be illuminated on December 14th with ornaments personalized with the name of the person or pet being celebrated or memorialized.
Rather than purchase a gift for everyone on your holiday shopping list, perhaps a donation to A.D.O.P.T. on their behalf is a consideration. An acknowledgment of your donation in their name will be sent to them. (See order form below)
Even when the tree lighting is over, you can continue to purchase a light or ribbon through December 24th.
Questions? Call Sandy at 847-458-6366 (Email: email@example.com)
Download the form using the button below. For each individual or pet, select a light or ribbon from the list, and then list the name and relationship of the individual or pet to be acknowledged in the spaces provided. You may also have an acknowledgment of the tribute sent to another person. For instance, if you would like to acknowledge a loved one of a friend or family member, they can receive a copy of the acknowledgment as well. Simply provide their name and address in the optional Acknowledgement section of the form.
Lights/ribbons may be ordered through December 24th.
||Requests for acknowledgment to another person must be received by Dec 14th to ensure delivery by December 25th.
Tribute lights may be reserved for a donation of $10 per light/ribbon.
- White lights honor the memory of loved ones
- Colored lights honor those living
- Red ribbons honor those serving in the military
