´╗┐Dear Friend´╗┐,
It's hard to believe that 2016 is almost over. It's been a year of celebration for the HSWC as we commemorated our 95th anniversary. 
The following video, created by Semper Anticus Photography, was shown at our Roaring Twenties gala and we'd like to share it once more. It features animals that have been adopted out of our shelter into wonderful, loving homes. Special moments like these have been happening for 95 years thanks to people like you. 
If you'd like to make your end of year, tax-deductible donation to help the 6,000 animals that come through our doors each year, you can do so here.
Take the Plunge for the Animals! 
It's time to register for our 14th Annual Polar Bear Plunge, sponsored by VerStandig Broadcasting! Bundle up while you can, because on January 14th we're plunging into the cold water of Greenbrier Lake!
Register as an individual or a team and get sponsors to support you as you raise money for the animals. There are incentives, so the more you raise, the more prizes you receive!
The first 100 people to register online will get a free cinch-up backpack, and you must register by January 6th to be guaranteed a Polar Bear Plunge long sleeve T-shirt.
Don't miss this exciting, memorable opportunity to help all of the animals at our shelter. You'll even be joined by celebrity plungers who will be announced soon! So have fun, dress up in crazy costumes, freeze your fur off, and take the plunge!!
And if running into a freezing cold lake sends you running in the opposite direction (but you'd still like to make a positive impact on the animals from the warmth of your home), you can always donate here.
