Please stop by the Humane Society of Garland County Thrift Store at 2026 Central Avenue to purchase your 2016 HSGC calendar for $10. They make great stocking stuffers, and they are filled with local pets, many of whom were adopted through our organization. We are 100% donation funded, and we really need to sell as many of these calendars as possible. All proceeds go toward needy animals in our local community. We have a bunch left, and we would love to sell out. Our thrift store hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10-4, so swing by and pick yours up!

It’s a Wonderful Time of Year for Pet Photos!
