Barks-Giving Dinner: Provide shelter to a pet this holiday!


We're looking for temporary, loving families to take a shelter dog or cat over the Thanksgiving holiday. The goal is to have 100% of our animals in a loving home and out of the shelter!

The first 100 families, will also receive a $5 coupon to The Fresh Market to spend on their Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!


  • Due to the amount of support we're receiving from the community, we ask that you simply show up on the pick up day of your choice ready to browse available animals and to take one home that day!
  • You can get a head start by filling out page 1 and 2 of the holiday form below. Make sure to include the animals' names you are interested in. You can email this form to or bring it with you when you arrive!
  • Pick-up will be Tuesday, November 26th or Wednesday, November 27th (by noon)
  • Return the animal Saturday, November 30th or Monday, December 2nd
  • All supplies including food, toys, litter, kennels, etc. can be provided! If you do have a kennel, please bring it with you as our supplies are limited.
