This month our Featured Charity, H.O.P.E Animal Shelter is being presented by Jennifer Pionk of A Crocheted Simplicity. This is a private, non-profit organization which is near and dear to her heart and although it may not be a local charity for all of us, we hope by sharing it with our friends and family H.O.P.E. Animal Shelter will receive the support it needs!
Social media is a powerful tool – let’s use it together to get these charitable organizations the support they need!
Please read on to learn more about the H.O.P.E. Animal Shelter and how we can help.
If you are unable to help personally, please share this with your friends online – you never know – you may reach someone who is able to make a difference locally! If you would like to contribute too, we encourage you to crochet the featured free pattern this month and donate it to an animal shelter local to you. ♥ Rhondda
Hi Everyone! I’m Jennifer from A Crocheted Simplicity and I’m excited to share a local charity that is near and dear to my heart.
H.O.P.E. Animal Shelter
(Help Orphaned Pets Everywhere)
This month’s featured organization, H.O.P.E. Animal Shelter, isn’t one that is a world wide charity, it’s a small local charity where I live, but I’m positive that there’s a small animal shelter nearer you where you can make a difference too! H.O.P.E. Animal Shelter was founded in 1992 to care for unwanted animals and to provide them with preventative medical treatment, food, and shelter until they find their furever home.
Located in Ironwood, Michigan, H.O.P.E. Animal Shelter accepts lost, stray and abandoned cats and dogs in Gogebic Co. MI & Iron Co. WI.
How We Can Help
