All proceeds benefit the MCHS. The MCHS is a no kill facility where homeless
animals stay until they are adopted. The MCHS houses @ 60 dogs & @ 100 cats.
The MCHS is a non-profit organization and receives no tax money, thus volunteers and donations are needed for its survival.

SIGNS:

What better way to honor your pet than to have a sign posted about him/her along the
trail (adoption notice, memorial, or just because)? There is a $5.00 fee per sign, if
interested contact Amy @ 765-610-7706 by May 1st.
