The Rogue Valley Humane Society is hosting a fundraising event called Pennies for Pets!
We are partnering with Club Northwest’s Kid Zone and the Spa at Club Northwest!
We are asking all students to join us in our mission to save abandoned, neglected and abused animals in our community. It’s as easy as collecting pennies from around the home, asking friends and family to do the same or create your own fundraiser, you decide! Each student will pool together their collection and present it to The Rogue Valley Humane Society. The winning classroom that raises the most pennies, will enjoy a fun filled party at the Kid Zone for the entire class, plus your teacher will be the winner of a relaxing 90-minute massage! You have until the end of January, so let’s start collecting!!
The money your class raises will benefit our four legged friends at RVHS. Together we can help our community four paws at a time!
You can make a difference!
Winners will be announced February 1st 2017
Saturday October 1st at 1:00 pm at Rogue Valley Humane Society.
429 NW Scenic Drive Grants Pass, Oregon

When times are hard and you need a helping hand the last thing you need to hear is “sorry we’re out”. Our food bank was depleted and we were facing having to turn away the families that needed our help! Our food bank supplies hundreds of families with food for their beloved pets, and when we run out they have no food for their pets.
This week Mini Pet Mart came through for us and the families we assist! The families and Rogue Valley Humane Society are extremely grateful for the support and generosity of Mini Pet Mart, many belly’s will be full because of their paw-some donation!
A big Paws UP Mini Pet Mart for having a big heart and caring about the animals!
