Rivers & Bluffs Animal Shelter Holiday Fund Raisers Are you looking for a way to help Rivers & Bluffs Animal Shelter raise money this holiday season for an animal shelter? If so, shelter volunteers have come up with a number of ways to support our efforts. Pet Celebration Tree The holidays are a time to celebrate our pets who bring so much joy and companionship to our lives and to remember those pets who are no longer with us but still close to our hearts. This holiday season we invite you to celebrate the special relationship we share with our pets. Rivers & Bluffs Animal Shelter and Blackhawk Junction will co-sponsor a Pet Celebration Tree to remember those pets we have lost and the ones that are still with us to brighten our days. The Pet Celebration Tree will be located near the Sears Store in Blackhawk Junction. For a $5 donation, pet owners can provide a wallet sized picture of their pet which will be placed in a special photo ornament to decorate the lighted Christmas tree. In addition to the ornament, the pet and owner’s names will be placed on a poster next to the tree. Santa himself will light the tree on Sunday, November 27 at 1 p.m. Pictures can also be dropped off from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. to be placed on the tree. RABASvolunteers and their dogs will be available at the Pet Celebration Tree on December weekends (December 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18) prior to Christmas from 1-3 p.m. For a $7 donation, you may purchase an ornament in memory of or to honor a pet that belongs to someone else. They will receive a Christmas card acknowledging your gift. “This is a perfect gift for that animal lover in your life who is difficult to buy for”, stated Donna Heilmann, RABASboard member. For those who do not have a picture, an ornament listing the name of the pet to be remembered and the pet’s owner will be provided. Pet Celebration Tree order forms are available at Curves and Nelson True Value in Blackhawk Junction and also from our website at They can be mailed to RABASPO Box 421 Prairie du Chien, WI 53821 or dropped off at either store. For more information, please call Donna Heilmann at 608-3792112 Kwik Trip Gas Cards RABAS has recently started selling Kwik Trip Gift Cards. “This is a great fund raiser for the organization as we make 10 per cent off each card that we sell and everyone needs gas” said Jill Cipra, treasurer of RABAS. The cards are sold in increments of $25, $50, and $100 and can be purchased at Merle Norman Cosmetics, downtown Prairie du Chien and River City Roller Rink (Saturdays and Sundays) or from RABASvolunteers. The cards make excellent Christmas presents and stocking stuffers. The group is also hoping to develop regular customers who will get into the habit of purchasing the cards from the organization prior to buying gas. “Purchasing the cards has taken the “sting” out of buying gas, because every time I fill my tank I am donating almost $5 to RABAS,” added Bev Pozega, vice president of the organization. The gift cards are valid for gasoline and all products sold in Kwik Trip and Kwik Star Stores in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. For more information or to purchase gas cards, please call Bev Pozega at 326-2914 or Jill Cipra at 326-4870 or visit our website at www.riversandbluffsanimalshelterorg. Tractor Supply Gift Wrapping and Christmas Bake Sale – On Saturday, December 17, RABASwill sponsor a Christmas Bake Sale at Tractor Supply from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. The bake sale will feature animal shelter volunteers’ favorite Christmas recipes, including rosettes, as well as home-made dog treats. In addition to the bake sale, volunteers will be wrapping gifts for a donation. Kwik Trip Gift Cards, Rural Route 1 Popcorn and Dr. Donna Higgins’ 2012 Eagle Calendars will also be available for sale.
