Kirsty Waller Memorial Garden
We are committed to honoring her desire. To raise funds we have created the Kirsty Waller Memorial Garden fundraising campaign. Our goal is to raise $3000 to install a permanent garden at VRHS featuring masonry, flower beds, a water feature and some of Kirsty's favorite shrubs and plants.
This will be a place to gather to remember our beloved Kirsty and the pets who cross the rainbow bridge in search of her warm embrace. Please join us by donating to our effort. You can donate via our website at vrhs.org/donate or by mail at VRHS, 7450 US 19, Marble. NC 28905.
- Your $5 weekly donation helps VRHS to purchase badly needed supplies -- everything from pet food to veterinary medicine. Sign up for $5 Fridays here:https://www.paypal.com/donate/...and THANK YOU for your continued support. WOOF!
Microchip Your Pet Today!
You and your pet belong together!
When did you last update your pet’s microchip registration?
It is crucial that you update your contact information when you move or get a new phone number. A microchip can help find your lost pet only when this information is accurate.
If you don’t know the name of your pet’s microchip company, the microchip number can be input intothe microchip registry lookup at the AAHA’s Universal Website: https://aaha.org. The name, phone number and website of your pet’s microchip company will be provided, along with the last time the microchip was updated. Alternatively, your local veterinarian and the VRHS can scan your pet for the microchip number.
Any found pet without a tag can be scanned for a microchip. All local veterinarians and the Valley River Humane Society will scan a found pet to help locate its owner. Please help VRHS keep you and your pet together!

VRHS Thrift Store Needs
Volunteers needed! This is an easy and rewarding volunteer opportunity. Come by and talk to us.
Over 40% of all expenses for the Shelter are subsidized by the VRHS Thrift Shop! So, every time you donate to or buy something from the Thrift Shop it REALLY helps.
Anytime you clean out your closet, your basement, your attic, or any other area, please bring those things to us you no longer need or want. We can then turn around and resell those things and those proceeds go to helping the animals. Please visit the Thrift Store often. There are some GREAT bargains and it really helps!
