Doggies & Donuts!

Come out and see our furry friends at this semester’s first Puppy Therapy day: Friday, February 5, 11-1 at the Honor House! There will be dogs, and donuts—so what’s not to like? Feel free to bring a dollar or two to help Southern Pines Animal Shelter, along with any empty boxes, water bottles, soda bottles, toilet paper/paper towel tubes, etc—all helpful for doggie development.
