Mark Luinenburg was out last month for his first visit of the year - the winter was so snowy, icy and cold, we didn't have the heart to ask him to come out. We had a lot of catching up to do, and he got many great photos of new faces and old favorites.

HOME FOR LIFE'S® Pool Party event is back on for 2019, and will be a one day event only, BUT it will be a nearly all day extravaganza and combine the best of both our events from last year! Below are the latest details.
It's not too soon to plan to join us this fall for the most anticipated gala event of the season! Home for Life's® Fall Gala, the Fancy Feast will welcome beautiful Ashley Judd as our special guest at this year's event. Like our 2018 gala guest, Dr, Jane Goodall, Ashley loves dogs and works hard for conservation efforts, particularly on behalf of bonobos apes in their native Congo. Ashley also loves and cherishes all animals, and has relied on her beloved dogs for emotional support animals during turbulent times of her life.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, our Sunset Swim Party on a Saturday afternoon was such a success that the Town and Country Club members decided that time slot would work better for THEIR event. HOME FOR LIFE'S® Pool Party event is still on, and will be a one day event only, BUT it will be a nearly all day extravaganza and combine the best of both our events from last year!
November 9, 2019: Home for Life's® Fall Gala, The Fancy Feast, with special guest Ashley Judd! The Metropolitan, Minneapolis, MN
In 2019, Saturday November 9, Home for Life® will welcome the A-List actress, conservationist and U.N. representative and humanitarian Ashley Judd as our special guest. Ashley was very interested in being part of the Home for Life® gala as she is such an admirer of Dr. Jane Goodall, our 2018 gala guest and like her, loves dogs and works hard for conservation efforts, particularly on behalf of bonobos apes in their native Congo. Ashley also loves and cherishes all animals, and has relied on her beloved dogs for emotional support animals during turbulent times of her life.
Thank you to those of you who gave so generously to help Home for Life meet our $25,000 match challenge.
Since late November, animal welfare organizations throughout Greater Minnesota have come together to find a way to help 30 cats of the Animal Humane Society's Partner Placement list. Cats who land at one of the four humane society locations are evaluated for placement; some who are experiencing shelter stress or who are very shy are not cats the humane society believes they can support on the adoption floors of their shelters, so they offer these cats to partner rescues to try to find the cats help and therefore avoid euthanizing them.
