 Estate Planning Seminar 11x17 poster

Local nonprofit and no-kill animal shelter The Haven will host an estate planning seminar on Friday, November 7 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at The Brennity, 50 Spring Run Dr., Fairhope. This seminar, entitled “Purr-fect Planning: How to save money in the Ruff” will cover important facts such as year-end tax planning, how you can protect your pets in case of illness or death, and tips on living well and protecting your finances against sudden, catastrophic illness. “Many people don’t realize that some simple planning can save you a bundle and help those that matter,” states elder law attorney Kyla Kelim. “Your tax deductible gift to organizations like The Haven is heaven sent and means life or death to so many, and gives the donor the pleasure of seeing the direct benefit of their blessing.” Mrs. Kelim, a national speaker and local attorney, practices elder law in Alabama and Florida and will provide tips for keeping money firmly in your pocket to protecting your beloved pets.

Students at Gulf Coast Elementary School are using technology to help a local 501 c(3) animal shelter further its mission of helping the abused, abandoned and neglected animals of Baldwin County. Thanks to 2nd grade teacher, Julie Tassin, the children have been creating shortcuts on their iPads so that they can visit The Haven web page each day. “The children notice when there are new pets up for adoption,” said Tassin, “and know a lot of the pets’ names.” For the past five years, Ms. Tassin’s students have been collaborating with the non-profit creating decorated manila envelopes for the paperwork that each Haven adopter receives.

2014 Yard Sale FB

UPDATE: Our recent annual Fall Yard Sale was a success thanks to the donors, volunteers, shoppers and the shop's part-time manager, Heather Delker. We had generous donors gift several nice items including furniture. The folks at the Master Gardening Club also contributed some beautiful plants. Volunteers transported items, cleaned and priced items, and gave a warm friendly smile to the customers. All of the efforts put forth helped raise over $2,670 which will offset the shelters $4,000 - $6,000 average monthly medical expenses for homeless pets at the shelter. 
 
On behalf of all of the homeless animals, thank you for making a difference.
 
Remember, the shop is open Tuesday - Friday from 10am - 4pm.
