2020 marks our 18th annual BHRR Secret Santa to the BHRR Animals! So many other groups out there are now implementing in their own organizations; a similar SS event enabling many deserving animals to be given a very special and spoiling XMAS! We are thrilled to see this unique idea of BHRR’s expanding to encompass others in need.
As many know, each year; we do our best to ensure that every animal in our BHRR program receives a Secret Santa gift and if anyone wishes to be a 2017 Secret Santa to the animals in our program; it would be deeply appreciated!!!
We have BHRR’s Percival, Sleet, Mollie, Olive, Fred, Coupe,Devaney, Nimbus, Walter, Symba, Devon, Royal Blu, Volt, Rain, Aramis, Porthos, Arthos, Maple, Gretta, Granite, Lily, Giselle, Maverick, Gravel, Burst, Bell& Caramel would really appreciate any ‘Secret’ Santa friends.
20 more dogs are in need a SS of their very own!
Please EMAIL if interested in helping to give a dog a very special XMAS! Many of these dogs have never had a day of love until BHRR.
We try to make their XMAS just as special and spoil them as we can and any assistance from any extra Secret Santa’s out there; would be so wonderful. You can contact Gwen for details if you would like to participate and to set up a mutually convenient date for drop-off.
Many others do take the opportunity to try and attend our last BHRR ‘EXPERIENCE’ Mini Open House of the year(usually in November yet next one is not until 2020) or our Annual December ‘CHAIN OF SUCCESS Potluck in December; to visit with us, well, ok, more like the animals at BHRR 😉 and to drop off their gifts at that time.

For those that are interested and have not participated in the past in the BHRR SS, people tend to handle it one of four ways:
1) they either pick one or two animals in our program(s) and do a special SS package(s) or stocking(s) for them of items OR
2) some people put together a small box or parcel or rubbermaid full of all sorts of items of toys, treats, dog beds etc. for all the animals to share OR
3) they send Gift Cards OR
4) they paypal(please send as a ‘friend & family’ option or we are dinged paypal fees) or email transfer funds to firstname.lastname@example.org(please let us know the pw) for BHRR to purchase items.
Thanks SO in advance for the consideration to help us ensure that all the animals receive a most wonderful XMAS to remember! For many of these dogs, this shall be their very first loving caring XMAS.
