Wolfenoot Adoption Party

November 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Celebrate the Spirit of the Wolf with us on November 23rd!

Wolfenoot is a brand new holiday being celebrated across the world. It was recently invented by a seven-year-old boy in New Zealand, who wanted to create a holiday that celebrated dogs (and all animals) and those who love them. The original idea of the holiday is this; “Wolfenoot is when the Spirit of the Wolf brings and hides small gifts around the house for everyone. People who have, have had, or are kind to dogs get better gifts than anyone else…and you eat cake decorated like a full moon”. Sounds like a pretty good holiday to us!

So, on November 23rd, we will be celebrating Wolfenoot with:

  • ‘Name Your Price’ adoption fees for ALL animals
  • Donation drive – bring gifts for our animals (view wishlist here)
  • Full moon cookies/cupcakes
  • Family friendly crafts and scavenger hunt in our Education Room. If you and your family would like to make gifts for the animals at the shelter in Wolfenoot, please check out our list of crafts and check out what supplies you’ll need to bring:
    • Tie blankets: two pieces of fleece (approx 1 yard each).
    • Bunny Snack Bombs: empty toilet paper tubes, timothy hay
    • Doggy Busy Boxes: small cardboard boxes (cereal/snack boxes are great), dog treats
    • Kitty Pipe Cleaner Toys: pipe cleaners (the shiny ones are best!), large craft pom-poms

We hope you will join us and celebrate Wolfenoot and our love for all animals!
