Sadly,Uncle Frank Zollner, passed away on January 19. He was a vital part of our organization. Whether working on the Executive Board or making Snowball run smoothly, his energy was inexhaustible. To Frank’s family, our deepest sympathy goes out to you as you struggle through the grief and sadness. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Saturday night costume dance -- Through the Ages
Come dressed as if you are in a different time. Everything from togas and steampunk through poodle skirts and disco, and of course who can forget the glorious hair styles of the 80’s (although lots of us wish we could :P). Be creative, be punny, be whatever!
We want your SOCKS!

Operation Happy Sock creates and delivers catnip toys to homeless cats in animal shelters. At Snowball we will make these simple toys, called "Happy Socks," by putting catnip in the toe of an old sock and tying a knot at the ankle.

We welcome donated socks that meet these guidelines:

  • Clean – please run them through the washer first.
  • Any type of socks (sweat socks and fuzzy socks are terrific!) will work -- although thin synthetics or nylons may not be durable enough.
  • Any size (baby and kids’ sizes too) are welcome.
  • Even socks with holes are fine – we are experts at making a toy from almost any sock!

It’s time to clean out that sock drawer and admit that all those lone socks will probably never meet their mates again. Give 'em a second life as a Happy Sock!

Thank you on behalf of homeless cats everywhere!

Please note: This event will take place at 6:00 PM on Friday evening. At registration, we will have a box for sock donations, or better yet, bring your socks to Room 209 and make the toys yourself!
