We know it’s important to give thanks for all we have … and contribute locally, nationally, and internationally.
All our children have had four legs and tails so contribute to the Berkeley Humane Society … and even donated a car to them. We want to give other fur children forever homes … the same way we gave homes to our two girls, Poudini and Baby T.
Thank you, again, for your vehicle donation to Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society… the gross sales proceeds for your vehicle were $3,750.

And finally, Nick Cooper founded Home For A Home, which builds safe and secure homes in Guatemala for only $2,200. We’ve just funded our first home!
