Crissy's Critter Corner

 **Fun for kids**

Crissy is currently 9 years old and a third grader at one of our local elementary schools.

She and her family are strong animal advocates.  Crissy had raised in excess of $1,000.00 for our shelter, within the past 3 years, by hosting fundraising events throughout our community.  

Crissy, and her parents, share their home with a large number of fur babies!!  She has 3 dogs (Reagan, Yoda, and Jabba) and 1 cat (Spooks).  Crissy's love of animals is not limited to cats and dogs.  She also has turtles, geckos, and has previously owned a rat named Master Splinter

With Crissy's unending love and devotion for animals, we couldn't think of a better Ambassador for our kid's page. 

Be sure to check out Crissy's book-of-the-month  recommendation in her "Reading With Reagan" selection, her recipe-of-the-month in her "Yummys with Yoda" section, some silly laughs in her "Jokes with Jabba" section, and puzzle fun in her "Search-a-word with Spooks" section. 

Also visit the "Crissy's Creations" fundraiser section of this page to view her paintings.  Crissy sells her paintings for $20 each as her fundraiser for the shelter and ALL proceeds are donated to help the animals in our care.   

READING WITH REAGAN

Animals LOVE to hear the sound of their human's voice.  It gives them a feeling of safety and comfort.  Reading is a GREAT way to spend some quality time with your furry friend.  

This month's reading recommendation is:

"Dragon's Love Tacos" by Adam Rubin

"Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa . . . oh, boy. You're in red-hot trouble."
