Crissy's Critter Corner

 **Fun for kids**

Crissy is currently 12 years old and is a strong animal advocate. 

Crissy had raised in excess of $2,000.00 for our shelter, within the past 5 years, by hosting fundraising events throughout our community.  

Crissy and her mom share their home with a large number of fur babies-- including turtles, geckos, bunnies, dogs, and cats. She also 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 recommendations in her "Reading With Reagan" selection, tasty treat creations in "Yummies 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 paintings. Suggested donation is $20 each and ALL proceeds are donated to help the animals in our care!


Reagan was Crissy's beloved best friend for over 8 years. Reagan passed away in June, 2023, but her paw prints will forever be imprinted on Crissy's heart. As Crissy was learning to read and progressing through school, Reagan always loved to listen to her read stories, which in turn helped Crissy build confidence with reading aloud.
