Homeward Bound to light memory tree Dec. 13
MIDDLEBURY — Homeward Bound, Addison County’s Humane Society, is pleased to announce their annual Lights of Love program — this is not your average holiday memory tree! This tree honors the pets we have loved, and the ones that are still here to brighten our days.
Homeward Bound executive director Jessica Danyow is proud of this unique tradition. “We believe we are the only organization in Vermont to offer the opportunity to honor a lost or living pet during the holiday season with a memory tree program. Pets are incredibly important to their owners and most consider them to be family members. We’re pleased to offer our Lights of Love program as we know people appreciate the chance to celebrate the pets who so profoundly enhance their lives with joy and companionship each and every day of the year.”
Individuals may purchase a colored light to honor a living pet or a white light to remember a pet that has passed. A donation of $3 is requested for each light.
The shelter is hosting a tree lighting and open house on Tuesday, Dec. 13, from 6-8 p.m., however donations to the Lights of Love effort will be accepted all month via the shelter’s website (www.homewardboundanimals.org), by phone at 802-388-1100 ext. 224, or in person at 236 Boardman Street, Middlebury. The tree lighting is made possible by the following sponsors: Iron Thread, Open Air Pet Repair, Beaudoin’s Auto Radiator and Air Conditioning and Otterside Animal Hospital.
