Thank you for contributing to the NCBCRA Holiday Spirit Fund Raiser

Give us a little time to hang your ornaments, wrap and place your gifts under the tree and post your Holiday Spirit messages below.

In the meantime, while the snow gently falls, sit back with a cup of cocoa, home fires burning, dogs at your feet (or in your lap) and read some of the holiday messages shared with us thus far.

A special thank you to everyone at NCBCRA. Your tireless work touches so many lives, both four- legged and two.
