Cooler weather brings to mind many fall and winter activities. For dog owners this includes some holiday celebrations that include your four-legged family member. In addition these activities benefit the Kanawha/Charleston Humane Association to support the spay/neuter program, rescue efforts, and adoption of homeless dogs and cats. http://www.wvanimalshelter.com/
