Poker Run for Pets - See FIAS this weekend

Meet your new Beau

Lovable, sweet, big guy-yep-that's me. My name is Beau and I was found alone, starving, sick and sad. The Ivins Animal Shelter has taken such great care of me. Now I am ready for a forever home. Come meet me at the Ivins No Kill Animal Shelter and you too will see why the staff here adores me.
