I got what I Always Wanted - An Animal Shelter of My Very Own

I got what I wanted - An Animal Shelter of My Very Own

I was wandering around Lowe's the other day while Craig was looking at nuts, bolts, screws, whatever it is you guys find so fascinating, and I realized the Christmas decorations were out (not in the usual spot so I almost missed them).

What to my wondering eyes did appear? This adorable lighted structure, and it said Animal Shelter. I have several lighted houses, train station, and the old Ives train set that belonged to Craig's Dad on a plant shelf in the living room. They stay there all year since they are so darn cute. So, now I have my very own animal shelter to add to them. Perfect for a person who loves animals and is President of the SPCA Suncoast in New Port Richey, FL.I'm thankful that I can help lots of animals find their forever homes.

I got what I Always Wanted - An Animal Shelter of My Very Own

This one will be joining the others soon as I can get Craig to drag out the BIG  ladder.

Hi Toni,

Great Animal Hospital! Our Lowe's doesn't have a display like that yet. Thanks for sharing and the colors are great. Hope your Halloween was nice.

That is so precious!  I had a housemate back when I lived in Vegas that had a collection of those Christmas Village houses that it got so big that I just let him keep it up all year long!  I wish we had an animal shelter back then.  Especially since we had 4 dogs that came from the shelter.

John - thanks and welcome to ActiveRain. If you need any help, just contact or email me.

Belinda - it is rather a chore to dust them though.

Kristin - Thanks, it was fun.

Sheila - It surely did :)

Jennifer - we do tend to get carried away when we collect something, don't we?

Hi Toni -

Now how cool is that ... finding and owning your personal animal shelter.  I knew you were a big animal activist but had no clue you were the president of the SPCA Suncoast!  Awesome!  Now I can say I truly know a big dog... :)  I like your cool niche set up. 

Best regards from the Q

I am going to have to go to Lowe's and find one for my friend that has a shelter at her farm for 150 cats. That display up on the plant shelf is pretty darn cute.

That is just too cute!  I  have a Christmas village too, and each building has a connection to someone in the family.

Hi Toni, The only thing  have to say about your new animal house is that it is a shame that someone didn't gift it to you. Then it would have been even more special. :-) A great find and its perfect for your interest and love of animals.

How beautiful and what a find for your personal collection!  I love how you tied it into your own life, sharing a bit more of yourself for the residents, visitors, and future clients of New Port Richey, FL.  Tell your husband to be careful on that LADDER!!

Mary - I don't like to dust much either that's why I like tha plant shelf. It gives me the perfect excuse cause it's 12' high :)

Will - just what you see on the shelf and the new one.

Rich - It's kind of early, isn't it?

John - could you make it a big cat instead :)

JoAnn - go quickly because I went back a few days later to get one for our shelter and they were all gone.

Alexandra - how sweet; thank you.

Kay - they do disappear fast; see my comment to JoAnn.

Sheila - I feel like we all just posted about Christmas last week ;)

William - that would have been nice but by the time I told anyone I wanted it-it would have been gone. I'm happy. Thanks for saying that.

Tom - I'm sure it will too. Thank you.

Cara - I sure will tell him. I'm always nagging anyway :0)
