Canned please, we’re well stocked on dry. We need bird seed, oranges, and fresh produce too.
Here’s our Christmas Day special for you!!! NO you can't sit on St. Vince's lap and tell him your wishes for Christmas, but he can sit on your lap and you can get your photo taken for a $50 donation and you'll get one 8x10 glossy sent to you!!!!
What did Santa decide ???
And so we celebrate Christmas at Rikki’s Refuge !!
It’s Timmy’s first Christmas
he’s awed by all the excitement and gifts Santa brought. Even after listening to all the tales of Christmas past that Vincent told him about, he’s just amazed at the kindness and generosity of his friends and supporters.
Timmy takes time to read all the cards from all his friends and to stop and wish each and every one a very Merry Christmas! So many many friends!
Timmy wanted to take his time, opening each gift and savoring it ....
Vincent hunkers down and shows Timmy how to get on with it !!
Wow, a stocking of my own !!!!
Come on kid, no need to take all day, let me show you how it’s done .....
