When you shop with the Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) this holiday season, you’ll find amazing gifts that also bring comfort and joy to homeless and abused animals. We’ve rounded up some PAWsome gift ideas for the animal lovers in your life. The best part? Proceeds benefit the animals at HSMO and Longmeadow Rescue Ranch!
GIFTS WITH A “TWIST”
At Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, HSMO’s haven for abused and neglected farm animals, there is a special horse named Twist of Fate (affectionately known as “Twister”) who has a unique artistic talent. In the winter of 2017, volunteers taught Twister to hold a paint brush, and then to paint. Twister’s works of art make a memorable gift and are a beautiful testament to the vibrant and resilient nature of the farm animals who find their way to Longmeadow, and they make a memorable and unique gift.
Fans of Twister will also love Chris Stuckenschneider’s book, “Twist of Fate: The Miracle Colt and His Friends,” which tells Twister’s incredible story and features beautiful paintings by Kevin Belford. Twister is also available as a Barn Buddy plush!
GIFTS TO CHERISH
St. Louis’ own Diane Katzman Design has created some gorgeous one-of-a-kind pieces in honor of the Humane Society of Missouri. Purchase one of these stunning ornaments, keychains or bracelets to show your love for animals and support HSMO at the same time.
The bangle bracelets are available in three different styles: choose from charm options with horse hoof prints, or a cat or dog paw print.
We are so inspired by Diane’s dedication to making the world a better place as a volunteer, donor and artist, and grateful that she has crafted such beautiful designs for HSMO.
