Each year, the 7th graders of Nichols School undertake a special project aimed at fostering connections with the Western New York community and alumni.  This year, the students opted to design a puzzle featuring dogs from their own imagination to help promote White Whiskers Senior Dog Sanctuary.  The group partnered with Buffalo Games to produce a 300-piece puzzle; the puzzle sells for just $15 and all proceeds will benefit White Whiskers. 

There are a limited number of puzzles available, so purchase yours before time runs out!   Click here to view and order.

White Whiskers Senior Dog Sanctuary

Akron, NY  14001

It’s been a long road, but we are finally ready to show off the Sanctuary!  Come see what we’ve built the weekend of August 10 – 11!  We will still be constructing, but the key areas will all be ready for us to start doing what we have been intending to do, all along.  And that is rescuing homeless and unwanted senior pups and showering them with love and comfort.

 It’s important to note that senior dogs will NOT be in residence during this event—that will come later.

 More info to follow but meanwhile, mark your calendar!
