Pet lover? We are too! We have partnered with our local humane society and through this partnership, we have agreed to make a monthly donation of a percentage of the retail price for any dog or cat themed weathervane purchased from the weathervane.com Web site. All donations being made will be paid monthly to the Humane Society of St. Joseph County. We believe in the ‘pet rescue’ concept and have only rescued pets in our own home.  We are proud to have built a relationship with our local humane society and hope that you will consider purchasing one of our special dog or cat theme vanes so a portion of your sale will go to this worthy and heart warming cause.
