Now you can take a one-of-a-kind vacation, while supporting our shelter pets at the same time!

Friends of the Animal Shelter is launching a tour program to benefit the Wags to Wishes campaign for a New Animal Shelter.  The tour program represents a collaboration among Friends of the Shelter, Travel Tails Tours, and international tour provider Collette. Sharon Bonnett founded Travel Tails Tours in 2011 to benefit the Maryville Animal Shelter.  Learning of the need for financial support of the new shelter in St. Joseph, Bonnett is additionally coordinating tours for the St. Joseph area with 100% of the tour commission from these two tours going directly to the fundraising efforts of the Friends of the Animal Shelter of St. Joseph.

Transportation is provided from St. Joseph to the Kansas City airport. Flights can be booked, however, from any major U.S. airport.

The initial tour will be a springtime tour to London and Paris from April 1-8, 2020. The April tour includes highlights of Big Ben and other London treasures such as Harrods, Westminster Abbey, Kensington, Trafalgar Square; transportation to Paris on the Eurostar Train; Paradis Latin Cabaret, Arc de Triomphe, dinner at the Eiffel Tower and a cruise of the Seine River. Though the group tour is set for an April 1 departure, the tour is offered by Collette multiple times throughout the year and can be booked on any of those dates.
