With so many charities competing for donations, homeless pets can be forgotten.  Please remember them as you enjoy the festivities and remind your friends too!  There’s a list below of frequently requested items and of course, cash is always helpful.  It’s also more difficult for shelters to find volunteers and foster families over the holidays, so please consider donating your time or home.

  1. I have a big box of goodies to drop off at our shelter this weekend. Don’t forget to bring a little something for the staff who are working over the holidays.
