Giving to pet cause
THERE will be some pleased pooches and cool cats after a recent donation to the Animal Protection Society of WA.
The Southern River animal shelter received one of its largest ever donations of assorted items thanks to a thoughtful community member.
Annette Gallagher had a friend who worked at the shelter and decided to help her out with the aid of her colleagues.
Ms Gallagher and her Coles Gosnells co-workers collected bedding, sheets, towels, blankets, pet food and kitty litter for the shelter.
She said it was a great feeling to help out the animals in need.
“We’ve got a couple of people who foster dogs in the store and they said ‘come on, lets do something for the animals,’” she said.
“There’s no need to throw things away, there’s cats and dogs out there who really need that stuff. It doesn’t take much.”
Animal Protection Society Vice President Clare Mills said they were thankful for the donations.
“We are most appreciative of anybody donating anything they can, we are grateful, we can use pretty much anything to help supply refuge for abandoned animals,” she said.
