Giv­ing to pet cause

Comment News (Armadale) - - Business -

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.
