Don't Forget A Pet!
Holiday gifts make a big difference
As you make your holiday gift list, remember local pet shelters. You can donate dollars and items, or volunteer your time and talents. “Our volunteers assist with adoptions, socializing dogs and cats, offsite events and they also work as lobby greeters,” says Karen Fordiani, public information specialist with Lee County Domestic Animal Services.
The pet pantry always needs dry and canned dog and cat food. Blankets, towels, beds, toys and treats are welcome, as well. The shelter’s Amazon Wish List sends donations directly to the shelter; donate dollars directly (via check or online) or to the Animal Care Trust Fund.
