Can’t adopt but still want to help? Consider these stocking stuffers for our shelter petsby Pima County News on Nov. 30, 2012, under Pima Animal Care Center, Pima County, Southern Arizona, Tucson, Uncategorized
“Our animals are well-tended, but we’re always appreciative of monetary donations and donated items,” said shelter manager Justin Gallick.
On average, it costs $15 a day to care for a shelter pet. Last year, the shelter took in more than 24,000 animals, with our pets staying with us an average of nine days.
“This season is infused with the spirit of giving and charity, and we would be grateful for any assistance in fulfilling our mission to care for the animals,” Gallick said.
- New or gently used collars and leashes, Kong toys of varied sizes, tasty treats for training (preferably moist or dehydrated treats), dog biscuits, dry and canned cat/kitten and dog/puppy food, scoopable or clay cat litter, puppy and kitten replacement milk (such as KMR or Esbilac,) pet shampoo and nonporous, preferably plastic cat toys that can cleaned and reused
General shelter needs:
- Bottles of bleach, disinfectant wipes, towels, sheets, hand sanitizer, and 4- to 8-quart galvanized buckets
- Black and blue ink pens, spiral notebooks, staples/paperclips/binder clips, clip boards, colored construction paper and other art and craft supplies
Of course, the best gift is a gift of a home. Come visit our adoptable pets!
