Bargains, Bogies, Big Bands = Help for our homeless pets
September 10, 2009 - Amy Jo Hanna-Eckenrode
It’s a busy time here in Central PA for our shelters. Like most every other animal shelter across the country ours is overflowing with animals looking for new homes. Every day, staff members arrive to find at least one dog tied to the front door or roaming the fenced yard.
If you don’t have the time, resources or room to adopt a forever pal at this time, take a look at the following list of upcoming events. All monies raised at these events help to care of the homeless pets until they are able to find their forever homes. For our fur-baby blog friends outside of Central PA, check with your local shelters and rescues. I guarantee they have a similar list of upcoming events as well as a list of items they desperate need donated:
