P4P Means Presents 4 Pets, An Annual Collection Drive Benefiting Pets In Shelters!
With National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week coming up in November, Floofins & Co., Chicago’s Suburban Kenneling Alternative, has joined forces with the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) for their second annual “Presents 4 Pets” campaign, a collection drive to benefit pets in shelters and provide items desperately needed to help keep shelters operational, and animals comfortable and safe.
This national program, already underway, will run until mid November, coinciding with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week observed November 6-12, 2011. As part of this annual program, Floofins & Co. and other NAPPS members across the country are reaching out to their clients and community and encouraging them to collect and donate items such as dog and cat food, treats, kitten milk replacement, cat litter, toys, bleach, towels and blankets, leashes and collars and trash bags.
This is a great opportunity for all animal lovers to help provide for those animals often forgotten. In addition to offering support to our local shelters and shelter animals, we hope to generate awareness of community shelters and the important role they serve in our community
