With National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week coming up in November, Floofins & Co., Chicago’s Suburban Kenneling Alternative, is joining forces with the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) for the “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 7-13, 2010. 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.
Drop boxes will be available at the following locations beginning on October 1st through the end of appreciation week on November 13th: Two Bostons of Naperville, The Modern Dog Boutique of Clarendon Hills, Carol Stream Animal Shelter of Carol Stream, Planet Beach of Elmhurst, and Pets Etc. of Naperville Floofins & Co. clients can also leave items at their home for pick up by Floofins & Co. staff.
This year’s donations will be benefiting Cap Nap From the Heart of La Grange, Du Page Animal Care and Control of Wheaton, Hinsdale Humane Society of Hinsdale, Naperville Area Humane Society of Naperville, and West Suburban Humane Society of Downers Grove.
