With National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week at hand, Skaneateles' Amy Schiek of Lucky Dogs Canine Services 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 coincides with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week observed Nov. 7 to 13. As part of this annual program, Lucky Dogs Canine Services and other NAPPS members across the country are reaching out to their clients and communities and encouraging them to collect and donate product for this worthy cause.
The Finger Lakes SPCA of Central New York will be the local beneficiary of the collection.
The following items are being sought: non-clumping cat litter, Purina Dog/Puppy/Cat/Kitten Chow, dry and liquid laundry detergent, antibacterial dish soap and hand soap, paper towels, and new and gently used towels and blankets.
Collection boxes for these items can be found from Nov. 7 to 13 at the following local businesses: Blue Danube in Skaneateles, Downtown Books in Auburn and Muldoon Dry Cleaners in Skaneateles and Auburn.
"This is a great opportunity for all animal lovers, pet owner or not, to help provide for those animals often forgotten," said Amy Schiek, owner of Lucky Dogs Canine Services. "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."
