‘Wishmas Tree’ Helps Chatham County’s Sheltered Dogs and Cats
Chatham County’s Animal Shelter is hosting a ‘Wishmas Tree’ to collect much-needed donations to help furry friends housed in the shelter. Gifts are accepted any time that the shelter is open.
“We especially need donations of safe play toys, such as Kong Chew Toys,” said Leigh Anne Garrard, director of Chatham County Animal Control. “Fabric toys should be washable and rugged.”
Garrard said that enrichment toys that help dogs and cats pass the time is good for their health. “Any donation of rugged toys of all sizes is greatly appreciated.”
Toys can be brought to the Animal Shelter on Monday through Friday, 11 am to 4 pm, and on Saturdays from 8 am to noon. The shelter is located about five miles west of Pittsboro just off US 64 on Landfill Road.
Garrard added, “Giving someone a pet for the holiday should be done with a great deal of thought about what is involved in caring for the new family addition. However, if your household is considering a pet, we hope that you will come visit the very deserving dogs and cats in our shelter.”
