Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Maximus the Graduate

Click the title for a nice story about one of the dogs adopted out of Yonkers Animal Shelter earlier this year. 

Here's an exerpt:

We are a very happy family of four, and we are so thankful the shelter rescued Maximus so that he could be a part of our lives. Thank you!

Oh, I also forgot to mention that Maximus has a “security blanket.” It is a red Kong ball that he carries around with him everywhere. He will play catch with it until he is completely exhausted. It is the only toy strong enough to withstand his powerful jaws. I think we spent several hundred dollars on toys that he destroyed before we found this one. It has been around for months and our budget is very thankful…..LOL.
