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!

Give Milk-Bones and Give Back


For 12 years and counting, every time you buy Milk-Bone® dog snacks, a portion of the proceeds goes to help Canine Assistants®.
Canine Assistants is a non-profit organization, founded in 1991, that trains and provides service dogs for children and adults with special needs, free of charge.

Canine Assistants dogs open doors, pick up items, pull wheelchairs, go for help, turn on lights and perform over 90 other commands. The dogs also help in removing many of the social barriers faced by people who have disabilities.
