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!

Well Done Chippewa County Animal Shelter!

Thank you for this work you have done.
Shelter Manager Holly Henderson said the 2010 numbers were very similar. Of the 966 animals — 523 dogs and 443 cats — brought in last year, only 29 had to be euthanized for very specific reasons. The remaining animals were primarily returned to their owners or adopted out to good homes.

“We have worked very hard to ensure no healthy adoptable animal is euthanized at our shelter,” said Henderson.
This wonderful shelter is in Michigan.

Soo Evening has the story.
