Put those leashes towards a good cause.Animal shelters rely on donations heavily. From food for the dogs and cats to bags for picking up poop, if you have it to give away, we can usually take it and use it to help the animals.
In June, we are having our 2nd Shot Fair of 2006. Despite the rain, our first one in February was a success. We are changing locations this time to see if we can reach more people. We will be at 410 Hegenberger (our spay neuter center) on June 17th from 11-3.
Although many items (like vaccincations, food to give away, microchips) have already been donated for the Shot Fair, we are in desperate need of leashes to give away. Dog owners show up to these fairs with their dogs on ropes, chains, towels, string and one even showed up with her dog stuffed up in a tiny shopping cart. We like to provide these well-meaning, but uninformed people, with appropriate leashes and collars so they can better handle their dogs and so their dogs can be more comfortable.
We have plenty of collars, but we need leashes. Good, sturdy leashes for those big dogs. If you know of any stores that can donate leashes, please let us know! If you have any lying around the house, bring them down to the East Bay SPCA and put those leashes towards a good cause.
