Animal shelter seeking donations for the holidays

Our furry friends at the Georgetown Animal Shelter want to remind everyone to keep them in mind throughout the holiday season, but especially on Giving Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Monetary donations are encourage; however, donated items also help to support the shelter’s animal welfare programs.

For donation ideas, there is an Angel Tree in the shelter lobby with ornaments featuring needed items, such as specialized toys, food, and cleaning products. These items are also featured on the shelter’s Amazon Wish List at tinyurl.com/WoofPurr. A portion of the money you spend on Amazon can also be donated to the shelter by selecting the animal shelter as your designated nonprofit on Amazon Smile.

Beds for dogs are also available to donate a discount to the shelter by visiting kuranda.com/donate and designating the Georgetown Animal Shelter as the recipient.

Other items accepted by the shelter include:

  • Laundry detergent
  • Dish soap
  • Facial tissues
  • Hand sanitizer
  • New or used blankets and towels

The Georgetown Animal Shelter is located at 110 W.L. Walden Drive, and is open Mon., Tue., Thu., and Fri. 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Sat.-Sun. noon-4 p.m. The shelter is closed on Wednesdays for deep cleaning and surgeries.
