Help the Helpers This Holiday Season

November 7th, 2011

Dog in santa hatWhat’s on your holiday shopping list this year? How about a chew toy and a case of cat food? This is National Animal Shelter Appreciation week and the CVM Shelter Medicine Club is hard at work raising money and supplies for local animal shelters.

Shelter Medicine Club members regularly volunteer at free clinics for homeless pets throughout the Willamette valley so they see first-hand how the tough economy is impacting man’s best friends. This month they are actively seeking donations to help these animals get through the winter. Among the items needed are blankets, pet food, dog and cat crates, collars, leashes, and money for medicine. To donate, contact club co-president Laura Niman at laura.niman@gmail.com.

If you are in the Magruder Hall neighborhood this week, be sure to stop by for breakfast. The Shelter Medicine Club is selling coffee and bagels in the atrium every morning from 8 a.m. to noon (9 a.m. on Thursday). All proceeds will go to Heartland Humane Society and Safe Haven Humane Society.

Help the Shelter Medicine volunteers put the HoHoHo in a homeless pet’s holiday!
