ANIMAL SHELTER SEEKING HOLIDAY DONATIONS
“CARING PAWS FOR THE CAUSE” GIVING TREE
GREAT FALLS, Montana – The Great Falls Animal Shelter Volunteer Program, the Shelter Sidekicks, placed a “Caring Paws for the Cause” giving tree at Petcetra (1525 10th Avenue South) to benefit the animals at the Great Falls Animal Shelter. Items included on the tree are from the Shelter’s wish list. Donors are asked to take a “tag” from the tree and purchase the item listed. Items can be returned directly to the donation collection box at Petcetra or the shelter. The “Caring Paws for the Cause” tree will be up through December 25.
Can’t make it down to the store but want to participate? The Shelter wish list can also be viewed online. Monetary donations are also accepted and will be dedicated to the Guardian Angel Fund which provides emergency veterinarian care and pays for the spaying and neutering of animals during adoption promotions. Checks should be made payable to the Great Falls Animal Shelter and sent to PO Box 5021; Great Falls, MT 59403-5021.
