On your next visit to the store, will you please consider adding a bag or two to your shopping cart?
Donations can be dropped off at the Adoption Center at 14 Forever Friend Lane! With nearly 40 kitty litter boxes to clean daily in the Adoption Center, you'll be helping quite a few feline friends! Meows and purrs of thanks to you! Questions? Call 761-2001.
