Pet Food Donation Discount

In case you haven’t been outside…it’s SNOWING! These cold days and nights make us all want to cuddle under our favorite quilt. Our furry friends like to stay warm too, and with all the scraps we’ve been collecting, we have lots of pillows to deliver to the shelter. Before we go, we like to collect food to take with us. As an incentive for our customers, we are offering 15% off your purchase if you bring in a bag of cat food, dog food or kitty litter. Stop in with your donation before November 21st to take advantage of this offer!
