Animal Angel Tree Campaign to Help Pets at Salem Shelter
Northeast Animal Shelter Focus of Best Friends Angel Campaign
Local animal lovers can share their holiday spirit by donating food, toys and treats for homeless dogs and cats through Best Friends Pet Care’s 12th Annual Animal Angel Tree campaign. All donations will benefit the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem.
“The holiday season is always difficult for our local animal shelters,” explains Agni Sarmaniote of Best Friends Pet Care in Wakefield. “This year, Hurricane Sandy has put an even bigger burden on shelters because so many lost and abandoned pets need help. We know our Angel Tree program will make a difference for many pets in need.”
The Animal Angel Tree in Best Friends lobby is decorated with paper ornaments featuring photos and information about needy dogs and cats. Pet lovers can call to select a card from the tree and donate from the shelter’s wish list for that dog or cat. All pets featured on the tree are available for adoption.
Donations to the Animal Angel Tree program can be made by visiting Best Friends at 15 Main Street in Wakefield or by calling 781-245-1237 before December 31, 2012.
Best Friends Pet Care offers boarding, grooming and doggy day camp. The Animal Angel Tree campaign is one way the company gives back to the community. For more information visit www.bestfriendspetcare.com.
The Northeast Animal Shelter is one of New England’s largest no-kill animal shelters. The non-profit organization is privately run and depends upon donations to rescue and re-home the animals in its care. For information, visit www.northeastanimalshelter.org.
