The society’s director Kathy Maddox says it is really a big help. “Sometimes people want to give to the shelter but don’t always want to come out and do it. Having a box set up in the store allows them to give while they shop. It is really working well,” said a grateful Maddox.
Store co-manager James Nickerson says they are glad to be able to help. “This is a win win for everyone. This can help our sales, while getting products for the shelter and it makes people feels good about donating,” said Nickerson.
The shelter is always in need of dog and cat food, cat litter, bleach, trash bags, paper towel, disinfectant, detergent and cedar chips.
Tractor Supply Company (TSC), located in the shopping center off of Clarksville Road, is also lending the animals a helping paw by putting up an Angel Christmas tree which holds the photos of animals at the shelter.
The tree allows for those who wish to help the opportunity to see the animal they are sponsoring. Rather it be purchasing supplies for that animal or paying for it to be spayed or neutered or wanting to go as far as adopting it.
“We appreciate all that these two businesses do for the shelter. This is just two more reminders of how the community makes a difference in the lives of the unwanted animals in Logan County,” said Maddox. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the Humane Society would not be able to save so many of these animals lives if it were not for the kind hearted people in Logan County.”
