Lena's Shopping List

Sneak a Peek at
Lena’s Shopping List
and see what the animals are shopping for this week

Donation Drop off Noon - 2 pm every Saturday !!!

Canned Cat Food - this will almost always be at the top of the list !   Stock up when you get a chance or see a sale!  Winter is coming and food consumption is already way up.

Canned dog food is down to only a case or two.

When we can scrape up the cash to buy daily laundry detergent, dish detergent, hand soap, bleach, paper towels and trash bags, we do.  We have no cash to stock up.  Some days we've had to go without.  These items are so simple, yet so important.

We need produce, especially oranges for the guinea pigs.

We also desperately need cash to pay the vet, the pharmacy, the feed store and electric bills.   

Thankfully Purina has been keeping us in dry cat and dog food!!!!

Can you spare a buck or two?  Please help us if you can, we're gearing up for winter when all the expenses increase for us to keep the animals happy and healthy.
