Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts is collecting donations for Operation Military Care K-9, a project run by the United States War Dogs Association. The project benefits military working dog teams who have been deployed to the Middle East. Items are being accepted at both Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts locations in Wall Township and Tinton Falls, New Jersey.
Items needed include K-9 products, food and snacks for the handlers as well as entertainment and toiletry items. Visit www.purrnpooch.com for a complete list of what is needed. Donations will be accepted now through Jan. 10, 2014.
The Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals will host a volunteer working day on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014 at 2 p.m. at their Tinton Falls location. The general public and Foundation supporters are invited to write letters to the dog handlers and prepare their care packages for shipment. If interested in volunteering or for more information, email email@example.com.
