Holiday Idea!

Once again we will be offering our pet themed key chains for a $10.00 donation. They make great stockingstuffers. Last year we sold over 100 and were sold out before the holidays.

For now, the key chains are available at Lakewood Animal Hospital, 14587 Madison Avenue Lakewood. Click on the address for more information. We will be announcing another location soon! 100% of your donation goes to supplying food to those in need.

 

Photo: These are just a sampling of the tiny charms found on our key chains available at Style Mutt, 3525 Warren Road in Cleveland. Donation, $6.00 each and 100% of your donation goes towards the purchase of dog and cat food (at $10.00/50lb bag) to help pet owners experiencing difficulty in feeding their pets. Please stop up, visit with Pam and see all her great pet items and then pick up a key chain or two for stocking stuffers! Photo

Third Annual Super Bowl Sunday Food Drive

IMG_8040 smallOnce again, with the help of Laurie Sekeres and Ganley Subaru, we will hold our third annual “Stuff the Subaru” food drive on Sunday, February 2nd from 10am until 1:30pm Lakewood High School, 14100 Franklin Boulevard, Lakewood.

The game kicks off at 6:25pm so you have plenty of time to swing by and drop off your tax deductible donation.

Dry dog is most needed at this time, as well as 1 gallon zip-lock bags. Wet food is also appreciated, but not as crucial.

Help us make this our biggest collection ever! Hope to see you there.

H20 Kids at the Westerly

On Monday August 5th, the residents of The Westerly  Apartments enjoyed the 6 students and their counselor who joined them in a “Mass Bagging” event for My Best Friend’s Bowl. The students and the residents weighed dog and cat food, packaged and labeled 640 pounds total. It was quite an undertaking and they accomplished the job in less than 2 hours and with little or no spillage!

We’d like to thank Sarah,  the H20 counselor and the kids, who will be entering 6th grade this fall around Lakewood: Emily, Maddy, Esther, Joey, Kyle and Sean for helping us out with this project.

Thanks to out to Jackie, Aileen, Brenda, Irene and Johnnie from the Westerly for helping out and for hosting us.
