LIBRARY SPONSORS 7th ANNUAL PET FOOD DRIVE
The Flora Public Library, in cooperation with Fur a Good Paws, will be sponsoring a pet food drive, “Feed the Furry,” again this year. The library’s 7th annual pet food drive begins Monday, September 19 and will end Friday, October 29. October is Adopt-A-Pet month, too.
Pet food items, suitable for dogs or cats, may be dropped off at the library during regular operating hours. Currently, canned and dry food, primarily for cats and kittens, is needed. All pet food is welcomed. In addition to food, donations of scoopable and non-scoopable cat litter, and cleaning supplies, such as paper towels, Chlorox Wipes, vinegar, bleach, flea medicine, and large trash bags, would be very helpful.
Fur a Good Paws is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Clay County that provides a licensed no-kill rescue that cares for homeless pets. The group is grateful to have received a donated building that is being remodeled as its rescue and pet adoption center. The cat area is finished and plans are underway to begin remodeling of the dog area. The group promotes spaying/neutering and pet adoptions to reduce the number of homeless pets in the community. For more information, visit http://www.furagoodpaws.org/. They are also on Facebook.
Hours at the library are: Monday – Thursday 1:30 to 8:30, Friday 10:00 to 6:00 and Saturday 10:00 to 3:00. For more information please call the library at 662-6553. Donated items will assist Fur a Good Paws in helping rescue animals and other needy dogs and cats. Please help our four-footed friends by giving to “Feed the Furry”.
