Pets in Omaha’s “Warmest Wishes” Donation Day Event

By on September 15, 2014

Join Pets in Omaha as it hosts its first donation drive!

Last December, we brought you a story on Papillion’s Town & Country Humane Society. T&C is one of the many area shelters in need of community support and involvement, and because part of our mission is to help adoptable animals find loving homes, we’re calling for your help in raising funds and donating materials that will help Town & Country remain successful.

On September 27, 2014, Pets in Omaha will be holding its first ever Donation Day event, “Warmest Wishes,” to benefit T&C. If you’d like to know a bit more about the shelter, please read our previous story or visit the shelter’s Web site here. T&C is a not-for-profit shelter and great member of our pet community, so help us help them stock up for the fall and winter with needed everyday supplies.
