THIS HOLIDAY SEASON TAKE PART IN THE
“CARING PAWS FOR THE CAUSE” GIVING TREE

GREAT FALLS, Montana – The Great Falls Animal Shelter has once again placed a “Caring Paws for the Cause” giving tree at Petcetra (1525 10th Avenue South) to benefit the animals at the Great Falls Animal Shelter. Items included on the tree are from the Shelter’s Wish List. Donors are asked to take a “tag” from the tree and purchase the item listed. Items can be returned directly to the donation collection box at Petcetra or taken to the Shelter. The “Caring Paws for the Cause” tree will be up through the week of Christmas.

Items being asked for include things such as cat litter, fleece blankets, cat and dog toys, Clorox wipes, small towels and newspaper. The Shelter’s full Wish List can be viewed at www.greatfallsmt.net/animalshelter/wish-list.

Monetary donations are also being accepted and can be directed to the project of the donor’s choice. The Shelter is currently raising funds for the: Guardian Angel Fund (assists with veterinary care of Shelter animals), the Adoption Fund (helps reduce the cost of adoptions during promotions) and the “Help Us Grow” Project (raising funds for Shelter building improvements including a Cattery). Checks should be made payable to the Great Falls Animal Shelter and sent to PO Box 5021; Great Falls, MT 59403-5021.

For more information about the “Caring Paws for the Cause” giving tree, contact Laura McElhinney, Volunteer Coordinator, at 454-2276.
