Humane Society Annual Collection




Hello All!!!

It's that time of year again! I am collecting donations for the Humane Society from November 16, 2009 thru January 4, 2010. This year all donations will go to the Galveston chapter of the Humane Society. Since Hurricane Ike, the Galveston Island Humane Society has never quite recovered and those poor little animals are in desperate need of some TLC. We are coming up on the 2-3 months of the year where it drops below 60 degrees. Those animals get chilly at night! Also, sometimes it is just nice for them to know someone cares.

Currently, the Galveston Island Humane Society is in need of the following (taken directly from their website):

* Dry dog/puppy food
* Dog/puppy collars
* Grooming supplies
* baby shampoo
* Dog toys
* Flea/tick spray/dip
* Small rugs

* Dry cat/kitten food
* Kitten formula
* Lots of cat litter (non-clumping)
* Toilet lid covers to use for cat beds
* Litter boxes
* Cat toys

* Bleach
* Paper towels
* Scrub shirts
* Laundry and liquid dish soap
* Towels


If you are someone who can donate services to help the Galveston Island Humane Society, they are currently in need of the following (taken directly from their website):

* electrician
* building maintenance
* animal grooming
* printing
* landscaping
* janitorial
* fence installation
* locksmith, etc.



Lastly, a neat idea would be the "Give the Gift of Comfort" option. This is a special way to show you care. An animal will get a good night's sleep and you will know that you are contributing to the welfare of the poor babies who are scared, homeless and want to feel safe. Make them more comfortable by purchasing a bed through this link: Donate to Galveston Island Human Society. All beds will be 30%-35% off of regular retail prices if you purchases through the aforementioned link and donate to the Galveston Island Humane Society.

I will update drop off locations for food and supplies. Currently, the main drop off location is:

Boulevard Realty
1545 Heights Blvd.
Houston, TX 77008

If you are in Galveston, then the drop off is:

Boulevard Realty
1401 Post Office
Galveston, TX 77550
Please ask for Bill Hammond at this location.

Keep in mind, financial donations are always appreciated. I do not collect these, however, if you want to donate funds to the Galveston Island Humane Society, please go here to do so: Contributions

Looking forward to seeing all of my fellow animal lovers come out in great force again this year. Last year was a great success for the Houston Chapter, now lets help out those who really need us in Galveston.

Take care,
Danelle
