LEWISBURG (WVDN) –The West Virginia Daily News is excited to resume our annual Greenbrier Humane Society item drive from March 27-April 24.
Once again, the WVDN office is the gathering point for pet products delivered by generous contributors from around the Greenbrier Valley.
Last year, we reached our goal of collecting 2,000 items for the Humane Society. Let’s do it again this year! Our goal is to collect those items by Monday, April 24.
The West Virginia Daily News spoke with the Greenbrier Humane Society, and they provided a list of what they need at the animal shelter.
Items most needed include:
– clip on and slip leashes
– dry dog/cat food
– HE laundry detergent
– dryer sheets
– Clorox wipes
– treats dog/cat
– non-clumping litter
– Churu for cats
– collars medium/large
– paper towels
– 13-gallon trash bags
– Dawn dish soap
– cat beds
– litter scoopers
The Greenbrier Humane Society/is open to the public Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. for adoptions and to pick up spay/neuter vouchers. Animal intakes are done by appointment.
Animals ready for adoption are pictured along with descriptions on the Greenbrier Humane Society’s Facebook page. Click on photos then the “Available Cats” and “Available Dogs” albums to see animals that are available for adoption. The albums of available pets are kept up to date, so any appealing furry face shown is currently in the shelter; however, they may not be there for long. GHS has partnered with several rescue organizations in urban areas that often have waiting lists for cats and dogs. Although there are always animals at GHS, pets are typically rehomed within two weeks through local adoption or rescue partners.
The office is closed every Sunday, Monday and major holidays.
For more information, visit the Greenbrier Humane Society Facebook page, the website www.greenbrierhumane.org, or call 304-645-4775.
People wishing to donate to the GHS item drive can drop off pet care products at The West Virginia Daily News office at 188 Foster Street in Lewisburg between 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on Fridays.
Let’s get started, then keep those items coming through the door!
