OCEANSIDE — North County Humane Society & SPCA asks that the public remember the hundreds of homeless and abandoned dogs, cats, and rabbits who will be spending this holiday season at the shelter. By donating a gift of food, toys, blankets, or money to a homeless animal in need, people can make holiday wishes come true for our furry friends.
“As the budget gets a little tighter every kind of donation assists us in providing more for the animals in our care and making their holiday season a little brighter,” said NCHS Executive Director Julie Bank. “When you give a gift to the animals, you truly are making a change in their life.”
Monetary donors will have the opportunity to hang an ornament honoring a special person or pet on the NCHS holiday tree. Donated pet food feeds the thousands of animals that come through the shelter doors and supports the NCHS foster care program that cares for orphaned or injured pets.
NCHS also accepts donations of old blankets and towels to help keep the animals comfortable and warm this winter.
For details, visit www.nchumane.org. Donations can be brought to 2905 San Luis Rey Road in Oceanside. The facility is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on major holidays.
