To the Editor:
The Friends of Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter would love to send out a huge thank-you for the very successful bake sale this year at Wally Mitchell’s Restaurant in Surf City. We were able to raise $2,600.
The whole Island pitched in with enthusiasm to help us raise awareness about animals in need, raise funds to aid us in rescues, and our pet food pantry was given the boost it so needed. Keeping the pantry full is always tough, but so important.
When struggling families have the means to feed their pets they are less likely to surrender them to the shelter. Keeping them home is our goal. We have many drop-off points.
We thank all the people and businesses for contributing to our ongoing efforts. You are all so appreciated for taking the time out of your lives to bake, donate and volunteer.
Please take some time and go to your local shelter and adopt your next pet, you’ll save a life.
