The holidays have always been a time of giving to those who are less fortunate. There are thousands of companion animals who have been abandoned or relinquished to rescue organizations that struggle to provide basic services for them. Pet lovers look for ways they can help, but the need is so great, sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what is needed.
The Animal Hospital of Statesville is sponsoring our fifth annual Furry Angel Tree to benefit local animal rescue organizations with which we are closely associated. These organizations include the Humane Society of Iredell County, the Iredell County Animal Shelter, and Forever Home Canine Rescue, The Duffy & Katie Fund, Paws & Claws Feline Rescue, and Earth Angels Stray Cat Rescue.
The Wish List is available with the different rescue organizations’ names and their needs. You can access the needs list in the NOTES section of our Facebook page, going to our website to the Events tab , OR you can come by AHS to pick up a copy. Purchase the item or items noted on the list, and bring the purchased items back to the Furry Angel Tree in the lobby of the Animal Hospital of Statesville by 5:00 pm on December 22 . Representatives of the Animal Hospital of Statesville will then contact the participating rescue organizations to come and pick up their donated items in time for Christmas.
These organizations do so much year round to help out pets in need. It costs a lot of money to run these rescues. Pet lovers now have a way to help abandoned animals at this special time of year.
Come pick up the needs list today. Then watch as gifts for pets in need pile up under our Furry Angel Tree!
Our hours are:
Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday: 7 am to 7 pm
Wednesday and Friday: 7 am to 6 pm
Saturday: 8 am to 1 pm
We appreciate the generosity of our local pet lovers!
