‘Giving Thanks and Giving Back’ donation drive in memory of Pocket pooch
Land Park/Greenhaven Jazzercise is hosting a donation drive to benefit the animals at the Sacramento SPCA in honor and loving memory of dachshund Olive Collins, a Pocket resident whose life was tragically cut short when she was hit by a passing auto.
The donation drive will be held on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 25. Those interested in attending a team taught Jazzercise class at 9:15 a.m. are welcome. However, it is not necessary to participate in Jazzercise to make a donation that will help the animals.
In addition to monetary donations, the SPCA shelter animals and the humans who care for them need: art display boards/easels, bath towels, bleach, manual can openers, Carefresh animal bedding, cat toys and treats, cat trees and scratching posts, collars, dog toys and treats, grooming clippers (Oscar A5/#40 blades), heating pads, humidifiers (for sick animals), KMR – kitten milk replacement, Kongs, leashes, long-handled squeegees, meat-flavored baby food (for sick and finicky eaters), newspaper (rolled tubes of 25-35 sheets each), peanut butter, pet beds, plastic litterboxes (small) and stainless steel dog and cat bowls.
If you plan to be out of town on Thanksgiving Day, items can be dropped off with Linda Pohl at the Valley Community Newspapers office, located at 2709 Riverside Blvd. in Sacramento.
