While not everyone can adopt a pet from a shelter, everyone can help the animals in our shelters stay warm. Giving a simple blanket to a cat or a dog in a shelter can relieve stress and provide much-needed comfort in an intimidating environment. Not only is it comforting for the animals but more comfortable animals are healthy animals which makes them more adoptable.
Local animal shelters need hundreds of blankets each winter, and our local San Tan Valley & Pinal County animal shelters are no different.
To help fill that need, local rescue, To Always Love Animals Rescue (TALAR) has partnered with the Auto Spa at Johnson Ranch for a blanket drive, to help keep the animals in our local shelters warm this season.
How can you help?
- Gather up any extra blankets, towels and sheets that you are no longer using and drop them off at the Auto Spa at Johnson Ranch located at 30994 N Golf Club Drive, San Tan Valley 85143 (Hunt Hwy & Golf Club Drive/Bella Vista) between 8am-5pm any day of the week. There is a box for donations located in the lobby.
- Ask any friends, relatives and neighbors if they have items to donate and gather them all together to drop off.
- Get your kids involved. This is a great opportunity to teach your kids how to give back to their community.
- Feel free to purchase new or used items from thrift stores, wholesale clubs, etc to donate. Many shelters and rescues have outdoor kennels and those animals are in desperate need of blankets to stay warm this winter.
"It's really tough to raise financial donations during the holiday season and we understand that," says Matt Dellaro, founder of TALAR. "That's why a local blanket drive is such a great idea. You don’t need money to help. People can look in their closet and look for an old blanket or towel. Everyone has an old towel that they can donate."
"We are exited to be able to to work with TALAR," Jason Monz, General Manager of Auto Spa at Johnson Ranch said, "Two local businesses working together to make a difference is what it's all about."
