13th Annual Angel Tree to Support Homeless Pets

Every year at each of our locations, we have an Animal Angel Tree program that collects donations for shelter and rescue groups until the end of the year. Actually, since it began in December 2000, the Best Friends Pet Care Angel Tree campaign has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of food, toys and pet care products to more than 100 different shelters and rescues across the U.S. — and dozens of pets have found new homes in time for the new year.

If you come in for a visit from now through New Years, spend a few minutes looking at the ornaments on the Angel Tree as well as the shelter wish list items. The ornaments have pictures and information about dogs and cats in the local shelters and rescues and what they’re wishing for this Christmas or Hanukkah. It’s the perfect time to band together and help the homeless pets in our local community.

Please help us continue to support homeless pets by donating unused items from their wish lists, by purchasing items from our lobby to donate, or by making a donation that we can add to your bill.

Call your local center to find out more details or to make a donation over the phone.

Help Pets Affected by the Colorado Floods

The recent floods in Colorado have been both terrifying and devastating. Hundreds are homeless and many have been separated from their pets.

At every Best Friends Pet Care location we will begin taking monetary donations for the Weld County Humane Society and the Longmont Humane Society. We want to assist in their effort to saves pets lost in wake of the floods and to reunite them with their families. Additionally, our Wheat Ridge, CO location will be acting as a drop off point for other donations.

We invite pet lovers to make donations by visiting or calling any Best Friends Pet Care center. Click here for a list of our locations.

Heroes & Hounds- Supporting Our Working Dogs

When we learned of the Heroes & Hounds program, founded by Mark Rudewicz of the Simsbury Police Department, we knew we had to help.

Officer Rudewicz started the program of sending care packages to dogs serving on the front lines, four years ago. It started out as a holiday initiative and has since turned into a year round program. There are over 1400 dogs serving in the military. Currently, Hounds & Heroes is supporting the dogs in Afghanistan. These dogs are IED dogs and they are on the front lines, working right alongside the troops.

When we heard about all of this, we gathered up supplies fro these canine heroes right away. While being stationed in Afghanistan there is no local pet store, so we were sure to send a variety of supplies. Robin, Vanessa, Kim & Michael, all management team members at Best Friends Pet Care, took a trip up to Simsbury to meet Office Rudewicz and to drop off the supplies we collected (two truck fulls!). We were able to supply them with grooming supplies, collars and leashes as well as some toys and items to help the dogs unwind when not on duty.

We are delighted to be working with Officer Rudewicz and the Heroes and Hounds program and plan to continue supporting such an important cause.
