make a difference to a shelter

Most animal shelters need simple things like food, clorox, rags, newspaper. These are items easy to collect and perhaps get donations from friends and family. It's a great project for school and a terrific way to help make the animal's life a little happier until he or she finds a home.http://www.lynnegobioff.com

Angels and Nature! (previously published)
