The shelter is asking for fleece blanket donations. Staff members say the blankets give dogs and cats something cozy to snuggle up with, but they are also a good choice for pet safety.
"They are also beneficial in a couple of other ways. Compared to stuffed blankets, they are a lot easier to clean, more environmentally friendly in that regard. They also help prevent animals from ingesting any of the stuffing,” said Ryan Willis of the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA.
The SPCA is also accepting donations of canned dog and cat food and soft treats. You can make the donations at locations on Berkmar Drive, at Pantops, or at the rummage store on Preston.
