In honor of National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, Mica Hase of Snoopy’s Cat Sitting and Sunny Adams of The Pets Pal are joining forces with the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) for the “Presents 4 Pets” campaign, a collection drive to benefit pets in Santa Barbara animal shelters, and provide items desperately needed to help keep shelters operational and animals comfortable and safe. The campaign will be running during the month of October and will culminate in the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, observed November 4-10, 2012.

As part of this annual campaign, Snoopy’s Cat Sitting and The Pets Pal are reaching out to encourage animal lovers to donate products such as toys, cat and dog food, treats, blankets, towels, beds, leashes and collars, litter boxes and kitty litter, as well as cleaning materials. The donations will benefit locally run shelters: ASAP, DAWG, ResQCats and Cold Noses, Warm Hearts. Donations may be deposited inside the Santa Barbara Main Library.

“This is a great opportunity for all animal lovers to make a difference for pets that are victims or abuse, neglect, indifference, and a harsh economy,” commented Mica Hase of Snoopy’s Cat Sitting. “In addition to offering support to abandoned pets in Santa Barbara, we hope to generate awareness of our community rescue shelters and the important role they serve”, said Sunny Adams of The Pets Pal.
