Mounds Annual drive to get holiday donations for Dane & Rock County Humane Society begins.
Santa at Mounds
Location: Fitchburg Mounds
Time: 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Santa is helping collect either monetary donations or pet food for the Help Keep Pets in their Homes program. The Help Keep Pets in their Homes program helps families during hard economic times who are struggling to stretch their limited resources. Families faced with the choice of purchasing pet food or providing for their family’s needs may have to make the heartbreaking decision to give up their pet. At a time when unconditional love from a pet is needed the most, some families need to make this tragic decision. Pets may be given to relatives or friends, surrendered to Dane County Humane Society or, sadly in some cases, abandoned.To help families keep their pets at home, Dane County Humane Society with Community Action Coalition for South Central WI, Inc. help collect and supply pet food and cat litter to participating Dane County food pantries. Since beginning in December 2011, the program has collected and distributed more than 150,000 pounds of pet food and kitty litter to local food pantries!
