Have You Checked Your Wish List Lately?!

Nearly every local animal shelter has a website with information, some even have a Wish List. So if you can't foster an animal ~ or ~ don't have money to donate ~ or ~ time to volunteer, check our their Wish List! This popped up on my facebook the other day...


Clean MASCARA WANDS??? The mascara you should throw away after 3 months has a place to be recycled. The Appalachian Wildlife Refuge collects clean mascara brushes to remove fly eggs stuck in animal fur. Who knew?! YOU NEVER KNOW what your local animal shelter might need! They also collect other things too.


I know what I'll be doing with those used wands! They can be mailed to:

Appalachian Wild
P.O. Box 1211
Skyland, NC 28776

I frequently check out our local SPCA Serving Erie County Wish List and the needs are grouped by department. They collect obvious things like blankets, cat food, and pooper scoopers, but not so obvious things too, like crowbars, highlighters, zip ties, and bandanas. Always check.

So be sure to think outside the litter box when it comes to donations. It's a win-win when you recycle and it goes towards a great cause!
