LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- New and used linens are being sought by the Animal Foundation to help keep pets in its care healthy, warm and happy as temperatures drop this weekend.
"With the recent drop in temperatures, we're working hard to keep our shelter pets warm, comfortable and healthy," said Megan Scheibe, marketing and public relations manager for the Animal Foundation. "We rely on donations of linens, like blankets, sheets and towels."
Scheibe said today that all of the shelter's linens are in use as of today and the shelves are empty.
"With this cold front lasting through Monday, we want to make sure we have enough linens for all of our animals," Scheibe said.
The foundation accepts new and gently used linens including towels and bath mats, blankets, sheets, pillow cases, t-shirts and sweat shirts. It will also accept donations of materials with stuffing, including comforters. Items with stuffing can only be used with one pet before they must be discarded to keep the pets healthy. Items that are torn or ripped may not be usable.
Donations may be dropped off daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Animal Foundation's campus, 655 N. Mojave Road in Las Vegas.
