PENNY JAR NEWS
The proceeds from our May Penny Jar collection will also be designated for Lollypop Farm. They need our help supporting them. See additional information below:
Shelters are still caring for animals even though most have closed their doors to the public. But as they lay off staff, much of the work (cleaning, feeding and walking) is falling to skeleton crews. Meanwhile, adoption events and fundraisers which are the life blood of these non-profits have been cancelled. It couldn't have come at a worse time.
March is typically when pregnant animals and litters of unwanted kittens and puppies start showing up. It's really overwhelming for most shelters out there because all these litters start coming in on a daily basis. When space is severely limited, euthanasia becomes a population control tool.
As people lose their jobs and possibly their homes, many will be forced to give up their pets. Recently in the news, it was noted that some families, concerned that their pets may be exposed to the virus have been abandoning them at the shelter.
Please consider donating to Lollypop Farm through our Penny Jar funds this month. You can mail a check in any amount made out to the church, and we will total the donations and send one check from the church account.
