Humane Society asking for donations of kitty litter

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes has launched a unique new campaign to fill the gap at Christmas.

This year the shelter is asking the public to donate litter during their first ever ’12 Days of Litter’ campaign. Purchasing non-clumping, unscented kitty litter, will help re-stock the shelter for 2019 and encourages the public to shop local.

“We realize how heavy litter is and to move it from store to shelter is not an easy task for many of our donors. This campaign allows you to purchase litter from any of the participating retailers and leave it there. Shelter staff will pick up the purchased litter directly from the store, it’s that simple,” says Executive Director, Henny Venus.

Litter is the number one item on the shelter’s wish list, “Litter is always in need. We prefer the non-clumping brands because clumping gets stuck in our drains and pipes, not to mention some kittens try to eat the finer textured litter. We do however, welcome news-paper based brands, such as, Yesterday’s News, for kittens and recently spayed/neutered cats,” explains Courtney Bryans, Shelter Manager.

Clubs, businesses, schools and individuals are welcome to take part in the collection of litter.

HSKL’s goal is to collect a total of 100 units of litter between December 3 to 14. Those who prefer to personally drop of a donation of litter are more than welcome to. HSKL is also accepting monetary or gift card donations, for those who would prefer the shelter to purchase the litter themselves.

Participating retailers are all located in Lindsay and include: TSC, Trent Pet, Global Pet Foods, PetValu, Giant Tiger, Victor Feeds Horse & Hound, Reid’s ValuMart and La Mantia’s.
