Boxes of Pup-Peroni & Blankets All the Way from Jersey
A few weeks ago we put out a call for Pup-Peroni (great for dog training) and our usual request of towels, blankets and poop bags and were completely overwhelmed by the generosity of one person in particular.
Rachel, an ARL volunteers, shared the Boston shelter’s Facebook status requesting these items. Out of nowhere, all of these boxes, pictured right, showed up at her office. They were filled with goodies for the shelter, completely unexpected. Sami, a former co-worker of hers who now lives in New Jersey, had seen the ARL’s request on Rachel’s timeline and surprised her by shipping several boxes of much needed items for our shelter.
According to Rachel, Sami had a dog many years ago, but because he travels a lot for work, he’s not in a position to have one right now. It’s obvious to us all that he’s a huge animal lover and is making a difference for animals in need.
Rachel said “he’s a pretty great guy, so genuine and obviously very, very generous. I’m so thankful to him for this gift. It’s simply amazing.”
Even when you can’t make a donation, simply by sharing the ARL’s status or photo, you could help animals just like Rachel and her friend did. You never know, who will see and feel moved to make a donation.
Thank you Rachel and Sami for being such fantastic supporters of shelter animals!
