The Animal Protection Society of Friday Harbor will observe and participate in “World Spay Day,” as it has for the last several years – by kicking off the Annual Community Pet Food Drive Friday, Feb. 14.
In an effort to top previous years’ donations, APS has issued a group challenge, inviting island businesses and organizations to join in the fun by collecting the most dry or canned pet food during the 11-day drive.
Donors may also contribute cash for purchase of pet food for the drive. Pet food donations will be tracked and tallied by the shelter.
APS’ goal this year is to collect a total of 2 tons of food. The contest will conclude Tuesday, Feb. 25. The winning team will be announced that evening at the annual “Spay-getti Dinner,” at the Mullis Center. The group that collects the most pet food will earn a delicious lunch, prepared and delivered by APS staff and volunteers.
