Home Van Pet Care Project News - Christmas 2015

Our Mission:  To provide food for pets of homeless persons in our community; offer education on pet care and spay/neuter; assist with access to veterinary care; foster respect for animals and the animal/human bond.

"Still Crazy After All These Years"
(Paul Simon 1975)
Our primary mission at Home Van Pet Care Project is to provide food for pets of homeless and low income people in our community. We’ve been doing this for eight years, with your help, with love for the animals, compassion for the people, a little craziness, and lots of pet food.

CHRISTMAS FOR THE ANIMALS.  At Christmas, in addition to their regular pet food, we prepare a gift bag for each dog or cat. Each bag contains a small toy, a can of special food, and treats. We bring cookies for the people and relax a little with our animal friends and their people. We party at our regular distribution times and places.
As always, we ask you to help us by donating gift items for this event. For the pet gifts, we will need sturdy gift bags of cloth, paper or plastic, together with the toys, canned food and treats to put inside.
In addition to special items for the gifts, we will need extra pet food for the holidays. We use a lot of Purina, green bag for the dogs and Friskies Seafood Sensation for the cats. Publix types are fine and also others of your choosing. We bag it up into smaller containers so that everyone gets some.

We send sincere thanks to all our donors, as well as our hardworking volunteers who work all year and especially hard at Christmas. Actually, we are all volunteers at Home Van Pet Care Project. Some of us started way back at the beginning and others have responded by helping us along the way, while others are “on call” for special needs.

If you have questions, if you want to help with asking for donations, preparing the gift bags or distribution, or want more information, please call or text Elizabeth, 352-246-2727.

This kitty at Dignity Village says, "I like those soft, warm little blankets, too."

  6. All these dogs are really cute and adorable. They are actually cute but it is not that easy to keep them healthy and happy as we always need to follow the Pet Grooming Tips in depth as making them happy is always difficult and need more input then before. But above all the pets are loyal to you lifelong that even most of the humans fail to do.
