Pickups for Paws: Helping Our Furry Friends
By: Michael Fossbakk
June 22, 2018
Anyone who has ever had a pet will know the love and joy they bring into our hearts. For as much love as we receive from them, any good pet owner will make sure the love is reciprocated. Whether that’s taking them for a walk, feeding them their favorite treat or just giving them a roof over their head, showing our pets how much we love them is both a responsibility and a privilege.
Unfortunately, not all animals are fortunate to be welcomed into a loving home. Many animals can be found wandering the streets, searching for basic needs, like food and shelter. If they are lucky, they will be taken to a shelter that can provide for their basic needs until a loving family takes them home. However, those shelters need help, too.
Basic supplies, like dog/cat food, dryer sheets, cleaning supplies, dog toys and more can be scarcely found at some shelters due to lack of funding. That’s where you and the Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers come in!
Pickups for Paws is your chance, for the entire month of June, to stop by a participating Metro Detroit Chevy Dealer to donate any supplies needed by these local animal shelters. Simply stop by with supplies found on the Pickups for Paws wish list and drop them off in the Chevy Silverado truck bed in the showroom. It will be proudly displaying the Pickups for Paws signage so you can’t miss it!
Some items on this year’s wish list include:
- AA & AAA batteries
- Cat & dog toys (nonporous)
- Cat litter
- Carrot tops (for rabbits)
- Dishwashing liquid
- Dog food rolls
- Dog treats/rawhide chews
- Dryer sheets
- Feliway spray
- Microfiber cleaning cloths
- Nature’s Miracle stain & odor remover
- Paper Towels
- Parsley (for rabbits)
- Peanut butter
- Swiffer® mop refills
You can make a difference in the life of an animal by simply donating some (or all!) of these goods to your local, participating Metro Detroit Chevy Dealer. Even the smallest contribution helps! Read Less
