Thanks to your donations, the shelves on some area animal shelters are better stocked today.
The Paducah Police Department teamed up Saturday with PetSmart for “Cops ‘Paws’ For a Cause,” a donation drive aimed at filling the pantries at area shelters. Officers were on-site at PetSmart from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., and accepted 1,624 pounds of dry dog and cat food.
Donors also gave 120 cans of food, 25 boxes/bags of treats, two pet beds, four blankets, one metal dog fence and numerous cleaning supplies.
The PPD would like to thank the public for its support of this project.
