Donated change does add up for animals

To the editor:

I want to thank this generous community for caring so much about animals in need. Every month when I collect the change from donation cans for one of our local animal shelters, I am delighted with the unwavering financial support we get.

None of this would be possible without our local stores and restaurants that allow us to place collection cans by their cash registers. Many thanks to all of them!

If you ever wonder if the change you get from the register, donated to the container of your choice makes a difference, please believe that when it all gets added up, it makes a huge difference! Many thanks to everyone!
