Animals are messy. They have accidents indoors and they get dirty. The Clinton County Humane Society, which adopts about 500 animals a year, goes through a great deal of paper towels when cleaning up animal messes. So this year for the Christmas season, the shelter is asking for help in supplying paper towels.
The donation drive is called “Deck the Halls with Paper Towels.” CCHS has enlisted the help of Mac the English mastiff, rescued by the county dog warden and adopted through the Clinton County Humane Society, to charm folks into thinking of homeless animals when they’re out shopping.
The donation drive is an inexpensive way to contribute to the operations at the Clinton County Humane Society, at 1760 Fife Ave. in Wilmington. Folks can pick up a roll or two of paper towels (any brand!) on their next run to the grocery store. Or they can buy a warehouse-club size pack. “Deck the Halls with Paper Towels” is an easy way for children to help too.
Donations may be dropped off at shelter at 1760 Fife Ave. at the donor’s convenience. If one of the shelter volunteers isn’t in the building at the time, just leave the donation on the covered porch. To receive acknowledgement, please include a name (or a group’s name) and address with each donation.
The Clinton County Humane Society is a volunteer-based, nonprofit organization. It does not receive county or government funding and depends on adoption donations and monetary gifts to fund the shelter. Monetary gifts also may be sent to CCHS, P.O. Box 1024, Wilmington, OH 45177.
