Huntsville Animal Services accepting pet supplies ahead of Thanksgiving


HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Huntsville Animal Services (HAS) hosted a pet supply drive called “Bones for the Holidays” on Saturday.

The drive was looking for several items for pets ahead of the holiday season, including Kong dog toys, pet collars, canned dog food, chew toys, treats for cats and dogs, Nylon dog leashes, cat litter, and laundry detergent.

Those interested in donating can drive through the HAS parking lot to drop off items.

“We’re going to go all the way until the day before Thanksgiving,” said Animal Care Supervisor Stephanie McBride. “That way people have plenty of time to get by here during the holidays. Hopefully people keep bringing it anyways even after Wednesday. So it works great for us too.”

HAS will be accepting donations next week, though they are closed for the Thanksgiving holidays from November 25-27.

McBride says donations can also be made online by purchasing items on Amazon to be sent to the shelter.
