Florence, Ala. (WHNT) -   The end of the year is a hard time for animal shelters, people get busy and funds start to run short.

Coiffure at 108  in downtown Florence is hoping to ease the burden. They're working to stuff their window full of donations for the animal shelter. It's a window dressing for a cause.

"We decided that since we didn't get to the mall to pick up an angel and take a family on, we decided to that we wanted to take the family of the Florence-Lauderdale pet shelter," said John Walls, owner of the salon.

Walls said they start to see the hardship at the shelter in December, that's when the year's funds are almost out until the new year.

"There's been several times this year that they've run out of food and stuff," he said. "We've already had to pull the window and give stuff to them already."

They'll take whatever you can spare - clorox, laundry detergent, towels - and they'll add it to the window.

"Anything that they would use at the shelter, used collars, leashes. We just want to fill it up and help the animals out for Christmas."

Although they had hoped to stuff the window by Christmas, Walls and his crew will be accepting donations through New Year's Day.

The shop is on Tuscaloosa Street, right off Court Street in downtown Florence.
