It’s wonderful when young animal lovers step up to make a difference for pets in their community. These two young ladies, MeriKate and Carmen, recently took it upon themselves to schedule a food drive for local pets. They contacted Tractor Supply in Monroe for permission to set up at the store, made signs advertising their goals, and then worked the store crowd on a Saturday afternoon. Their amazing results: over 400 lbs of dog food donated, nearly 300 lbs of cat food, along with miscellaneous boxes of snacks and treatments. They also received nearly $100 in cash donations!
We’re very grateful for the hard work and initiative shown by these amazing girls, and appreciate their parents support of MeriKate and Carmen in their efforts. We certainly hope to see more of these enthusiastic animal lovers in the future!
