The following information was provided by The City of Tallahassee:
Most pet owners are responsible, but many may be unaware that local law requires pet owners to provide proper shelter for their pets. To raise public awareness, Leon High School Anchor Club and John Paul II High School students are partnering with Pets Ad Litem (PAL) at a unique event to benefit animals and their humans.
Students will build “Condos for Canines” at the Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center (ASC) as part of National Make A Difference Day. The doghouses will be donated to those unable to afford shelter for their dogs and will be distributed by the City’s Animal Control Officers to those most in need, allowing dogs to stay with their owners. LFR Inc., an environmental consulting firm, is providing the doghouse materials.
Students are also bringing pet food to donate to the ASC and will conduct a dog wash that is open to the community ($5 suggested donation per dog).
WHEN:Saturday, October 24, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
WHO:Pets Ad Litem volunteers, ASC staff, students from Leon and John Paul II high schools
WHERE: Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center, 1125 Easterwood Drive (next to Tom Brown Park)
