College of Veterinary Medicine Collecting Supplies for Animals May 14

Date: 5/6/2011 10:29 am

The tornadoes that ripped through Alabama left many family pets homeless. Animal humane shelters in north and west Alabama are overwhelmed and need help until families and animals can be reunited.

The College of Veterinary Medicine is asking the community to help fill a truck with needed supplies on Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the parking lot of the college located at 1130 Wire Road.  The supplies will be distributed among the animal shelters.

Items urgently needed include: pet food, cat litter and trays, water and food bowls, collars and leashes, dog crates, non-medicated shampoo, bleach, paper towels, towels, bedding, horse feed, hay, chicken feed, and fencing materials.

For a complete list of items, visit the College of Veterinary Medicine website at
