Logan's Birthday Idea

(updated, see end of post)

My son is turning 7 years old soon, and he has decided to ask all his friends to help him do something different for his birthday.  He is starting a donation drive for the local Animal Shelter.  I am very proud of his idea and wanted to share it with you.

Logan's bedroom is full up on toys and games, so we asked him what he'd want to do instead. Earlier this year, our next door neighbor adopted this handsome dog Django Reinhardt from the shelter. Also, Logan and Susan recently visited the shelter to donate old towels and meet the animals. So, instead of giving him a present for his birthday, he's asking for his friends to help in putting together a big care package for the dogs and cats at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter.

The shelter says that they can always use the following items:

• Cat treats

• Dog treats

• Canned food (no dry food, please)

• Cat toys

• Dog toys

• Peanut butter to put in KONG toys for dogs

• Used blankets

• Used towels

• Donations to the shelter's emergency medical fund  (make checks payable to Friends for Life Animal Rescue and send them to PO Box 962 Eureka, CA 95502 or donate online at www.dogrescuers.org)

Update #1

The donation drive for the local Animal Shelter was a great success!  Here is a photo of Logan with all the great items that were donated at his party. In addition to what you see in the picture, there is a whole bin of towels, and $50 in cash! 

Update #2

Here is Logan helping to deliver the donations to the shelter, and getting a VIP tour of the animals!
