The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office animal control division invites area schools to participate in the first annual Caps for Critters Days, with all proceeds and donations going to benefit the Lincoln County Animal Shelter.
From Monday, March 5 through Friday, March 30, animal control officers are taking donations for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter at Lincoln County area schools. Each school will have a different Caps for Critters Day, and on the day a particular school is scheduled, any student or faculty member who brings in a donation will get a paw print stamp on their hand by one of the animal control officers that allows them to bring and wear a hat in school for the day.
Here is the shelter’s wish list:
Bleach (no splashless bleach, please), Duct tape, zip ties, gallon-size Ziploc bags, noncoated paper plates (no Styrofoam, please), paper bags, tall kitchen, 30-gallon, and 60-gallon trash bags, white copy paper, liquid laundry soap, Dawn dish soap, dishwasher soap, wet cat and dog food, dry cat and dog food, kitten and cat treats, catnip, cat and dog toys, dog treats, rawhides, peanut butter, Kong dog and cat toys, paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, kitten milk replacer, forever postage stamps, towels and washcloths, Flea and tick medications (no house treatment items or flea collars), novel scents (cinnamon, food extracts, sage, peppermint, lavender, mint, various room sprays), any monetary donations must be in check form and made out to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter.
When all donations are collected, an announcement will be made in The Lincoln County News and on the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page with the total donation numbers.
To participate, contact ACO Candace Wall to set up a date for a particular school via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 350-5482
The Lincoln County Shelter is an amazing resource for hundreds of animals a year to find safety, medical care, and, hopefully, a forever home.
