NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Your old security blanket could make all the difference to a homeless pet!

Animal Care & Control of New York is seeking donations of unwanted blankets and towels to comfort the cats, dogs and rabbits in the city animal shelters.

1010 WINS Susan Richard Reports:

“We’re preparing for another really difficult summer,” says AC&C Executive Director Julie Bank, who tells 1010 WINS that the warm weather is when they see not only more strays coming into the shelters, but also litters of unwanted puppies and kittens.

“They don’t care if a towel is ugly or has an old print on it or even if there’s a stain,” Bank added, “So if you’re looking to do any kind of spring cleaning, Animal Care & Control would love to take the leftovers that you have, because it will make the animals’ day that much brighter.”

All donations will be accepted, but laundered towels and blankets are preferred, so that AC&C won’t have to bear the expense of washing the items before use.
