Got Towels?

Hello! I've been out of the country for two weeks, in places so remote that running water and electricity aren't always a sure thing. (More on that later, I promise.)
But now I'm back, and today while out walking one of my pugs, I found four big, fat towels stuffed into a trash can. This drives me crazy! Why do people throw out perfectly good stuff? Things don't have to be spotless to still be of use. Towels are a perfect example. 


Every animal shelter in the nation needs terrycloth towels, for bathing and drying the animals, and for snuggling around the little ones. (Although that bottom towel in the pile is big enough to dry off a Great Dane, I swear.)
I took the towels home to launder them. Then off to my local animal shelter they'll go. 


It's odd, but just today I received a message from the shelter, asking for things it needs that people can donate and/or buy. 


Look at the list, below. Do you have anything you could donate to your local shelter?

Towels and blankets and sheets
Newspapers
Stainless steel bowls of all sizes
Ceramic crocksPlastic or stainless steel litter pans (all sizes)
Dog and cat treats (hard and soft)
Dog and cat toys(including washable stuffed toys)
Guinea pig, hamster, gerbil food & cages
Hay (timothy or oat)
Cat scratching posts
Baby wipes
Potty-training pads
Heating pads
Dog and cat carriers
Baby bottles (newborn) and kitten bottles
Pacifiers
Fabric softener sheets
Dog and cat groom supplies
Shampoo, conditioner, brushes, clippers
Hand soap & sanitizer

(Pacifiers! Who knew?)










Apparently somebody did.
