Lee County Animal Services is in need of large towels and blankets for the shelter animals. Towels and blankets are used for the animals' care and comfort in their kennels and for post surgery care. Animal Services takes in approximately 800 animals each month so maintaining a large supply of linens is crucial. Items do not need to be new.
Anyone interested in donating towels, blankets, or other items such cat litter, bleach, paper towels, or pet food for Animal Services' Community Pet Pantry, may bring them to the shelter Monday through Saturday during business hours or drop them off at the front door after hours. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
Donations may also be dropped off at many Publix Supermarket locations throughout Lee County. Look for the blue bins with Animal Services' signs.
