    Greetings everyone! We wanted to make you aware of a wonderful opportunity to help the community and an organization that has been hit hard by the economic times. April is Prevention of Animal Cruelty Month and to raise awareness A Pet's Place will be putting on a few events:

    -Elliott Serrano from the Chicago Anti-cruelty Society will be here April 23rd at noon to talk about the link between domestic violence and animal abuse.  So mark your calenders now! 

    -We will be collecting items needed by the local domestic violence shelter A Woman's Place.  They currently are in need of large bath towels, twin sheets and utensils.  They would also appreciate anything else you may be able to donate. 

    -Lastly, we will be having our annual cell phone drive this month.  Drop off any old cell phone you may have! They will be wiped and reprogrammed so the women at the shelter can use them in emergencies.

    The boxes for the donation items and cell phones will be under the first and second year mailboxes in BSB, outside of LAC 100 and outside of the Dean's office on the third floor of BSB.  Please take time to donate an item and show the community that you care!
