Mineola animal shelter seeks holiday donations


Don’t forget the animals during the holiday season. Donations for the APET-SPCA Center in Mineola are needed.

JK Business Services at 304 N. Main Street in Quitman is accepting donations to be taken to the Mineola facility.

Some of the things needed for the animals are laundry detergent and dryer sheets, scoopable kitty litter, paper towels, hand sanitizer, old bathmats, pet beds for larger dogs, blankets (no fringe or knitted ones or anything with zippers), dog and cat carriers, all manner of food (wet, dry, cat, dog, puppy and kitten), leashes and collars, puppy pads and food and water bowls.

On their wish list are also varieties and sizes of harnesses, raised food and water bowls for senior dogs, and possible gift cards for gas stations to fill up the adoption RV.

You can always donate money, and also important is to make a donation of your time and volunteer. Volunteers are needed to work one four-hour shift a month or even more if interested. For information call 903-569-1250 or 903-569-0505.
