Holiday Supply Drive
Let’s make a difference. Together.
The holiday season is a joyous time of year for so many reasons. With snow falling, family visiting and for some a break from work – what’s not to love!?
Unfortunately, the holiday season is a busy time for animal shelters and rescues as animals are pulled in from the cold. It’s a sad truth that not every pet will have a loving home this season.
We want to help!
RCO Pet Care is so excited to be holding our 2nd Annual Holiday Pet Supply Drive benefiting three very deserving local non-profit rescues. We have curated a list of their most needed items and put them together to share with our friends, clients and community to help make a difference this holiday season.
Who They Are
Brass City Rescue Alliance
“We aim to get as many dogs adopted as possible via our rescue. We have our own shelter and also a few foster homes, where our dogs stay prior to placement.
We provide veterinary care, behavioral assessments and training to make each animal successful in its new forever home. We network for dogs at local shelters and lend a hand to our rescue friends whenever we can.”
Ridgefield Operation for Animal Rescue (ROAR)
Although not a part of our service area, the ROAR chapter of Pets for Vets has been an enormous supporter of our business and does amazing things for veterans in the area. We thought this would be a great way to give back!
“ROAR was founded on the simple principle that we would provide animals in need with the same love, care and compassion we show our own family pets. Since we opened our doors in 2005, we have placed more than 5,000 neglected and unwanted cats and dogs in caring homes throughout Ridgefield and our surrounding towns.
But our mission does not end at our shelter’s door. ROAR’s staff and volunteers are also committed to enhancing the remarkable bond between people and pets through our education and outreach programs, sharing information about the rewards of adopting a pet, responsibilities of pet ownership, and working with student groups in developing ways to “give back” to animals in need.”
