Islip Animal Shelter's Pet Toy Drive Raises Outstanding Amount of Donations for Homeless Pets

Posted by livelovebarkdogrescue on December 15, 2015 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (1)

December 14, 2015 - Bay Shore, NY – The Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center recently hosted its Fourth Annual Holiday Pet Toy Drive, sponsored by the shelter’s volunteer group, Live.Love.Bark, which was successful in collecting more than 700 gallons of toys for dogs and cats. This year’s donations again surpassed the amount collected in previous years. Families across Long Island and even out of state made the trip to donate at the Shelter’s annual fundraiser which was held on Saturday, December 12, to place treats and toys in the 100+ holiday stockings that hung on each animal’s cage.

 

In addition to toys and treats, nearly 1000 pounds of pet food, an abundance of dog bone boxes, and an impressive amount of laundry detergent, dish soap, hand sanitizer, towels, blankets, beds and sheets were also donated this holiday season. Various supporters and local companies also co-sponsored the event while others donated items or baskets to raffle at Toy Drive, while Live.Love.Bark sold merchandise including both human and pet clothing and 2016 calendars that brought in more than $2000.00, which will be used towards the well-being and care of the 100+ adoptable animals that currently reside at the shelter.

 

The Annual Holiday Toy Drive was started in 2012, with the donation of holiday stockings for each animal at the shelter. Now sponsored by Live.Love.Bark, the event has tripled in size, collecting much more than just toy donations. In its first year, the Toy Drive saw approximately 50 people visit the shelter to support the effort, whereas this year, over 300 supporters walked the halls, stuffing the stockings and visiting with the animals.

 

To view photographs from this event, taken by Live.Love.Bark volunteer Leon Gurinsky, please visit Live.Love.Bark’s Facebook page. To donate items, please drop off donations at the shelter between 9:30 am and 3:30 pm, Monday through Saturday, at 210 South Denver Ave. in Bay Shore.

2014 Annual Holiday Toy Drive at Islip Animal Shelter Another Great Success

Posted by livelovebarkdogrescue on December 30, 2014 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

The Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center recently hosted its third Annual Holiday Toy Drive, sponsored by the shelter’s volunteer group, Live.Love.Bark, which was successful in collecting more than 300 gallons of toys for dogs, cats and two rabbits. This year’s donations far surpassed the amount collected in previous years. Families across Long Island stopped by the Shelter’s annual Toy Drive which was held on Saturday, December 13, to place treats and toys in the 90+ holiday stockings that hang on each animal’s cage.

In addition to toys and treats, nearly 700 pounds of pet food, an abundance of dog bone boxes, and an impressive amount of collars, leashes, laundry detergent, dish soap, towels, blankets, and sheets were also donated. Various supporters and local companies also donated items or baskets to raffle at Toy Drive, while Live.Love.Bark sold merchandise including shirts, sweatshirts, and 2015 calendars that brought in more than $1600.00, which will be used towards the health and care of the nearly 100 adoptable animals that reside at the shelter.

 

 

“This event has gotten bigger and better every year, and it is encouraging to see so many people, residents and non-residents from all over Long Island, coming down to our shelter to make a difference,” said Councilwoman Trish Bergin Weichbrodt.

 

During the four-hour fundraiser, one cat was adopted and eight adoption applications for dogs were filed. Six of those eight have already been approved. Those pets will be going to their new forever homes sometime before the holidays.

 

“The most important thing about these fundraisers is that they raise awareness and encourage people to go down to the shelter and adopt an animal. Each animal there deserves a home, especially for the holidays, and it’s thanks to all these donations that they’re able to be happy and spoiled while they wait for that home,” noted Town Clerk Olga Murray

 

The Annual Holiday Toy Drive was started in 2012, with the donation of holiday stockings for each animal at the shelter. Now sponsored by Live.Love.Bark, the event has tripled in size, collecting much more than just toy donations. In its first year, the Toy Drive saw approximately 50 people visit the shelter to support the effort, whereas this year, nearly 200 families walked the halls, stuffing the stockings and visiting with the animals.
