Fido and Fluffy need Christmas gifts this year, too, particularly if you care about helping homeless animals.
The Erie County Humane Society is back this year with its Christmas stocking program. For $18, the pet owner gets a stocking stuffed with toys and treats. I've gotten stockings in past years for our cat, Coco, and I can guarantee the stockings are full. The person at the Humane Society taking your order will ask about your pet's size and preferences.
To order one, call the shelter at 419-626-6220. Stockings are available for pickup at the shelter Dec. 14-24. The shelter is located at 1911 Superior St. Stockings can be shipped out of state.
The local Humane Society doesn't get any tax funds from the government, so fundraising efforts such as the stockings are what keeps it in business to help animals.
