Giving Tuesday is All About Enrichment!

GAHS feline alum Primrose gave us a call a few weeks ago.  She heard that across the country, kennels are full and homeless pets are sitting in shelters longer than ever as they await their forever home.  And sadly, the needy pets at the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society are no exception.

So, Primrose has teamed up with Popeye [who has been at the shelter for over a year!], and the team at the shelter, to raise funds during this very special day of giving to help keep our animals’ days interesting!  Enrichment is just as essential to our animals as nutrition and veterinary care.  And the cost of the supplies to meet our animals’ physical, behavioral, and emotional needs adds up quickly! We hope you will join us on November 28th, via our social media outlets, and learn how our dynamic team keeps our residents’ brains working and tails wagging.  Plus, you will learn some enrichment practices that you can do with your very own pet on a snowy winter day! 

Primrose even convinced her parents to make the first gift- one that will match the first $2500 donated!!
