Animals need their stockings stuffed too.
The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) is inviting supporters out on Thursday, Dec. 24, to donate to cats, dogs, and other pets at the facility.
“You can participate in person or remain physically distant while helping to fill the AWLA van with holiday goodies that will keep homeless animals entertained all year long!” the AWLA said.
Items can be delivered to the AWLA from an online list, which will be used to stuff the van. Participants can also sign up “in-pawson” for a 10 minute window to stuff the van full of goodies.
“Sign up for a 10-minute window during which you and your ‘family group’ can come by the AWLA to stuff the van with the help of an ‘AWLA elf’ and meet an adoptable animal who will benefit from your generous holiday donations,” the AWLA said. “All activities will be held outside the AWLA in our parking lot, and all participants must wear masks. (Please note that for safety reasons, participants will not be able to enter the building). Two different family groups will have time to visit with an adoptable animal and stuff the van during each 10-minute window, all while staying at a safe physical distance from each other.”
