Help Pets in Need During 31 Days of Love

During the month of October, Cumberland County Public Library & Information Center, in partnership with radio station 91.9 WFSS, is accepting donations of pet supplies for animals that are sheltered at the Cumberland County Department of Animal Control. Donations may include: pet food, cat litter, toys, flea-control products, treats, shampoo, plastic crates and carriers. No newspapers, please. Bring items to any of the library's eight locations.
The library is also collecting pet stories and photos to share during the month of October. Pet owners, tell us how your pet made it into your life by emailing your brief pet stories and a photo to ShelterPetAdoption@outlook.com. Also, since Halloween is coming up, if you have a photo of your pet in costume, send it in to join our virtual pet parade. View our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CumberlandCountyPublicLibrary) to see the online display.
Each library branch is also celebrating 31 Days of Love with pet-related programs, including movies about pets, pet training programs, cat toy craft programs and even adoption events at East Regional and Hope Mills branches. Registration and more information available online.
