Brown Bag Supply Drive

Now through December 31

Our second annual Brown Bag is happening now! The animals of HSCA have made a wish list, and they are asking the public to help by collecting the much-needed items on the list from neighbors and friends throughout the month of November. This is a great project for children and fun for adults too!

You can pick up a brown bag with an attached donation list at the adoption center or click here to print a list and attach it to your own brown paper bag. Please return the brown bags with donations to the shelter by the end of the month.

For more information, contact the adoption center at 219.922.3811.
