Hurricane Relief: Donation Drive for the Pets of Puerto Rico
Equipaws Pet Services has joined with several pet care companies in Miami to collect donations for the pets of Puerto Rico after the devastating hurricanes wiped out the island’s infrastructure.
We will be dividing donations between two rescues. They will be picking up the donations themselves which is key:
1) Santuario de Animales San Francisco de Asís, Inc.
2) El Foster Club.
All donations can be brought to our South Miami office with the bar codes blacked out. All donations need to be boxed and labeled “Donations.” The rescues in Puerto Rico are asking for cages, crates, food, medicine, bedding, etc.
If you purchase food and supplies they will be taken to Puerto Rico to those two contacts. Take a look at this list for ideas: https://www.amazon.com/…/1TQQQATXAQ2…/ref=cm_sw_em_r_d_g__wb
Anything you order on this list will be shipped to our mailbox.
How to drop off donations:
You can drop off donations physically at our South Miami office, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., from Monday through Saturday. If we are not in (pups must be walked!), please leave the donation at our door.
