Stuff the Bus to Help Needy Pets with MOAS

Stuff the Bus to Help Needy Pets with MOAS

  • Madison-Oglethorpe Animal Shelter (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

At MOAS we are constantly working to improve the lives of needy pets, whether that be shelter pets or animals in our community. We run a community pet food bank for families who need a little help to take care of their animals, especially those who have suddenly fallen on hard times. Our shelter animals themselves often have a diverse array of needs. Some of them have never seen a toy before in their lives; some need special foods to help them with weight loss, dental issues, diabetes, and urinary problems; and some just need a soft bed to lie on. Donations of new or gently used items from generous members of the community help us meet these needs and many more. 

So we're hoping that you'll help us Stuff the Bus this holiday season to help make a difference in the lives of animals in our community. Yes - we have our large transport RV, and we want to fill it full with all sorts of donations, and we need your help to do it! Please bring any pet supplies in good condition to our shelter to help us fill it up until our Santa Paws event on December 8, 2018. That can include pet beds, crates, towels, sheets, cleaning supplies, pet food, treats, toys, rawhides, carriers, bowls, blankets, harnesses, leashes, collars, cat scratchers and trees, nail clippers, pet clothing, shredded paper, brushes, paper towels, litter pans and scoops, and more! What we need most at the moment is canned and dry kitten food, cat litter, and bleach (we go through a LOT of bleach!). Anything that we may not be able to use at the shelter can help our community food bank and our foster homes.

Family Volunteer Day - Fall Cleaning Edition

You've heard of Spring Cleaning - well at the shelter, we're so busy that we need help with Fall Cleaning too! So we're back with our very popular Family Volunteer Day series this Sunday to tackle all sorts of projects at the shelter, all of which are designed so that there's something for volunteers of all ages to help with. This Sunday we'll be cleaning up from the end of our Yard Sale, taking down our Halloween decorations, and most likely replacing them with more holiday decorations for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. Now that the weather is cooler, we're going to do some cleaning and organizing of the items in our outside storage shed and possibly our attic (no volunteers will be asked to get into our attic though - staff and board members will handle that part). We'll also be bathing pups indoors to help increase their chances of being adopted while also working on normal things like training and socialization. 

Come on out and help us - you can snag some great last minute deals at the yard sale before we get started, and we promise you'll have a really fun time volunteering with us!

We also need donations of gently used items (please no clothing or broken/damaged items!). They can be dropped off at the shelter 12-5pm Wednesday - Sunday from now until Nov. 1st. We will also need lots of volunteers to help at the event and to help us sort and price items in advance. Please let us know if you’re interested in volunteering, and help us spread the word!
