There's still time to donate to Presents 4 Pets campaign

Mandy Oram of Paws and Kisses Pet Sitting Service in Shelton is organizing the 2014 Presents 4 Pets campaign in southern Connecticut to benefit homeless animals in the community.

The event is held in support of National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week from Nov. 2 to 8.

Professional pet-sitters across the country sponsor local campaigns in coordination with the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters.

Pet-care items are collected to help keep animal shelters. Needed are pet food, treats, toys, blankets, towels, rugs, beds, leashes, collars and cat litter.

A donation box during business hours is at the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce office, 10 Progress Drive, Shelton. Go to for details.
