The Humane Society of Huron Valley (HSHV) graciously let us film some of their furry friends for our CYS promos and badge videos.  To return the favor we are asking that you help us support the cuddly animals of HSHV by donating to our Wish List drive.  We will have a receiving box near the entrance of the library and will accept donations starting on Thursday, July 17 through the end of the day on Friday, August 1. 

Top items requested by HSHV are:
  • Gently used bath towels, small blankets, and small pet beds that can be washed.
  • Dog and cat food in the original unopened bag within 3 months after the expiration date.
  • Dog and cat food in the original opened bag within 3 months after the expiration date, providing it is free of bugs or rodent waste.

But that is only the tip of the iceberg of the many items that help HVHS care for their residents.  For more donation ideas, please visit their website for a complete wish list of items.
