PET PANGAEA News:
Pet Pangaea at 158 Central Park Square in downtown Los Alamos is acting as a collection point for donations for the animal victims of the Oklahoma tornado disaster.
New Mexico Dogs Deserve Better (NMDDB) is coordinating the effort with a truck going to Oklahoma City Tuesday, May 28. Pet Pangaea is donating a number of crates and $300 for gas for the truck.
To donate any of the supplies listed below, drop the items off anytime Pet Pangaea is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Also, donations can be handled by purchasing items over the phone at 505-661-1010. Just tell Pet Pangaea what the donation budget is and they’ll get items off the list below. Any purchases made at Pet Pangaea for donation will be 10 percent off.
The truck will come by Pet Pangaea to pick up donated items Sunday but because there is no exact time, it would be very helpful if all items are donated by Saturday. That also allows Pet Pangaea time to sort and organize items for the donation truck.
