Donate to the Animal Management Care Centre’s toy drive to help our furry friends this Christmas. Donate pet toys so the less fortunate cats and dogs can enjoy Christmas without a family.
Some pets don’t have the luxury of waking up Christmas morning and chewing on wrapping paper or eating the scraps from Christmas lunch. This holiday season when your buying gifts for your family and friends or donating food or cash to the multiple charities across Brisbane, spare a thought for our furry friends who deserve gifts as well.
The Animal Management Centre is home to many cats and dogs that are looking for a home. Across Brisbane many animals are looking for a Christmas Miracle, if you can’t adopt one of these cute animals why not donate some fun pet toys to their animal toy drive to brighten up their Christmas? Toys are important for numerous reasons around the Centre, they make the animals feel at home and they help the volunteers interact with their furry friends.
Animals and City Standards Committee Chairperson, Councillor Graham Able (Division 5), emphasized the importance of a variety of pet toys is important so all animals are taken care of.
“While Council supplies Kong toys and ice treats for all sale cats and dogs, some animals like tennis ball while others prefer a squeaky toy to play with.”
We all know how fussy some pets can be, you can buy the shiniest squeakiest pet toy on the market but Fido won’t even look at it because he is still chewing on the soggy tennis ball that is falling apart. This is why the Animal Care Centre is calling on the Brisbane community to donate interactive animal toys ( Kongs, tennis balls, squeaky toys). The toys can even be second hand as long as they are still in good usable condition. However they do not need any plush toys as these can create disease management issues.
So take your donations to the Animal Management Centre any time during opening hours between now and Christmas, so our furry friends have some presents on Christmas morning even if they don’t have a family to share them with.
Animal Management Care Centre – 213 Queens Road, Kingston.
Open Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm and Saturday 9am to 2pm
You can contact the Centre on 07 3142 5397.
