Pet Pantries, a not-for-profit corporation based in Easton, will hold a series of raffles at their booth at this year’s Oxford Day celebration to further their mission of providing pet food to three area shelters and to individual pet owners.
This year’s Oxford Day, an all-day family celebration held in the historic Eastern Shore town, will take place on Saturday, April 28th, rain or shine. The Pet Pantries’ booth will feature several raffle items including two beautiful planters filled with dwarf English Boxwood and annuals, original framed photographs, and an original painting by well-known folk artist Danny Doughty. (Note that all of these items would make perfect gits for Mother’s Day — support a good cause and wrap up your Mother’s Day shopping!) Participants in the raffle will choose the items they want by putting their tickets in the doggie bowl in front of the item; winners will be announced at 1 PM — so get there early!
Look for Pet Pantries’ pet food drives on community calendars, follow them on Facebook, and keep track of their latest innovative fund raising events through local media.
About Pet Pantries
The Pet Pantries’ mission is to keep the much-needed pantries of the Caroline, Dorchester, and Talbot Humane shelters full throughout the year. Believing that no pet should go hungry, a small group of volunteers organized Pet Pantries to ensure that the tri-County shelters have enough pet food to distribute in their communities. Families who need assistance feeding their pets can receive pet food from the shelters’ pet food pantries.
The organization’s goal is to keep the pet food pantries stocked so that no one will be turned away. Support from local citizens and businesses guarantees that this goal will be met. Donations can be made at the Pet Pantries booth on Oxford Day or at the donation page on the Pet Pantries Web site (www.PetPantries.org). Volunteers are needed and cheerfully welcomed!
