AnimalPalooza is holding its first annual food, toy, and fund drive Nov. 16 through Dec. 6 to benefit 18 animal shelters and rescues in Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky during a historically slow season of giving for these nonprofit organizations.
Donations may be placed in collection boxes throughout Evansville and the surrounding area. Animal shelters and rescue facilities are always in need of pet food, toys, bedding, Dawn dish washing liquid, paper towels and bleach, among many other items. Find a full listing of needed items at animalpalooza.net. Monetary donations also are needed, and may be made online at AnimalPalooza website.
The Santa Paws event will conclude with a celebration Dec. 6 at Lamasco Bar & Grill on West Franklin Street. The event will feature popular local bands, food, door prizes, and family fun from 2 to 7 p.m.
