Now through Sunday, September 3, Treats Unleashed is running a pet food drive benefitting Five Acres! During the drive, every pound of food donated at any Treats Unleashed location will be matched, up to 5000 pounds worth! Look for the collection bins at area Treats Unleashed stores to make your donation.
The food drive will help us maintain our AniMeals pet food pantry program. In just the first seven months of 2023, we have distributed 22,700 pounds of free cat and dog food, feeding 1,307 animals and serving 500 pet owners. This is a 45% increase in pounds distributed compared to the same period of time in 2022.
Donations will also help us provide pet food to our partner Whiskers on Wheels to support Aging Ahead's Meals on Wheels' recipients in St. Charles and O'Fallon, MO.
We could not continue to fulfill our mission without the help of businesses like Treats Unleashed and without you! Thank you to Treats Unleashed and to all of you who will be donating!
Meet Mojo Jojo, Mumble, and Hubba Bubba! These three handsome fellas came to us from the City of St. Charles Shelter, one of our most frequent transfer partners, and they are all ready to find their forever home!
Mojo Jojo is an eight-year-old male who was surrendered by their owner who was experiencing health issues and could no longer care for him. He has lived with children and cats before.
Mumble is a two-year-old male who is very affectionate and has the prettiest markings!
Hubba Bubba is a four-year-old male who reportedly has done well with dogs and kittens.
Come meet these lads this weekend from 12:00 - 6:00!
It's pretty obvious that Kenzie has the tallest ears in the shelter. What you can't tell from pictures alone is just how big her heart is
This blonde bombshell has been with us for just about 6 weeks. For a sensitive dog who previously lived in a home, that's 6 weeks too many. In her previous home, Kenzie was crate- and housetrained, cuddly, and loved to play ball in the back yard. When she arrived at our shelter, she was very shut down, and it took about a week for our staff to help her understand that she was safe.
Kenzie has continued to gain confidence at the shelter but there's only so much we can do to make her feel comfortable. She is top priority to move out of the shelter into a foster or adoptive home. Her ideal placement is one or two adults in a relatively quiet setting. Our Canine Team members are trying to find a dog friend for Kenzie, but so far, she's shown that she may do best as the only dog in the home.
She is around 3 years old and weighs 51 pounds.
