NEIGHBORLY, PET-CENTRIC Okemos, Michigan Team Has a Ball Helping Out a Local Shelter

Team leader Charla from the Okemos, Michigan pet center reached out to tell us about a community effort she and her team found particularly rewarding.  She told us that she and her team were excited about the 1,000 tennis balls they donated to the Capital Area Humane Society, one of their in-store adoption partners.  All of Okemos' neighbors made this possible by purchasing tennis balls at the register to benefit CAHS.

Blaze, right before he found out all the tennis
balls and all the treats were not for him...
The Capital Area Humane Society was equally grateful to see members of the community come out to help their dogs in need.  In a Facebook post shortly after CAHS picked up their boxes of goodies, they wrote:

On behalf of all the CAHS staff and volunteers (and animals), Blaze would like to say thank you to the Pet Supplies Plus store in Okemos for collecting and donating 1,000 tennis balls for the dogs and puppies in our care!  Several treats were also donated, which Blaze gladly helped himself to after this photo.  Thank you, Pet Supplies Plus, for all that you do for promoting adoption, and supporting our organization! 

Charla and the whole Okemos team executed a very neighborly, pet-centric effort with their neighbors, and in doing so they boosted a community organization.  Great way to get involved!
