Cleveland APL program to hold a “Give Back Day” for clients in need on Wednesday, December 23rd

CLEVELAND, OH (December 21, 2015) – The Cleveland Animal Protective League’s project CARE (Community Animal Retention Effort), an outreach support service for pet-owning residents in a targeted area of Cleveland, will hold its’ third annual holiday “Give Back Day” on Wednesday, December 23rd.  Project CARE’s goal is to help preserve the human-animal bond by keeping pets with families who love them.

On this special day, the APL’s volunteers, led by project CARE Manager Becca Britton, will put on their Santa hats and pack their cars with pet supplies to distribute to more than 30 project CARE clients in need of some extra help this holiday season. Supplies that will be donated include dog and cat food, treats, toys, and blankets. Each client will also be given a holiday card and treats.

“Project CARE is an example of the Cleveland APL’s leadership in implementing innovative programs that help both animals and the people who love them by keeping them together,” said Sharon Harvey, President and CEO of the Cleveland APL.  “Give Back Day is our way of celebrating the importance of pets in our families and providing them with a little extra holiday joy.”

Becca and her team will leave the Cleveland APL’s Tremont location to distribute the items on Wednesday, December 23rd, beginning at noon and will be out in the community making donation deliveries for at least 2 to 3 hours.
