Support for the County’s furry friends begins this weekend. Picton’s Pet Valu staff will be asking citizens to ‘Lend a paw to help homeless pets in need.’

“This is the month that we collect donations of product and funds to help support the Loyalist Humane Society and PEC Canine Control,” said Tricia Daley, owner of Pet Valu Picton. “All the funds stay in Prince Edward County.

Last year, thanks to the generosity of its customers, the Picton store raised more than $9,000 for the two animal charities – placing the store second in Canada.

“Quite a feat for our little community,” said Daley. “This year we are hoping for the number one position of the 500 stores in the chain. This year, we’ve set a store fundraising goal of $10,000 to help even more local homeless pets.”

Supporters are asked to buy a paper paw, adopt a pet or donate pet food or supplies at Pet Valu, in the Sobey’s Plaza.

Now in its fifth year, Pet Valu Pet Appreciation Month raises money and supplies to support abandoned, homeless and abused animals in communities across Canada.
