Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 13-14, are Amazon Prime Day. The online retailer will offer large discounts to Prime customers to kick off the holiday shopping season. Since it’s the first holiday shopping season in the age of COVID, a huge response is expected.
This is a unique and convenient way for Animal Ark supporters to donate to our shelter and get a head start on holiday shopping. By going thru Amazon Smile and choosing Friends of Animal Adoptions as your charity, every Amazon purchase results in a small donation to our No-kill mission. This is a wonderful giving opportunity provided by Amazon. Last quarter alone this resulted in over $400 in donations which goes a long way toward providing food, shelter and medical care to Special Need Pets like Yoda, pictured below.
Yoda came to our shelter suffering from seizures and ringworm. Animal Ark provided the medical care Yoda needed. His seizures and ringworm disappeared; unfortunately, the seizures caused irreversible damage to Yoda’s optic nerve. He is blind but you’d never know it from his behavior and attitude. Yoda plays and cuddles like any other cat and gets along great with people, dogs, and other cats. He’ll soon be available for adoption! Keep an eye on our website or call us at 651-772-8983 if you’re interested in giving Yoda, or any of our other eligible cats and dogs, a forever home in time for the holidays!
