Greetings, y’all. I just received the following alert from Spay & Neuter Kansas City in my inbox. As you may have already gathered from the post title, SNKC is holding a garage sale this August in order to raise funds for its local animal rescue activities, which include low-cost veterinary services, including dog and cat sterilization and vaccinations; educating animal guardians about proper animal companion care; and holding food drives and maintaining a food bank to benefit lower-income animal guardians. To learn more about SNKC, check out its website at http://snkc.net.
Please keep reading to see how you can help out with SNKC’s forthcoming garage sale, and contact Tamara at SNKC for additional details. Additionally, SNKC is always in need of volunteers, for example, to help out with its spay and neuter clinics. You can keep up-to-date with SNKC’s events and volunteer needs by joining its mailing list (go to http://snkc.net; sign-up is in the right-hand sidebar) or by following SNKC on Facebook or Twitter.
Finally, I’ve noticed a few offers of unwanted dog and cat food on the Kansas City Freecycle list in the past week or two. Should you find yourself with excess food (or other dog and cat supplies), please consider donating it to SNKC’s food bank. My husband dropped off a few bags of dog food last week, and reported back that the bank is running dangerously low on food. You can find out more about the program here: http://snkc.net/index.php/donate and here: http://snkc.net/index.php/snkc-pet-services/snkc-pet-outreach-program.

Spay & Neuter Kansas City will be hosting a garage sale on Saturday, Aug. 7th, 2010.
Can you help?
We are seeking URBAN MINERS to find unused and forgotten household items and donate them to SNKC for the garage sale. Items may be dropped off at the clinic during normal business hours (M-F, 8-5 and S, 9-12) or you may contact Tamara via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. We will be accepting donations through July 17th.
We are also interested in volunteers who are garage sale gurus and can help us make this a HUGE success. Volunteers will be needed to help sort, price and display items and man the sale. Again, contact email@example.com for more info or to sign up today!
