North County Supports Animals

x_petdrive3The 5th Annual Donation Drive for Animals was a chance for the North County community to come together, celebrate their furry friends, and make a difference in the lives of local animals. The week-long December donation drive was presented by the ASPCA and Assemblymember Brian Maienschein, with donation drop-offs at Kahoots pet store locations in Poway, Rancho Bernardo, and Rancho Peñasquitos.

The week began with a kickoff event at Kahoots Poway, with adoptable dogs and cats, donation drop-offs, and a chance to meet Assemblymember Maienschein and representatives from the ASPCA.


Donations benefited the San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) and PAWS San Diego.

PAWS San Diego is an SDHS program that helps loving pet owners keep and care for their pets during difficult economic situations. PAWS San Diego services include food, supplies, and medical care.
