September Emphasis


West Haven Animal Shelter

The Mission Emphasis for the month of September is West Haven Animal Shelter.

The contributions from this month will be given in memory of Gert Beckwith. Her love of cats is well known to those who knew her. The Animal Shelter, although closed during COVID, is still attended to and donations are still needed. I have been there with donations of pet food and treats which have to be left outside the door. We will be giving a monetary donation as they usually receive support from the Apple Festival, but will be without that due to the cancellation this year. Our furry friends are still in need.

Please mail in your donations and note check Monthly Mission emphasis: WH animal Shelter. Thank you for your kind support.
