Send us your old sweaters and help save these shelter dogs from the winter chill

A warm thank you to our readers and supporters in this mission. After making a few phone calls, we found a near by shelter who was more than happy to accept the rest of the sweaters. We have been asked by email and on my blog more than once about an address to send donations. We have given a great deal of thought to ways to get more sweaters to dogs everywhere. Here in our small home town we only represent a small corner of the country. The winters are nice compared to many chilling places up north and through-out.

After talking to other shelters just in our area I can only imagine what dogs go through every winter all over the us. Its obvious we have (unexpectedly) stumbled upon a HUGE issue that should be addressed.

The question lately has been…how? How do we address such a large scale issue? Well I think we have found the answer. I believe with the help of other caring dog lovers and our friends and the friends of friends we can accomplish an amazing thing.

And, while we may be venturing in new territory I am not at all skeptical of the compassion that exist through our blog readers and many more pet lovers through-out out this country. The key has always been to build a bridge between the dogs and the people that are willing to help them.

So it is with this blog that we have decided to expand our mission beyond the scope of our small town and invite others to reach out from all over.

Here’s how you can help:

Send us your old sweaters and we will recycle them and distribute them to animal shelters all over the us so that dogs just like the ones we’ve already helped dont have to suffer through the cold winter(the smaller the better). Im sure if you dig around your closet you can find a sweater or two that you never plan on wearing again.

Send your old sweaters to the following address:

PO Box 19071
Hattiesburg Ms
39404

If you DONT have any old sweaters:

Then pass this blog to someone who does!

Do you have a friend or family member who has a passion for animals besides yourself? Then simply copy and paste the url below in an email and ask a friend or family member to visit this blog so they can help too!

Thank you all for your support in this mission. And Im sure the dogs will thank you too!

We will post updates soon!

  2. You guys are heros!! Thank you for being such compassionate, wonderful human beings! You’re an inspiration to us all! Jennifer Skiff

  3. I get a massive discount at fedex, but they won’t ship to a PO Box…Is there another address?
    Thanks, and sorry for the hassle!

  4. we have about 10 boxes of sweaters and blankets and we cannot send it without an address. no p.o. box. if we dont here from you soon we will send the sweaters out to someonelse.
    thx.

  7. I want to send a box of sweaters by UPS and they will not deliever to a P O box. Can I have an actual address or should I send large box by postal service to a box?

  8. Joyce, the postal service wouldn’t have a problem with it. But we have had this issue with UPS before. I would try the postal service. Thank you very much for your kind support!

  9. What a wonderful idea! And I think there is something even beyond the idea of keeping the dogs warm but the fact that they have something of their own. I see the dogs at our shelter get excited because of a bandanna! I truly believe that they know it is for “them”, it is comforting to them to have something “warm and snuggly” surrounding them and gives them a sense of belonging. I can’t wait to go through my closet!!!!

  10. Oh, and for those of you having trouble with shipping, remember that the Post Office has that deal with the one-price boxes – “if it fits, it ships”.

  11. You guys are awesome! WHat a great idea. I mainly help rescue and place abandoned horses but we (Everyone) have to help all of the animals on this planet who are in a bad situation. I will email this to everyone I know.

  12. I think this is a great idea. I’m posting this blog on Sodahead. There are over a million members. It will also shared with Twitter. Hope thats OK.

  13. I am sending you a ton of pet clothes and toys (some chrismas themed ones included!) I hope it helps warm pets across america and help them get adopted soon!

    Thanks for doing a GREAT thing, I’m truely inspired!

  14. Wow, incredible blog layout! How long have you been running a blog for? you made running a blog glance easy. The entire glance of your website is great, let alone the content!

  15. I have read several good stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much effort you put to make such a magnificent informative website.

  16. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this brilliant blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will share this blog with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
