The gifts were the Christmas charity project of the members of the Quilt Posse Guild which meets each month at the Montgomery County Library in order to help preserve the art and history of quilting.

Director Clifton provided a tour of the cat adoption facility where visitors can meet  and choose a cat for adoption . During the visit we were able to meet Adoption counselor volunteers Kim Bradley and Shauna Lund, who help families choose a pet that will blend well with their family.

The shelter has a donation wish list that can be obtained at the front desk. Some of the needed items include Cat litter, wet food for kittens and older dogs, stainless steel non-tip bowls for dogs and cats, thick trash bags, cat and dog grooming brushes and shampoos, and flea treatment for both dogs and cats.

They also need volunteers  and greatly appreciate donations.  Gift certificates from pet centers for toys and supplies are greatly appreciated. The shelter also accepts clean, not-shredded newspapers for use in the animal cages.

If you have time to spare or need a worthwhile project for your group or club, please consider the Montgomery County Animal Control and Adoption Service on Spring Street here in Clarksville. There is a Facebook page online and a friendly staff available at the office to answer questions.

Merry Christmas to all the staff and animals available for adoption.
