We welcome your donated newspapers. If possible, please sort out the shiny or slick pages because they don’t absorb well and some inks can be harmful. This step will save our volunteers precious time.

Please store your newspapers FLAT, it is very hard to get a newspaper that has been rolled for any length of time to lay flat in the kennel. Folded in half and stored in a box or paper bag works great.
