Feelgood Friday - BAPS


It's Feelgood Friday! And iIt’s hard not to feel good about the important work the Brooks Animal Protection Society Does. Every day their staff and a small army of volunteers work tirelessly to help cats, dogs and sometimes even bunnies, lizards, geckos and snakes find their forever home.

Looking to adopt? You’re in luck: Chamber Member Pet Valu Brooks is hosting a BAPS adoption event next Saturday, Feb 10th from 1-4pm.

Want to help, but not ready to adopt? We get that! But did you know there are other ways that you can help out?

One of the most exciting is by volunteering at - or hiring BAPS for - one of their “drive-home” events. When your office, company or organization has a party where you are serving alcohol, you can get volunteers from BAPS to drive you and your vehicle home! It’s a great service to the community, it keeps folks safe and it provides a little income for a great cause!

If late nights are not for you, helping BAPS could be as easy as cleaning your pantry. Did you know they currently need bleach, laundry soap, paper towels, disposable gloves, and white kitchen bags?

And, as you might expect, they are always recruiting volunteers to play with cats, walk dogs, foster or even serve on their Executive! And, of course, donations of cash are not only welcome, but qualify for a tax receipt!

The folks at the Chamber want to thank BAPS and PetValu for being Members of the Chamber and for all the great work they do! Lets see you at the adoption event next Saturday!
