Troopers from the Bloomington post of the Indiana State Police are collecting pet supplies for a holiday pet drive.
The pet drive, called Claus for Paws, will benefit sheltered animals at the White River Humane Society in Bedford, Indiana. The shelter is experiencing a shortage of dry cat food, cat litter, paper towels, bleach and laundry soap. Collars, leashes, peanut butter and Cheese Whiz have also been requested by the shelter.
Any monetary donations given in lieu of supplies will be put in the shelter’s medical fund.
Last year, the first year of the drive, more than $300 of donations and contributions were given. One pet was also adopted. Items for donation will be collected at the ISP post at 1500 North Packinghouse Road until Dec. 18.
