Homeless Dogs Need Shoes
There are hundreds of homeless youth in the Valley, and for many, their dogs are their only companions. Now that the triple digit temperatures are here, these homeless dogs are struggling with the hot pavement, often burning their feet to the point of bleeding as they travel. Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development is asking the community to consider donating dog booties to help these dogs in need and to provide peace of mind to the homeless youth that care for them.
All summer long donations can be dropped off at 3707 N. Seventh St. Suite 305, Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 5 p.m. For more information visit www.tumbleweed.org.
