In Memory of Vonnie Harris and For the Love of Senior Animals
For the 6th year in a row, you can donate dog supplies at Salty’s Pet Supply (and our sister stores) for seniors. The store is a donation site for Jake n’ Max’s Boxes of Love and the decorated boxes are filling up!
This event is a tribute to the unwavering love of two beloved senior dogs and the drive collects donations of everything from cozy comforts for seniors, supplements for older guys, toys and any item that can brighten the lives of sweet adoptable animals at Animal Aid that need a little extra help and love. Animal Aid’s heartstring animals are featured in this campaign.
The campaign runs through Feb. 14 and you can donate dog supplies anytime! In year’s past, we’ve delivered nearly a carload from each store with donations of beds, food, treats, and supplies thanks to our generous customers!
This is also a very special event as we’re remembering our friend and colleague Vonnie Harris, the mastermind, behind Jake n’ Max’s Boxes. Vonnie passed away in 2018 and we miss her. A tribute was written last October.
Longtime Spot Magazine editor, Jennifer Mccammon, tells us,
“Vonnie Harris and her sister Viki created Jake ‘n Max’s Boxes of Love as a tribute to their beloved Labs, Jake and Max. The pair worked tirelessly to help “oldsters” by collecting gear and goods for senior pets each year. The project required finding partner businesses to serve as donation sites, decorating large boxes to contain donations (in later years the pair invited local seniors to participate in this), collecting and finally delivering donated goods to the beneficiaries — rescues serving senior pets.
We carry on Jake ‘n Max’s Boxes of Love out of gratitude for Vonnie and Viki’s care and service, and to honor Vonnie, who passed peacefully October 29.
For the love of senior pets . . . for the love of uplifting others . . . for the love of Vonnie.”
