Bobbi and the Strays is a local animal shelter that takes care of cats and dogs until they can find their forever homes. Bobbi and the Strays has been known to travel to other parts of the United States to rescue animals who are in danger, especially during natural disasters such as hurricanes and wild fires. This shelter will never put down an animal. Some of its residents have lived there for years waiting to be adopted.
The Lakeside Student Council Crew knew how great a need there was at Bobbi and the Strays, so they held a collection for a week and a half and the donations came pouring in. They were able to collect 16 huge garbage bags filled with old towels, blankets and sheets, which are used to bathe and keep the animals comfortable while waiting for their forever homes.
In addition, our volunteer mamas also dropped off eight boxes of food, treats, collars, leashes and toys. The volunteers at Bobbi and the Strays were blown out of the water by the generosity of the Lakeside Family! The best part is that they didn’t know about the collection, so everything was a surprise to them! We couldn’t have been happier to help such a worthy charity.
Student Council mamas Loretta Watstein and Terri Lieberman are pictured delivering the donations.
If you are interested in adopting or volunteering your time, you can contact Bobbi and the Strays, 2 Rider Place, Freeport, New York, at (516) 378-4340.
