Annual Giving Tree Fundraiser now accepting donations for 3 animal rescue organizations

For more than 30 years, the Sunny Brae Animal Clinic has been hosting its "Giving Tree Fundraiser," where it collects donations for local animal rescue organizations. This year, the Giving Tree will collect items and monetary donations for the Sequoia Humane Society, Mending Mutts, and the Butte County Humane Society.

The mission of Mending Mutts is to foster and find homes for stray, abandoned and surrendered animals with behavioral, special, or medical needs in Humboldt County as well as preventing dogs and cats from being euthanized for treatable health or behavioral issues.

The Sequoia Humane Society's mission is to be a community leader in promoting the humane treatment of all animals and end pet overpopulation by providing a high standard of care through programs such as pet adoption, spay and neuter and community education.

Butte Humane Society's current focus is treating and caring for animals wounded or lost in the Camp Fire. They have also opened a "pantry" in Chico for those who have proof of residence in Paradise for people to come get anything they need for their animals for free (food, litter, leashes, toys, etc.)

All organizations' wish lists include monetary donations, gift cards, good-quality food (They recommend Nature's Domain and Call of the Wild) for cats and dogs, cat and dog toys, animal beds, Thundershirts, laundry detergent and more. To donate, go to Sunny Brae Animal Clinic at 900 Buttermilk Ln. in Arcata.

Another great way to contribute to the cause is by considering adopting an animal from one of these organizations. Reach out to Mending Mutts on Facebook, call Sequoia Humane Society at 707-442-1782, and Butte Humane Society at 530-343-7917.
