From edible peanut butter flavored bubbles, lick mats and toys to other special gifts, sheltered pets at Arlington Animal Services are loving the kindness and generosity received through donations.

Animal Services staff has been working extra hard behind the scenes in the shelter to provide fun interaction and new enrichment strategies with the animals in their care during this unprecedented time.

Shelter staff enjoy providing innovative enrichment measures to help the animals relieve stress, anxiety and boredom, making a difference in their lives. A special wish list was shared on social media, and the response has been heartwarming.

Much appreciation to everyone that has shown their love of animals and kindness through donations.
