Heartland Animal Rescue Team (HART) is hosting a “baby shower” for the animals from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at 15494 Dellwood Drive in Baxter.
HART reports it is low on supplies for all of the new “babies” they expect to be coming in this spring and summer. While they are fully stocked on adult cat and dog food, they have nothing in storage for kittens and puppies. For the baby shower, HART will have young puppies and kittens in the lobby for viewing and adoption. This will be a “sneak peak” as many of these animals will be making their first debut for adoption at this event, HART reported.
The animal shelter has a litter of kittens that were born in February that will be shown for the first time at the baby shower.
HART is following with the theme in its lobby decorations, including a baby crib, which will be used to take in donations. HART reports it hopes to have many visitors looking for new pets, and of course hopes to get many donations to help the organization through the summer. Items on HART’s wish list include: dry kitten food, dry puppy food, canned cat food for skinny kittens that need to gain weight, puppy pads and cat litter.
