We’re doing something different for JUST ONE DAY this year! We’ll be visiting local community rescue animal shelters on Monday, June 11, to learn more about them and bring in lunch and donated pet supplies to help them out year round and I need your help! Please help us collect donations of pet supplies, such as unopened food, kitty litter, toys, and any size collars and leashes (even gently used) to help them out.

JUST ONE DAY is a national movement to encourage rescue organizations to stop killing animals for 24 hours and find other, more creative ways to adopt out their adorable dogs and cats. Every year, Morgan Auto Group and The New Barker magazine have successfully placed more than 80 rescue pets in forever homes over the last three years by raising awareness of the large number of healthy dogs and cats that are ready and available for immediate adoption through rescue groups, shelters and animal services organizations.

I invite you to stop by any of these Morgan Auto Group dealerships before June 11 to donate pet food and supplies for the dealership personnel to deliver to local shelters.
