HOLIDAY DONATIONS Re-Cap for Helping Paws
Each holiday season Wigert’s Bonsai Nursery chooses a local non-profit to collect donations for!
Since we LOVE animals here at Wigert’s, we have selected Helping Paws Animal Sanctuary in St. James City as our cause this year! We collected donations ALL through the holidays, and had the pleasure of delivering all the cat goods while also getting to connect with some of our favorite felines- check out the gallery below!
WHAT DO WE LOVE ABOUT THIS FELINE SANCTUARY?
We love that this no-kill feline sanctuary because they are giving unwanted cats a second chance. We love that they specialize in “unadoptables”or special needs cats (FIV, FELV, blind, deaf, etc.), and that the cats are housed in “rooms” instead of cages- this is what truly sets them apart! They are waited on by loving volunteers, they play with toys, and have tv’s with cat videos streaming!
They want to provide loving, long-term homes for their current residents (of over 200+ cats), but strive to provide the best living possible for them while they are in their care.
If you are interested in learning their full story of how one stray cat started it all, you can read all about it here.
WHERE DO WE DONATE AND HOW CAN YOU HELP!?
We accepted all donations at our nursery location, and then delivered them to the facility right after the first of the year! This year, we donated four large totes filled with food, treats, toys- and of course a cats favorite thing- boxes! If you are interested in visiting, adopting or donating to this facility, please check out their links and address below!
