I try to help my local "no kill" humane society as much as I can.
At the moment I collect cans from work and home and take them there.
I grow a few veggies, take some into work, sell them and donate the proceeds.
I visit the cats there, go round the cages, talk to and fuss all the pusses and charge myself a $20 donation for the pleasure. (a bargain)
Now a potentially new idea to help has surfaced on a gardening forum which I frequent.
Someone on there suggested growing catnip and giving it to a local humane society to sell.
Great idea!! Mine has a little thrift shop attached.
So, next year I'm going to grow lots of it.
I was wondering if anyone here had come across anything similar to this in their area and had suggestions on how it was offered
ie fresh, dried, leaf, bud. All ideas you have would be welcome. I just want to grow it and give it to them in a way they may be able to raise money.
By the way, I was in my local branch on Friday and they'd had 2 batches of kittens dumped there in 2 days, 12 "kitlets" in all
They were all beautiful, healthy looking, mewing darlings and I could have scooped the whole bloody batch up and taken them home. <sniff>
The branch has a capacity for 105 and they now have almost 150 unwanted pets there.
Thankfully they don't have much trouble finding homes for the wee "mewlets" as I call them but it still angers me how some people could do such a thing.
Anyway, I look forward to suggestions.
