We always need laundry detergent! Can you believe that we sometimes do 640 pounds of laundry per day in the Adoption and Education Center to keep the animals clean and comfy? That's a whole lot of towels, blankets and toys! But we must keep the animals healthy with fresh, clean laundry daily. Next time you visit the grocery store, please pick up a gallon of liquid laundry detergent - nothing fancy please since we can't use HE or powdered detergents. Please drop off the detergent at our Adoption Center (red building on the left) at 14 Forever Friend Lane, Asheville, NC 28806. The animals thank you!
