For the 12th year, Best Friends Pet Care (www.bestfriendspetcare.com), the leading pet care services company in the U.S., is collecting donations for local shelters and rescues.  Each of the 42 pet care centers has an Angel Tree in its lobby with paper ornaments featuring photos and information about dogs and cats waiting for forever homes.

Pet lovers are invited to visit or call a Best Friends location to select a dog or cat from the tree and donate to the wish list on its card. The program runs through December 31 with deliveries being made to the shelters throughout the holiday season. Best Friends supplements donations with food and other supplies.

"Holiday season can be challenging for local shelters in the best years," says Renee Coughlin, Vice President of Marketing, Best Friends Pet Care. "This year, Hurricane Sandy has put an even bigger burden on shelters – not just along the east coast, but across the country – because so many lost and abandoned pets need help.  We know our Angel Tree program will make a difference for many pets in need." 

Beneficiaries range from large shelters like the Morris Animals Refuge in Philadelphia and the Sacramento SPCA and to small rescue groups like Sweet Paw Rescue in Massachusetts and Pawfest Match Rescue in North Carolina.

Since it began in December 2000, the Best Friends Pet Care Angel Tree campaign has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of food, toys and pet care products to more than 100 different shelters and rescues across the U.S. -- and dozens of pets have found new homes in time for the new year.
