November 25, 2013FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Red Bandanna Pet Food will host the Angel Tree program, beginning the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 29.
The Angel Tree is a "wish list" of items local rescue pets need this season. Items include food, supplements, treats, toys, leashes and shampoo.
"Customers just pick an angel off the tree with the name of the rescue and pet while doing their regular shopping and buy what that pet is wishing for this holiday season," said Dylan Yellowlees, social media and graphics manager for Red Bandanna. "We collect the gifts and present them to the rescues at the end of December."
Last year, Angel Tree raised about $7,000 worth of products to six local rescues.
This year, Red Bandanna is sponsoring five Atlanta-area rescues: Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee (in Georgia), Good Mews, Mutt Madd-ness, Southeast Pug Rescue and Adoption Inc. and You Lucky Dog.
All 13 Red Bandanna stores across Atlanta (Alpharetta, Atlanta, Buckhead, Buford, Canton, Marietta, Milton, Norcross, Roswell and Suwanee) participate in Angel Tree.
