for its animal shelter in Shirlington. Canned food, collars, toys and even some office supplies are greatly appreciated. The AWLA
has requested no milk bones, boxed hard treats or homemade items.The drive runs throughout the month. Drop-offs are encouraged between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

The bulk of the collected donations will be presented to the Animal Welfare League at its Wags "n Whiskers
pet celebration on Aug. 27 in Shirlington Village.
