Dog treats donated to Animal Services
Pinellas County Animal Services was recently the recipient of dog treats from the Browns Backers of Pinellas Inc. The club of Cleveland Browns football fans donated 400 pounds of Milk-Bone dog biscuits and peanut butter to the shelter on Feb. 3.
“We are so thankful to the Browns Backers of Pinellas for their generous donation to homeless dogs,” said Maureen Freaney, director of Pinellas County Animal Services, in a press release. “Milk-Bone dog biscuits are a personal favorite for our canine guests at the shelter. The shelter depends heavily on citizens and the community for these special treats for the dogs.”
