We can’t forget about our furry friends, and that is exactly why we are so excited to support Colony Cats & Dogs for week #5 of our #kidsgivebackcolumbus project! As a recap, we’ve made a simple weekly commitment to getting our kids involved in giving back to the community by choosing a different organization to support each week. While this is our last official week of the project, I can assure you that we will be continuing to support local organizations as it has been THE BEST experience for our kids – they loved it!

They both love animals so Colony Cats & Dogs was a perfect fit for us — the organization is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose primary mission is to address cat overpopulation in central Ohio through public awareness and spay/neuter efforts. Since 2002, our organization has facilitated spay/neuter of nearly 19,000 cats and dogs, and placed more than 15,000 pets in homes.

They have many opportunities to get involved – including volunteering at their adoption center, fostering animals or donating items or $$.

We decided to donate items off their ‘Wish List‘ — cat food & treats! My kids loved picking these out, knowing they were helping animals in the community!

You can easily drop off donations at their office which we will be doing shortly!
