Corpus Christi Public Libraries and Animal Care Services Partner for Animal Shelter Donations

Request for Donations and New Drop Off Sites

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – To prepare for colder temperatures during the winter months, Animal Care Services would like to invite the community to donate gently used or new items to keep our pets warm and comfortable for the holidays. Donation items such as blankets, towels, treats, and pet-friendly toys are encouraged.  

Animal Care Services, located at 2626 Holly Road, 78415, will be collecting donations during their operation hours: Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. In an effort to support our pets and provide the community with more accessible drop-off locations in the City, Corpus Christi Public Libraries are partnering with Animal Care Services by expanding drop-off locations. Donations will be accepted until Thursday, December 23.

“The most worthwhile gift you can give a homeless animal is a home, but if your situation renders that impossible, donating blankets, towels, and nourishment to your local shelter, especially during the winter months, is a very noble act, too,” Mayor Paulette M. Guajardo said.
