Lisle Library Collecting 'Food for Furry Friends'

Jul 06, 2015 09:12AM ● By Nicole Mueller

During the month of July, the Lisle Library District will be collecting donations for A.D.O.P.T. (Animals Deserving of Proper Treatment) Pet Shelter - which is a private, “no kill” shelter in Naperville that has found homes for more than 20,000 pets. In addition to dog/puppy food and cat/kitten food, A.D.O.P.T. is also in need of scoopable cat litter, 6-foot dog leashes (black or red), and sturdy latex squeaky toys.

“Our patrons adore their pets, and we had a great response last year” said Teri Zarat, Assistant Director of Circulation Services.  “The library wanted to continue to organize a way to help dogs and cats in our area that are still waiting to find a forever home.”

A.D.O.P.T is thrilled to be the recipient of the Library’s donations. 

“We truly appreciate the support of our community in saving the lives of homeless, unwanted, and abandoned animals,” said Sandy Boston of A.D.O.P.T.  “Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are able to make such a difference in the lives of those animals having the greatest needs.”

The Library will be accepting donations until July 31.  For more information about “Food for Furry Friends,” please contact Circulation Services at 630-971-1675 or
