St. Louis, MO – The holiday season is quickly approaching and Kolbeco Marketing Resources employees and their dogs, affectionately known as the Board of Dogrectors are launching their annual drive to benefit Stray Rescue of St. Louis. Now in its fourth year, Frills for Furbabies has raised nearly $20,000 in donations and supplies to benefit the non-profit, no-kill animal shelter.

From November 9 through December 16, the drive will collect supplies and monetary donations that are so desperately needed to enable the shelter to continue to provide food, medical care and shelter to the homeless, neglected and abused animals of St. Louis. Donations will be accepted at several partner locations including Kolbeco.

“At Kolbeco, we’re passionate about our pets. On any given day, there are at least eight dogs roaming our office, including several Stray Rescue adoptees and fosters,” says Lauren Kolbe, Co-Owner and Senior Manager of Kolbeco Marketing Resources. “Our dogs play an important role in promoting goodwill to animals in need in the community. Our commitment to that cause was the driving force behind Frills, and with the support of our Pack Partners, we look forward to making this the best year yet.”

Frills For Furbabies encourages local companies and organizations to participate.  Groups of all sizes can join the Pack Leader Program and host their own mini-drive, collecting donations on behalf of the Frills For Furbabies drive. Also, companies have the option of holding a Casual Day for a Stray, offering employees an opportunity to dress down on a designated day in exchange for a monetary donation to Frills For Furbabies. All proceeds from both programs will be picked up by members of the Kolbeco team and added to the donations collected at participating locations.

New for 2012 – Frills For Furbabies will recognize donors with a Top Dog Incentive Program, offering recognition and awards to those that go above and beyond. Incentives include: guided tours of Stray Rescue, 8”x8” memorial bricks outside the Stray Rescue facility, framed photo with Stray Rescue Founder Randy Grim and framed certificates.
