St. Louis, MO – As the days continues to grow colder, there is a growing number of abandoned pets and strays trying desperately to survive the elements. Also suffering are area rescue shelters like Stray Rescue of St. Louis and Five Acres Animal Shelter who care for stray or surrendered animals. To support their efforts in this critical time, Kolbeco employees and their dogs are kicking off the 6th annual Frills for Furbabies drive. The drive takes place from through December 17 with donations accepted at ten locations around the St. Louis region.

Much-needed items that are on the wish list for both shelters include food, towels and blankets, collars, leashes, crates, cleaning supplies, and more. Monetary donations are also being accepted for both Stray Rescue and Five Acres at www.FrillsForFurbabies.com.

To date, Frills for Furbabies has raised more than $30,000 in supplies and monetary donations.

“To support our mission of making a difference in the life of a homeless animal, it is important to provide opportunities for “giving back” that fits the individual,” says Kolbeco Art Director and Frills organizer, Erin Celuch. “Whether you want to donate gently used towels, buy new pet collars, or prefer to write a check, you know you are making a positive impact on lives at the shelters.”

Frills For Furbabies also honors top donors and partners who go above and beyond collecting monies or supplies by hosting in-house drives or casual day for a stray. Honorees for 2013 include Carol House Furniture, Continental Real Estate Services, Wamhoff Financial Planning and Accounting Services, Inc., and The Watering Bowl.
