Spring Donation Festival
Friday, April 12, 2013 at 12:00 PM - Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 6:00 PM (EDT)
East Massapequa, NY
Kids Adopt A Shelter, a kids and family animal rescue support group, was founded in December 2011 by the now 13 year old actor Sean Martin, a Massapequa and Town of Oyster Bay resident. His idea has blossomed into a worldwide initiative. He has overseen the donation of thousands of dollars in food and accessories to our local shelters.
Members of “Pequa Dog Park”, along with the Long Island Dog Owners Group (LIDog.org), Massapequa Mom’s, and “Pequa News” (pequanews.com) are joining Sean and “Kids Adopt A Shelter” (http://www.kidsadoptashelter.org) in an effort to support the “Town of Oyster Bay Animal Shelter.” We are setting up a donation drop off at the Massapequa Dog Park on April 12th, 13th and 14th. Suggested items include pet food, blankets/sheets/towels, toys, collars/leashes, bedding, crates, treats, pet grooming supplies, cleaning supplies (paper towels, bleach, soap, etc.), cat litter, scratching posts, bowls and anything you can think of for pets. We ask for all to participate in this event and salute the efforts of this fine young man.
Let us show the world how strong our community can be.

When & Where
Kids Adopt a Shelter
Kids Adopt A Shelter is a network of children and their families across the world that are on a mission to help comfort and support animals that are in shelters waiting for homes – or the shelters that are their home. It was founded in Dec. 2011 by child actor Sean Martin to help the Little Shelter in Huntington, NY. “Kids Adopt A Shelter” presently has over 6,200 Facebook “likes” as well as representatives for New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom, 24 states and over 60 shelters (adopters). Their mission is “To make sure every shelter, rescue and foster can keep animals comfortable while waiting to be adopted, with the help of fellow kids.” “Kid” shelter representatives (or adopters) organize donation drives and fundraise for their adopted shelter (adoptees). They collect pet related items such as food, blankets, grooming supplies, toys and more. Sean wants more kids to become involved "because animals need a voice and kids can be that voice."
