EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The East Rutherford Memorial Library Director Christine Hartigan and Children’s Librarian Maria Russo delivered a variety of donated toys, dog and cat supplies to the Bergen County Protection and Rescue Foundation, a no-kill shelter in Cliffside Park recently.
The donation drive was sponsored by a month long program at the library entitled: “Pet Food for Fines”.
Patrons were given up to $5 off their library fines if they donated dog or cat food supplies. The donated braided dog toys were made by children and families during the library’s February “Random Act of Kindness” program.
The program generated 16 toys that were donated to the shelter dogs.
