Thank You Pine Island and Matlacha

By Staff | Jan 13, 2021

To the editor:

Just a quick note to let you know how grateful we all are for not only the Christmas gifts and mug sales, but for the donations we received all year. COVID made 2020 a tough year for everyone, which makes your support even more meaningful. We had big plans to celebrate our 10th anniversary, so it was extremely frustrating to have to cancel our yearly auction and other celebratory plans.

Our spoiled furry darlings have had to put up with some generic food on occasion and have been quite miffed. They love their Friskies canned food! On a bright note, adoptions increased. (Many of you now have an extra mouth or two to feed, so you understand what I mean about the generic food.)  

I also want to thank our wonderful volunteers. They have been amazing through this ordeal. They stuck with us even through the great toilet paper shortage! As the saying goes, “Hard Times Will Always Reveal True Friends.”

Thank you again and I hope you all have a happy healthy 2021!
