Dear editor:
This letter is written to applaud the generosity of the Pittsburg community.

Four Paws Thrift Store was opened on Oct. 1, 2010. In the three months since, donations from individuals and businesses have poured in beyond our original expectations.

Although we are a nonprofit organization, we have managed to find homes for several cats, to donate dog food to needy pet owners and to assist in defraying expenses for spaying and neutering. Much thanks is due also to the financial support of Marie Brinkman, the loyal leadership of store manager Jody Spencer, and to our many volunteers actively involved in working to preserve the welfare of needy pets and strays.

With winter arriviing, the need exists more than ever for donations. Keep them rolling in to Four Paws! (And remember, donations are tax-deductible).

Sincerely,
Norma Matzenbacher
Secretary
Four Paws Thrift Store
Pittsburg
