Village Health Clubs holiday drive aids no-kill animal shelter

Charitable Valley residents, animal lovers and anyone else interested in helping the Village Health Clubs & Spas raise funds and supplies for a popular no-kill animal shelter are asked to visit one of the company’s facilities in December and donate a used book, CD or DVD.

The Village Health Clubs & Spas is hosting a holiday donation drive to benefit the Home Fur Good shelter in Phoenix. As a no-kill animal shelter, Home Fur Good helps care for and find permanent homes for animals collected by Maricopa County Animal Care & Control which would otherwise be euthanized.

Layout 1Maricopa County has the second largest intake and euthanasia rates in the nation, behind only Los Angeles County.

To help raise funds for Home Fur Good, the Village is inviting members to donate new or gently used DVDs, CDs and books to the 501(c)(3) non-profit charity at any of the Village’s four Valley locations, including the two Scottsdale locations — D.C. Ranch and at Gainey Village.

The drive continues through Dec. 20, and the Village is also encouraging people to donate needed supplies to the shelter, including dog training treats, rawhide bones and cat litter.
