The Humane Society of Ottawa County has placed a “Giving Tree” in three local locations for anyone wishing to donate to the Humane Society over the Christmas holiday. Trees are located at Bassett’s Market, 3994 E. Harbor Rd., Port Clinton; The Lake House, 3874 E. Harbor Light Landing Dr., Port Clinton; and Miller’s New Market, 22361 W. Holt Harrigan Rd., Genoa.
These 6-foot Christmas Trees have paper ornaments with items listed that are needed at the shelter. Shoppers take an ornament off the tree, purchase the item and return it to the store. A box is provided with the tree for these items. Items needed include dog and cat food, cleaning supplies, toys and gas cards.
Some ornaments list monetary donations to pay for a dog or cat spay/neuter, veterinary tests, vaccinations, or adoption fees. These monetary donations can be mailed to the Humane Society using a self-addressed envelope that is attached to the ornament.
