I had been going to the shelter for supplies for a few weeks and they were out of scoopable litter. I have a plethora of litter at our home because I buy a lot of it when it goes on sale, but I knew the shelter really could use some, so when Big Lots gave out a 20% off coupon I decided to buy about $100 worth of litter for a donation.
I went down and only saw a few cases on the shelf, so I asked management if they had any more. After the ineveitable questions as to why, they said they had recently done a donation drive for animal supplies for another shelter but since they hadn't picked it up in months, would I like to bring it down.
Well I'm never one to turn down a donation for the shelter. I know that they also supply a local food pantry with pet food with supplies they have in excess, so even if the shelter couldn't use it, it would go to use.
So this is what $100 (almost 500lbs) of litter looks like after I sweet talked the staff :)
