Agents in ERA Key’s Whitinsville office are hoping to be dogs’ best friend this Christmas.
Making sure no one is left out this holiday season, they are accepting donations for Dog Orphans of Douglas and Pawfect Life Rescue of Uxbridge through the ERA Key Realty Services Charitable Trust Foundation.
Dog Orphans is a non-profit, no-kill shelter dedicated to saving dogs from pain and suffering. Pawfect Life Rescue if a shelterless dog rescue organization whose mission is to rescue stray dogs and place them in responsible, loving homes.
Agents have set up a dog house in the lobby to accept donations. Examples of donations being sought include:
Blankets and towels. Donate your old ones for doggie care.
