Biddeford, Maine --- Biddeford Savings branch offices will be collecting donations of pet supplies for the Animal Welfare Society the month of May during its “Furry Friends Forever” campaign. Each branch office will be a drop-off location for pet food, pet toys and other supplies which will be donated to the Animal Welfare Society.

The Animal Welfare Society (AWS) is a non-profit organization, located in Kennebunk, Maine, that exists to provide humane shelter and care to companion animals temporarily in need of housing, to assist in disaster response, and to further the cause of responsible animal adoption and ownership through education and public awareness.

“Our staff wanted to give back to the community and participate in a branch wide campaign to help a local organization”, says Betsy Boudreau, Vice President and Marketing Officer at Biddeford Savings. “Many of our employees adopted their own pets from the AWS so the decision to select the AWS was an easy one for our staff.”

Donations can be dropped at any Biddeford Savings branch during regular business hours now through May 31st.

The Animal welfare Society takes care of more than 3,200 animals each year and relies on donations from the community to care for the animals. Check out a completed list of wish items by clicking on http://animalwelfaresociety.org/get_in_wish_list.html.
