“Wagging Tales Rescue in Hilliard needs your help, Wildcats! They are collecting new or gently used shoes to raise money for their rescue dogs’ medical expenses and are about 400 pairs away from reaching their goal. There are three locations in Hilliard where you can drop off donations, including Whit’s on Main Street and Petvalu on Fishinger Boulevard. You can also email waggingtalesrescueohio@gmail.com to request a porch pickup. Can we help them pass the finish line before the September 30 deadline?“
