Donations can be dropped off at the OBL/ET offices from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. Donors will be able to choose a gift card at random with value ranging from $5 to $20, and they’ll become eligible to win a $100 gift certificate.
Super Heroes in Ripped Jeans is located at 697 Winney Hill Rd., Oneonta. They’re open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Wednesday, and they currently have 60 adoptable animals, with another 34 animals becoming available as soon as they are well enough or old enough.
