Annual toy drive underway at local animal hospitals
Herrin Animal Hospital in Cassville and Monett Veterinary Hospital are currently conducting their 12th annual holiday toy drive. Toys will be collected at both facilities through Wednesday, Dec. 14.
"It is always a special time for us when we load up the truck with toys every year," said Dr. Herrin, owner of both animal hospitals. "My staff and I really enjoy participating in this, and our friends and clients always amaze us with their generosity. We look forward to this every year."
Toys collected at the animal hospitals will benefit the Barry County OACAC Neighborhood Center's annual Share Your Christmas effort, which distributes toys to hundreds of local children each year.
Community members are invited to participate in the toy drive by bringing a new toy to Herrin Animal Hospital, located at 93 Smithson Dr. in Cassville or the Monett Veterinary Hospital at 215 Dairy St. in Monett.
