Porsche’s Retirement

As you may have heard, our beloved pooch Porsche has retired from her reading duties at Newton Public Library.

As thanks for all of Porsche’s  work we will be collecting doggy items, treats and supplies to donate to JCARL. We will also have a large decorated card set up in the children’s library for all the kids to sign wishing Porsche a great retirement filled with playing outdoors, chasing balls and belly rubs. Stop by the children’s library to drop off donated items and sign the card before Friday, April 11! JCARL is in need of rawhide bones, thunder shirts, small doggy beds and collars and leashes for dogs. However, they and Porsche are happy for whatever you are willing to donate. Thank you for showing your love to Porsche and JCARL!
