COSHOCTON – When helping your fellow man this Christmas season, don’t forget to lend a hand to the animals of Coshocton County as well. Bill Appis, owner of Coshocton Furniture on Main Street, is continuing a three-year program that benefits the dogs and cats at the local animal shelter. Carol Guithrie, who works at Coshocton Furniture, came up with the idea three years ago and Appis jumped on board.

Together, they have started collecting food, toys, and other items for the animals at the county shelter. People in the community are encouraged to donate dog food, cat food, toys, treats, or kitty litter to Coshocton Furniture for our furry friends for Christmas. All monetary donations are accepted as well and will go toward purchasing food for the dogs and cats.

“It’s like a fundraiser we do for animals because they need a Christmas too,” said Appis. “We know that the animal shelter’s funding has been cut, and this is just something special we do for the animals.”

Appis has two Christmas trees in the store and the goal is to fill each tree with items for the animals. The deadline to submit an item is Dec. 23. They will be delivered to the animals that day and volunteers are welcome to help deliver.

   Appis will also be in the Christmas parade this Friday night with a canister for monetary donations for the animal shelter.  Kittens from the animal shelter will be featured in the parade and Coshocton Furniture will be paying for neutering and shots of any kitten purchased this Friday night.
