Collecting Holiday Donations at Wigert’s Bonsai Nursery for “Helping Paws”

COLLECTING HOLIDAY DONATIONS

Each holiday season Wigert’s Bonsai Nursery chooses a local non-profit to collect donations for!
Since we LOVE animals here at Wigert’s, we have selected Helping Paws Animal Sanctuary in St. James City as our cause this year!



WHAT DO WE LOVE ABOUT THIS FELINE SANCTUARY?

We love that this no-kill feline sanctuary because they are giving unwanted cats a second chance. We love that they specialize in “unadoptables”or special needs cats (FIV, FELV, blind, deaf, etc.), and that the cats are housed in “rooms” instead of cages- this is what truly sets them apart! They are waited on by loving volunteers, they play with toys, and have tv’s with cat videos streaming!

They want to provide loving, long-term homes for their current residents (of over 200+ cats), but strive to provide the best living possible for them while they are in their care.

If you are interested in learning their full story of how one stray cat started it all, you can read all about it here.
