Hagåtña, Guam: This holiday season, Guam Animals In Need (GAIN) will hold a series of supply drives, with all donations going to support the care of animals at its Yigo shelter. “We’re excited to work with our entire community to help our shelter pets,” said Alison Hadley, GAIN Vice President and Co-Chair of its Fundraising Committee.

“We’re always in need of pet food, litter, and bleach,” explained Phil Cruz, GAIN Board Member and Fundraising Committee Co-Chair, “but this holiday season, we’ve put together a wish list of items, such as leashes, toys, and cleaning supplies, that our animals could really use.” A copy of GAIN’s wish list is available on its Facebook page and at

Those interested in donating may pick up a wish list, and drop off supplies, at the GAIN Holiday Supply Drive Table outside the Cost-U-Less in Dededo on:

  • Dec. 19 (Fri), 6pm–9pm
  • Dec. 20 (Sat), 10am–2pm
  • Dec. 21 (Sun), 12noon–4pm

For anyone unable to make the drives, supplies may also be dropped off at the shelter’s Yigo location any day between 9am and 5pm, or at the newly opened FETCH animal supplies shop in Hagatna during business hours.

“We thank everyone for their help during this holiday season. We currently have dozens of loving pets available for adoption, and these donated supplies will help make their lives more comfortable as they wait to find their forever homes,” said Ms. Hadley.

Guam Animals in Need is a local non-profit whose mission is to prevent cruelty to animals, promote the humane treatment of animals and perpetuate the bond between humans and animals. GAIN operates the island’s only animal shelter, located in Yigo, and may be reached at 1-671-653-GAIN (4246).
