The Sedalia Animal Shelter begins their Donation Drive.

The need for animal food and supplies at the Sedalia Animal Shelter continues as winter approaches, but donations often decrease as the holidays near. To help, we at the Thompson Hills Animal Clinic are conducting our Fourth Annual Pet Food Drive for the Sedalia Animal Shelter through the end of November.  Donations of dog and cat food, blankets, laundry soap, and bleach to aid in the operation of the local animal shelter are encouraged. Convenient drop off locations for your donations are at Thompson Hills Animal Clinic across from West Lake Ace Hardware at 1201 Thompson Blvd or at the shelter, 2900 West Main St.  During this season of thanks, remember the cats and dogs looking for permanent homes, temporarily housed in the Sedalia Animal Shelter. Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated. For more information, contact Debbie Spalding or Dr. Chad McNeal at Thompson Hills Animal Clinic, 1201 Thompson Blvd, Sedalia.

The Katy Depot will again this Christmas sponsor the Mitten Train in an effort to collect mittens and gloves for local children’s benefit.

Teachers have made a special request for mittens for the preschool and kindergarten students, who have difficulty getting their little fingers into the gloves. They’ve received a generous donation of hats, and therefore will not need those donated this year.  Anyone wanting to help fill the Mitten Train’s cars can bring their gloves and mittens to the Katy Depot at 600 East Third street in Sedalia from now until December 15.  The items will be distributed to the schools before the children leave for the Christmas holiday.  For additional information, contact Kathleen Boswell at the Sedalia Heritage Foundation by calling 826-2932 or email

Have a great weekend!
