The call for donations comes at a much-needed time for the shelter, which was forced to cancel an adoption drive on Saturday due to the weekend's storm.
Michelle Marlow, Executive Director of Mighty Mutts, expressed her appreciation for whoever made the kind gesture. She told The Dodo:
We don't know who left the notes, but I think the proactive approach to fundraising is wonderful. People are always looking for ways to help out, and this is a very creative and helpful one at that. We haven't noticed a surge in donations, but this time of year tends to be very difficult for donations in general. It is after the holidays and the cold weather reduces traffic at our weekly adoption drives in Union Square (every Saturday at the corner of 14th St and University). We could really use donations of canned and dry pet food as well as monetary donations. And special thanks to our "shoveling angel," whoever you are!
Hopefully the generosity of this "shoveling angel" will spread farther than East 7th Street.
