The Nautical Dog Donates Adoption Packs To Heritage Humane Society

JAMES CITY-The Nautical Dog, a pet supply store in New Town, recently donated adoption bags for individuals who adopt cats and dogs at the Heritage Humane Society.

“We want our adopters to start their adventure with their new fur baby on the right paw, and Nautical Dog is helping make that possible,” Heritage Humane Society wrote in a post on social media on January 5.

Amanda Wilbourne, owner of The Nautical Dog, said she first got the idea while thinking of all of the animals left without a home during the holiday season.  The Nautical Dog donated a total of 82 bags. Each bag contained one can of food, one bag of treats, and one toy.

The Nautical Dog likes to give back to the community in various ways. The third weekend of every month is Clean for A Cause weekend in which the business donates $5 from every self-serve dog wash to a local pet rescue.

“Any time that I can help animals, I do it,” Wilbourne said.
