If you are looking to add man's best friend to your life, we can help you out!
E.A.R.S or Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary has a number of animals up for adoption and looking for good homes.
They also have a way you can help them make the holiday season brighter.

Mary Curtis joined us in the studio this morning with what you need to know to add that special furry friend to your family.

Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary (EARS) is pleased to announce that they are selling fresh cut Christmas trees this season to benefit the animals.

The tree sale began on November 23rd and will continue until quantities are depleted.

They will be selling only fresh cut, grade “A” quality Fraser Firs from North Carolina.

The trees vary in size from 5’ to 9’. All trees are on display at their Dearborn Street location.

Operating hours are Tuesday thru Friday from 10am to 8pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 8pm and Monday 5pm to 8pm.

They will also deliver trees for a nominal fee. 

There are many good reasons to buy a fresh cut tree from EARS.

One is that the proceeds go directly to the care of the animals.

Another great reason is that the purchase is considered a donation and would be tax deductible.

Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary is a non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing, caring for and adopting homeless cats and dogs.

EARS is a no-kill, no-cage shelter serving Sarasota, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties.

All donations may be dropped off at Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary, 145 W. Dearborn Street, Englewood, FL 34223.
