I am a grandma who was introduced to Webkinz by my Grandson. I now have over fifty Webkinz. Some of them are my favorites and there are certain animals I actually put in a storage box. I had no idea what to do with them all. A few years ago my daughter fell and broke both her ankles. When
the Life Squad came they gave my grandson a teddy bear. I stopped at the local Fire Department to find out if they would like my Webkinz ( they were already entered in my computer ) to give to
children when they made a emergency run. They told me the stuffed animals had to be in plastic and
be new. But they knew of a place where abused woman and children go that would love them.
They gave me the phone# of the local YWCA that would be able to get these pets a new home. I called the # they gave me. You would have thought I was giving them the world. They also mentioned Childern Services would love to have them also. I am sure there are other agencys that would love to receive these adorable pets.
I would love to see the childrens faces when they are given a pet to keep. The majority of these children do not own a computer, a family, or even a home.
I am sure their are alot of other charities that would accept these animals. Check out your local charities.
We buy these Webkinz to play with and then we put them in a chair, bed or a closet. Why not let someone else enjoy and take care of them.
Why can't anyone be adopted twice? Now that is LOVE!
