Winter is here, we don't have the permanent shelter yet, so we are still looking for newspapers, towels and blankets. We are still looking for extra tarps and thing to keep the animals warm at night."

Liberty is asking anyone who can donate a blanket, portable heater, towels or newspapers to bring your donations to the shelter at 760 West Nielson, in Fresno.
