Over 1,000 Owls ‘Adopted’ for Little Shelter and Bideawee.

Teachers Federal Credit Union, one of the country’s largest credit unions, concluded its “Adopt-An-Owl” drive in March, raising $5,666.64 in funds in support of Little Shelter Animal Adoption Center in Huntington, and Bideawee in Westhampton.

For a contribution of $5, members were able to take home a stuffed owl with accompanying adoption certificate. Over the course of the drive, held at select branches, more than 1,000 owls were purchased. Pet supply bins were also available for members to drop off pet supplies and cash donation boxes were on-hand in each branch for monetary contributions.

“The TFCU pet supply drive is an event that our members and staff have generously contributed to in years past. The addition of this year’s Adopt-An-Owl campaign increased our ability to donate even more than we ever expected, said Robert G. Allen, President/CEO of TFCU. “Bideawee and Little Shelter feed, house and protect animals day-in and day-out and we are proud to help support their efforts.”
