Animal lovers are giving an Ikea store in Italy massive love after photos appeared on social media that apparently show stray dogs sleeping among the furniture displays.
A local shopper was initially surprised to see some stray dogs relaxing in a living room display at the Ikea until she found out the back story. It turns out this location opens it’s doors to stray dogs when the weather turns cold. The staff even provide the animals with food and water.
Not only do the dogs get to enjoy warmth and basic necessities but most shoppers stop for a visit to give the dogs some love and compassion during their shopping trip.
Normally we don’t want you to get a ticket of any sort but in this case, it could be for a good cause. The City of Brooks has brought back a popular holiday initiative as a way for people to help pay off municipal tickets.
The Toys for Tickets campaign is officially underway. The initiative sees the city accepting toys in lieu of payment for municipal tickets. The toys will be donated to local families through the Scotia Bank Smiles for Christmas toy Drive Campaign.
Any ticket with a value of $57 or less issued between November 14 and December 10 is eligible for the program. A toy donation can be brought to the Brooks City Hall, and will be accepted until December 14. Those with multiple violations will have to bring in multiple unwrapped toys. The toys must be age appropriate for children under 12, new and in their original packaging, and must be at least $30 in value.
