This will be a simple letter for you to read. It's just a thought/wish that I wanted to share with you.

I volunteer at PALS (People Assisting the Lodi Animal Shelter), of which I am sure you have heard. They do so much to help the city of Lodi's animal population, and are in need of more help and more donations. I wish that your paper would shine some light on PALS and all their wonderful animals that so desperately want forever homes.

They have an event coming up that could use more advertising. They are also trying to raise funds to build a bigger structure to house all the cats and dogs. Have you been to PALS lately? It's jam-packed! They need more volunteers, too. Most importantly, they need people to adopt.

They need their name out there. PALS can be found on Facebook but only have a small handful of friends. I know Lodi cares about the animals we share this great city with. Please help! Anything you can do would be amazing.

Thank you for listening to this one simple person who dreams big for the things that really matter.
