Donations for the cubs

Dear Editor:

Bear cubs, that is. It is that time of the year at the PSS Wildlife Foundation. The bear cubs are fattening up on pounds and pounds of fruits, melons and dog food prior to their return to the wild.

If you would like to help feed the cubs, bring “unopened” bags of high-quality, dry dog food to the Pitkin County Jail between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. any day of the week. There will be a bin just inside the door where you can leave the dog food. If you need help carrying the bagged dog food, please go to the window inside the jail and ask for assistance.

Richard Pryor, chief of police, said that donors may park in the Galena Street circle, just off Main Street next to the Pitkin County Courthouse, while they are taking their dog food donations to the jail.

Monetary donations can also be made to the PSS Wildlife Foundation, 5945 County Road 346, Silt, 81652, any time of the year. To learn more, log onto

Thanks to all you animal lovers for your contributions to the Foundation.
