You can keep a shelter animal warm this winter while it waits for its new owner by donating a blanket to the Southold Town Animal Shelter in Peconic.

Light blankets and sheets are optimal, since they can be easily cleaned, the shelter said in a press release this week.

The shelter said it can always use your retired towels, too.

Filled blankets, cotton or down, will not be accepted since they are too messy when torn up. Electric blankets will also not be taken because of the wires in them.

The shelter is located at 165 Peconic Lane.
