The Animal Care Sanctuary and Gannon Associates Insurance are teaming up to make sure all of the cats and dogs are well-taken care of this winter and we’re asking you for help to collect some of the supplies that help them do all the great things that they do! 

Animal Care Sanctuary cares for over 700 animals annually who come from overrun shelters, areas hit by disaster, owner surrenders, as well as abandoned, mistreated or animals with special needs. An adoption rate of 91% means ACS adopts out over 600 animals each year, making room to save hundreds of more lives. Animals not adopted right away get the time and care they need until their forever home is found.  Stop by the Animal Care Sanctuary Wellsboro location at 11765 US 6, Wellsboro, PA across from Weis Market to visit their adoptable cats and dogs! Open Tuesdays, Wednesdays-Sundays 12pm-4pm and Wednesdays 12pm-7pm, closed on Mondays.

Here are some of the items that the Animal Care Sanctuary is in need of:

  • Purina One Dry and Canned Dog Food
  • Purina One Tender Selects Dry Cat Food
  • Friskies Pate Canned Food
  • Dog and Cat Enrichment Toys
  • Printer Paper
  • Ink Cartridges for HP LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw Printer
  • Bleach
  • Paper Towels
  • Garbage Bags
  • 256 Kennel Cleaner (Can be purchased at
  • Gift Cards
  • Rockwell’s Farm and Feed Store Gift Cards

The Animal Care Sanctuary desperately needs these supplies in order to operate. That’s why we are collecting donations for Animal Care Sanctuary at the Mansfield Gannon Associates Insurance location at 12 South Main Street. If money is tight this holiday season, consider donating your time and volunteering, and last but not least, if you need a new furry friend, please go and see all the wonderful pets at the Animal Care Sanctuary. 

Animal Care Sanctuary also provides a Pet Food Pantry for anyone in the community who may be in need of dog or cat food to feed their animals. 

Jodi Wesneski of Gannon Associates Insurance initiated this idea. When asked what inspired her to put this together, she said, “The holiday season is a time to give back and help others. The cats and dogs rely on us to help them too, because they can’t take care of themselves.  We normally don’t even give it a thought about how much we feed our own pets each day, and I can’t imagine how much food and product it takes to care for as many animals as Animal Care Sanctuary cares for. Our “grand dog” was adopted at ACS and the joy he has brought us is unspeakable and due to this personal attachment, we wanted to help give back.  Our area is so fortunate to have such a wonderful organization to provide love and care to these animals until they can find their forever home.”

If you would like to join Gannon Associates Insurance in supporting Animal Care Sanctuary, just bring your donation from the list above to Gannon Associates Insurance’s Mansfield office located at 12 South Main Street and put your donations under our tree!
