EAST PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Cullinan Properties Ltd. and the Levee District are hosting the 2nd annual pet supply drive to benefit TAPS No-Kill Animal Shelter in Pekin and ARK Humane Society in Lacon.

Items requested include cat food, dog food, cat litter, dog toys, and cleaning supplies.

“We wanted to create a drive that brought some awareness to the needs of our local pets that our shelters are working very hard to find them all homes,” said Anaise Berry, director of marketing and communications at Cullinan Properties.
