WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) – The owner of A Shed Shack uses his work to help the many animal shelters in our community.

He’s asking the community to come out and help him fill the shed with pet supplies to donate to local shelters.

Carl Olin says he just wanted to do some good for these shelters and the many animals they care for.

Helping the community has always been important to Karl Olin, and he says being able to use his company, A Shed Shack, for a good cause is something he’s always wanted to do.

“We were going on a food tour but everyone else is driving the food trucks and I see a lot on Facebook and things where shelters are always asking for help, so I understood why I wouldn’t do a pet car to help local shelters,” Uline said.

That’s when he started his “Fill The Shed” donation station. It’s a shed where community members can deliver pet supplies that will go to many of the local animal shelters and are definitely needed supplies.

“Most things are cat litter, blankets, bowls of beds, and then, of course, food, but a lot of them also ask for medicine,” Olin said.

And some even ask for cleaning products and paper towels, all things Uline says he knows these shelters would be happy to receive.

“I’ve had a fair amount of feedback that they’re all very grateful, and I’m also doing this for us because that way we know these animals might eat a little better because of us,” Olin said.

Olin says the support from the community has meant a lot.

“We’ve had quite a few calls from here but also, being a company, we have friends who have friends miles away and we’ve had some people buy Amazon and other things and have them shipped from us from a hundred miles away,” Olin said.

Now he just wants to ask the community for one last round of support.

“This is our last week, we’ll finish it on Friday night when we close, so if people make a big push and get more stuff here, we appreciate that, and so do the rescues,” Olin said.

A simple donation will help our shelters get some much-needed help.

Uline says he plans to do more of these campaigns in the future and that you can drop your donation any time this week during their business hours.
