As part of a collaborative relief effort being organized by Granite State Dog Recovery (GSDR), a Windham business will help collect supplies for animals impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
Woof it Down, a local dog food and accessories store, will take donations during regular store hours.
GSDR issued the following message in a release:
At GSDR, our hearts go out to all of those who were in (Sandy's) destructive path.
We, at GSDR would like to rally our amazing, caring and generous community of followers to gather much needed items for Sandy’s lost/found and in-need animals.
A list of items have been provided by GSDR and are as follows

The items will be driven by members of GSDR straight to the animal shelters that were impacted in New York.
