Alpha Media, Biloxi-Gulfport, MS., is proud to announce 107.1 The Monkey (WXYK-FM) collected over 450 toys for pets with their first annual Toys for Shelter Pets on Friday, December 15th.

Afternoon personalities, James Steele and Valerie Kattz broadcasted their show from PetSmart in Gulfport. During the broadcast James and Valerie encouraged listeners to donate a new pet toy so each of the homeless animals at the Humane Society of South Mississippi could have a new toy. In addition to the toys, pet food and cash were also donated.

107.1 The Monkey Program Director, Lucas Lloyd commented on the announcement, “We wanted to do something fun, festive and helpful for the animals at the Humane Society. I hope we have raised awareness for all the animals that need forever homes.”

“This holiday season we collected toys for local children, food for the hungry and we didn’t want to leave out our local shelter animals so we set a goal to collect 300 toys so each animal at the Humane Society of South Mississippi could have their own special toy,” remarked Kattz.
