King Center collects pet food and supplies for shelter animals

This holiday season, the world’s favorite feline – Garfield – is giving back to cats (and dogs!) in need. Through the Dec. 10 performance of A Garfield Christmas, the King Center will be collecting pet food and supplies at the ticket office. All items will be donated to Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services, which provides shelter and support for animals including food, spay/neuter, medications, wellness, and vaccinations.

Anyone who brings a pet food or pet supply donation to the King Center ticket office will receive $5 off one ticket to the December 10 performance of A Garfield Christmas. Bring your donation to the ticket office window representative to receive your $5 off ticket discount. One discount is available per ticket, and is not valid on previously purchased tickets. The discount cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions.

Everyone can participate. You don’t have to come to the show to donate. All food donations may be dropped off at the King Center ticket office, 3865 N. Wickham Road, Melbourne, during hours of operation: noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.

All pet items will be accepted, but here are some recommended items from the BCSO Animal Services Wish List:

  • Friskies Pate: Turkey and Giblets
  • Snuggie Disks
  • Fleece Blankets
  • Tube Socks
  • White Rice

About A Garfield Christmas

A Garfield Christmas comes alive with a talented cast and crew gathered from across the country. This Garfield musical features 20 song and dance numbers with a mixture of original compositions and holiday classics. Everyone’s favorite feline is a few gifts short of true Christmas spirit. But with the help of Jon, Odie, the Audience, and his new holiday friends, Garfield gets an “enlightening” lesson. This lively holiday musical features timeless Christmas favorites such as “Jingle Bells,” “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” “Deck the Halls," plus four original songs. Sing along as Garfield’s new friends including Nutcracker, Rag Doll, Teddy Bear, and even Angel from the top of the Christmas tree all work together to bring light to Garfield’s Christmas. Join the fun as the coffee-guzzling, nap-taking, lasagna-loving fat cat Garfield decks the halls with boughs of folly!
