The winter months are coming, like it or not, and they can be grueling for some.  Often forgotten are the animals that don't yet have a warm home to snuggle up in.  TAMC has joined forces with some area businesses in an effort to bring supplies to both the Central Aroostook Humane Society in Presque Isle and Halfway Home Pet Rescue in Caribou.  It's called "Pitch in for the Paws."
