    I’m assuming this is placed strategically somewhere so that people can contribute to the local animal shelter? This is far fancier than the boxes we have here in the United States.

    I especially love the little milk bottles sitting in front of the dogs. Or are they cats? Perhaps they were going for a unisex kind of cat dog thing so as to attract people sympathetic to both. Anyway, my point is since when can cats or dogs drink out of bottles?

    The well weathered Barbie mounting the middle cat/dog looking like she just spent a wild weekend in the back of a 20-wheeler is a very nice touch too.

    Is that the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals?
    The kitties look non-plussed to have Barbie stealing the show!

    Yes Mark it is, I think it must be quite an old box, I see them quite often , sometimes they have had a really bad repaint.

    Barbie may look wild but she’s dressed to party!

    I remember charity boxes from when I was a child in the 60’s I was particularly taken with the ones of boys and girls wearing calipers on there legs collecting money for The Spastic Society as it was unfortunately called then, I used to feel sorry for them and always had to ask my mother to explain what the problem was !
