FUNdraising - Pennies for Pets

Animal Humane Society (Golden Valley, MN)
Two teenage girls wanted to help the Animal Humane Society but they didn’t have the capacity to stage a fundraising event. So they rolled up their sleeves and took the old fashioned approach: they went door-to-door in their neighborhood, asking people to donate their spare change to help the animals at the Animal Humane Society…PENNIES FOR PETS. Pounding the pavement really paid off because these dedicated teens brought in a Rubbermaid tub of change that totaled $1,000!

Fundraising, community building, youth involvement, grassroots activism…these were all factors in helping us take care of animals!
