Farmington Hills, Ferndale, and Waterford, MI – Paws for Life Rescue is accepting donations of lightly worn shoes at their adoption events, as well as other various drop-off locations, starting now through June 15, 2016. Funds2Orgs will purchase donated shoes from Paws for Life, directly funding care to animals in need.

Funds2Orgs redistributes the donated shoes to developing nations to help impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses throughout Central America and Africa.

Chamber_AD2_rainbowrunPaws for Life Executive Director Courtney Protz-Sanders says the partnership with Funds2Orgs is a great opportunity to help two great causes.

“Paws for Life is always looking for creative ways to raise money for the animals,” Protz-Sanders said. “This is a campaign that not only directly saves the lives of animals in our community, it also helps communities around the world.”

Donors can drop off pairs of shoes at any of the following locations during open hours:

  • Metro North Federal Credit Union, 4594 Pontiac Lake Rd, Waterford Twp, MI 48328
  • Petco, 29335 Orchard Lake Rd, Farmington Hills, MI 48334
  • Found Sound Records, 234 West 9 Mile, Ferndale, MI 48220
  • K-9 Specialties, 31936 Mound Rd, Warren, MI 48092garden16_carol_jackson

Shoes should be in good condition, meaning that the soles are intact, they have laces (if necessary), there are no holes, they are dry and clean, and that they still have life left in them. Paws for Life Fundraising Coordinator Sarah Roughley says the shoe drive is a win-win situation for donors.

“We love this fundraising program because it doesn’t cost people anything,” Roughley said. “This campaign will bring in the money needed to save lives, but also helps people clean out their closets and attics of shoes they don’t need or want anymore.”
