Help Out Animals In Need!

Hi everyone!

I am currently a student at Penn State and in a particularly interesting Management class that has tasked me with collecting cans for Centre County Paws, a non-profit animal shelter in State College, PA. With everything going on in the world, it is easy to forget about our furry friends in need. Shelters everywhere have been struggling to provide enough food and generate enough adoptions to keep themselves operating. It is now my mission to make a difference.

 Over the last few years this creative professor, Neil Fogarty, has taken it upon himself to facilitate the collection of thousands of cans by inciting motivation and drive into his students. The impact has been so great that he has actually become a bit of a local legend and saved countless animal lives in process. 

Even a single dollar will buy more than a can of food for a dog or cat in need.
