Oakland Park Elementary – Penny Harvest

Oakland Park Elementary – Penny Harvest

ADOPT Pet Rescue had the distinct honor of being the recipient of funds raised by Oakland Park Elementary School in their 2014 Penny Harvest fundraiser. Monday, Kira and Kody (an ADOPT save from 6.5 years ago) met with 300 students and ADOPT was presented with a check for over $1000! We’re amazed that the students were able to raise this money and then chose us as their recipient. We are very grateful for the generosity demonstrated by the Oakland Park’s students and look forward to putting this hard earned money to good use saving more dogs. Thank you so much for this wonderful donation!

This year we will also be selling jewelry, so while people are waiting in line to take their pet picture with Santa, they can also holiday shop!  Additionally,if you make anything that you think would also be great to sell as part of our fundraiser – and are willing to give the proceeds to A.D.O.P.T. Pet Rescue – please contact Joy about that!

If you are unable to volunteer, but may be able to stop by with your pet, we encourage you come and have their picture taken with Santa! It makes a great holiday card to send out to family and friends! Please also pass along this event to other family and friends that might be interested!

All proceeds from Santa Pics and jewelry sales will go to A.D.O.P.T. Pet Rescue and to helping all of the adorable animals we bring in throughout the year!

Opportunity #2: PetSmart Food Pick-up
The second volunteer opportunity in December is the last food pick-up from PetSmart Warehouse for 2013.  This will take place on December 11th at 12:30 PM.  Volunteers will meet at the A.D.O.P.T. Pet Rescue storage unit to help an A.D.O.P.T. Board Member organize and clean out our unit. You will then all carpool together to the PetSmart Warehouse between 1:30 and 1:45 PM (remember to take an ID for entrance to the warehouse) then help load and unload food there and then back at the A.D.O.P.T Pet Rescue storage unit.
