The Edmonton Humane Society (EHS) is offering a chance for Edmontonians to purge their piggy banks of pennies, while helping pets in need.
The Pennies for Pets campaign will officially start Thursday – and EHS is hoping to collect at least 500,000 pennies, worth $5,000.
The money will go to help care for seriously injured homeless pets that EHS takes in – such as 2-month old shepherd mix puppy Peggy.
The puppy was hit by a car, and suffered serious injuries before she was brought to the EHS’ shelter animal hospital more than a week ago.
The Pennies for Pets campaign will continue until December 31 – anyone wishing to donate can drop off their pennies at the Edmonton Humane Society (13620 163 Street), more information can be found online.
