Teaching the importance of being
humane, environmentally conscious citizens is a worthwhile and rewarding task. Recognizing the natural bond between children and pets, many area schools and groups have added Pennies for Paws to their yearly curriculum.
This is often the first experience for many children in volunteering or giving to charity. By collecting spare pennies, nickels, and dimes, they learn that even the most humble of gestures will make a huge difference in their community.
