AuCaDo Australian Cattle Dog Rescue is conducting a shoe collection drive now through November 10th, 2015 to raise funds for AuCaDo Rescue named Mya. The funds will be used for the last of three surgeries to fix Mya’s leg from a past injury.”
The AuCaDo Australian Cattle Dog Rescue is based out of Remus, Michigan, which is about 25 minutes west of Mt. Pleasant. They foster these dogs and adopt them out after they are microchipped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and evaluated. Their mission is to reduce the overwhelming amount of homeless Australian Cattle Dogs, who are often given up because of a pet owner’s lack of knowledge of the breed.
During this fundraiser, AuCaDo Rescue organization will earn funds based on the number of pairs collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated goods. Those dollars will benefit AuCaDo Rescues. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at AuCaDo Animal Protection Shelter, 3861 12 Mile Rd, Remus, MI 49340 Phone: 989-330-5147.
All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.
“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Monica R Larner, Director, “We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like donate to us and help those less fortunate become self-sufficient. It’s a win-win for everyone,” added Monica R Larner.
By donating shoes to the AuCaDo Rescue, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives.
