Donate to Local Animal Shelter & Rescue: Reduce, Reuse & Recycle Old Newspaper for a Good Cause

Nothing says "Good Morning" then being greeted by Fido with Bark Street Journal in mouth and the fresh aroma of coffee beans in the air. Dogs love to fetch and sometimes chew the daily headlines. Bone-Appetit !! But dogs are not the only ones that enjoy a good read. We all love reading the daily news and get a huge chuckle out of the funnies.

But, before you eco-warrior's, two paws up by the way, start tossing out yesterday's news in the recycling bin to give that stack a new leash on life. Lets press the pause button for a second! Perhaps your retired newspaper has more life in it yet and can serve another eco-friendly purpose. Here's some treat for thought, consider donating your stack to a good cause & support your local animal shelter or rescue. Not only is this a great way to reduce, reuse, recycle to help the environment and save trees. You also get that warm fuzzy feeling of helping deserving pets in needs and knowing that you made a difference. Regardless of how big or small the stack every bit matters.

Local Animal Shelters are always in need of clean newspaper to line cat & puppy pins and cages. Now that stack of newspaper that has been cluttering your dining room can breath new life. So check with your local animal shelter on the best time to drop off your collection of old newspaper. So all you clutter bugs, de-clutter and go green !!

But while you are being a good dog humanitarian go a step further and donate your time by volunteering or give monetarily. Animal shelters are always in need of a helping paw. However, for those looking to add a new addition to your family look no further. While you are there take time to meet & greet some of the most adorable & deserving shelter animals on the planet for possible adoption. Not only are you lowering your carbon paw print you will also be saving a life. Adopting an animal is the ultimate form of recycling!!
