FORT WALTON — Two Men and a Truck Fort Walton/Destin ran its inaugural Movers for Mutts fall campaign — a collection drive to provide essential pet-care items to local shelters – from September through November.
Stray pets across America live in shelters without the love of a caring family and many times without every day essentials such as food or water. These animal shelters need help fostering and supporting these pets.
The number of pets residing in animal shelters is truly astounding. According to ASPCA, 7.6 animals enter shelters nationwide. Another statistic from Petfinder states that between five and nine million animals are euthanized each year, while only two percent of cats and 15-20 percent of dogs are returned to their owners.
To assist the animal shelters that provide and care for these animals, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK partnered with the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).
PAWS is a private, non-profit organization that is dedicated to the welfare of animals and presently handles more than 7,000 animals annually. The vet clinic is now in its 17th year. Since opening in January 1995, the clinic has sterilized over 48,000 animals, according to a press release from the moving company.
Approximately 200 donations were delivered to PAWS located at 752 Lovejoy Rd. on November 20.
