Customers of Agway of Cape Cod helped raise $1,082 last month, which will be donated equally between two local animal welfare organizations — The Companion Animal Program and the K9 Police Relief Fund. Through the “Keep the Change” program, customers were given the opportunity to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar and donate the change to the non-profits.
The Agway of Cape Cod Charitable Foundation will hold additional “Keep the Change” fundraisers throughout the year. From March 23-26, customers will be able to donate their change to The Santana Fund. \Established by The Animal Hospital of Orleans, The Santana Fund provides crucial veterinary services to pets who are unable to receive the necessary treatment due to financial constraints. Since its inception in 2006, the Fund has raised over $90,000 and helped save the lives of over 100 pets. The Animal Hospital of Orleans matches all private donations to the Santana Fund and also makes a contribution to the fund in memory of every patient who is euthanized.
Agway of Cape Cod has locations in Dennis, Chatham and Orleans. Visit www.agwaycapecod.com for more information.
