amarilloadoptapet.com | Wild Places Animal Rescue is looking for gently applied shoes to facilitate care for ill animals in Colorado and assist families in developing countries.
The shoe drive runs like this: donated shoes are obtained "of the organizations activities" by Funds2Orgs which then sells the shoes at low cost to micro-entreprenuers in developing countries. On their point, they can use the income from shoe auctions to help improve their quality of life. Funds2Orgs is a non-profit organization.
In Colorado, Wild Places Animal Rescue will use monies from donations to care for blind, deaf and chronically ill animals.
