“Empties for Paws Weekend” First Annual Bottle Drive Blitz February 20–21


(press release)

Empties for Paws is challenging EVERYONE to donate their empty beer, wine, liquor bottles/cans and Canadian Tire money February 20–21, 2016 to help raise funds for our furry friends. A complete list of rescues and drop-off locations is available on our website: emptiesforpaws.com. We have over 40 animal rescues listed in the Ottawa Valley, Ottawa, Gatineau and across Ontario.


Since the inception of Empties for Paws in January 2015, more than $10,000 has been raised of which over $3,600.00 has come from restaurant donations.


Empties for Paws can work anywhere. If the rescue you wish to support doesn’t collect empties, we ask you to take this opportunity to cash in your empties and donate the funds directly to your preferred rescue.


This February, share the love and donate your empties. Please help us get the word out and let’s raise some much needed funds! Please note that empties can be donated all year round and not just on Empties for Paws Weekend.
