Are you looking for a unique way to help all the needy animals in the Capital District area, then become a part of the "Empties for Animals" sorting program. With Super Bowl Sunday on the horizon, everyone is stocking up on beverages; the question is what do you plan to do with all those empties? Are you simply going to recycle them or are you going to redeem them at some supermarket, beverage center, or redemption center for the nickel deposit that you put down on them? Do you really need that nickel? Why not use all those empties to help the needy companion animals in the Capital District area?

Donate your empties to the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society's "Empties for Animals" sorting program where every redeemable bottle and can brings them seven cents. That's not only donating the five cent deposit you gave on those cans and bottles, but an additional two cents on each can and bottle that isn't costing you a single penny. The "Empties for Animals" sorting program is one of the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society's chief source of funds to support their programs, programs that not only help every needy animal-kittens, puppies, cats, dogs, bunny rabbits, et al.

"Empties for Animals" is a win-win program. The shelter wins because they receive the funds they need to carry on their programs. The needy animals win because they are able to receive the care that they so desperately need. You win because you get to make a contribution that you might not otherwise be able to make.

Take your empties to the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society shelter located at 3 Oakland Avenue in Menands, New York, five minutes from downtown Albany. Call them at (518) 434-8128 for the hours of operation. For more information you can also go to their web site
