      Cans for Critters helps local animal shelter

      The Almost Home Animal Shelter in Dickinson County is finding new ways to raise money, including their ??Cans for Critters?? campaign. Anyone can drop off their aluminum cans outside the building which will be recycled to raise money for the shelter's needs, such as cat litter, food for the animals, and cleaning supplies. There is also a location for returnable bottles. The shelter managers said the response so far has been very positive.

      ??I??ll tell you, it's been fantastic because the money that we have been getting has been amazing,?? said employee Diane Luczak. ??I mean, almost every day when we come, there's always a supply of cans or bottles.

      The fundraising effort started earlier this summer, and shelter workers hope it continues to thrive. For more information on this program, you can visit the shelter??s website here .
