At Buffalo Exchange, instead of offering plastic bags, we hand out charity tokens with each purchase. This gives shoppers the opportunity to donate 5 cents (the cost of a plastic bag) to one of three local non-profits through our Tokens for Bags® program. In our Phoenix, Arizona store, shoppers have the chance to sponsor the Home ‘Fur’ Good Animal Shelter.
Home ‘Fur’ Good History
Maricopa County once had the second highest animal euthanasia rates in the country. In 2009, animal welfare advocates took a stand on this issue by establishing the Home ‘Fur’ Good Animal Shelter. This no-kill shelter provides animals a sanctuary until they find their furever home and educates the public on proper spaying and neutering practices.
A Good Life
Adoption can be a stressful experience for humans and animals alike. To help the animals relax, Home ‘Fur’ Good is equipped with a great play yard. The yard provides the perfect place for animals to socialize, exercise and introduce themselves to potential adopters. The non-profit also provides wholesome living spaces, yummy food, medical care, exercise and endless love to the animals in its shelter.
Shopping at Buffalo Exchange is only one way in which Phoenix residents can help these animals. Brighten up your life with the adorable furry faces at Home ‘Fur’ Good Animal Shelter! Visit the organization’s website to find out how to donate, volunteer or adopt today.
Keeping Pets Healthy
If you already own a pet, Home ‘Fur’ Good offers low-cost dental and vaccine clinics, as well as cat behavioral classes. These clinics are particularly amazing because every dollar raised through them goes back into caring for the animals. You can show your support while keeping your pet healthy and safe at the same time!
