Animal Humane Society is excited to be one of the 15 humane societies across the country that will benefit from the July Paws-a-thon campaign through Mister Car Wash, which has 13 Metro locations.
The 2011 Mister Car Wash Paws-a-thon fundraising campaign will help local Humane Society and Rescue League organizations through in-store donations. To donate, customers can purchase a paw in $1, $5 or $10 amounts. The paper paws will have the donor's name written on it and will be displayed on Mister Car Wash walls during the month of July. Customers who purchase a paw will also receive an exclusive offer of savings on their next car wash. The first Paws-a-thon took place in 2010 and raised $48,565 in total.
“The event we created gives our customers, car washes, lube centers and our corporate office here in Tucson the opportunity to work together and make an impact assisting the animal shelters within our communities. We were overjoyed with not only our results, but with the feedback we received from our customers and the donation recipients. We knew we had to keep this new tradition going,” says Ron Peterson, Chief Executive Officer.
The following organizations will benefit from Paws-a-thon 2011:
