Kids Helping Cats

Coins for Cats and Cans for Cats: two easy ways for children of all ages to help the big cats! 


coinsforcats.jpgCoins for Cats! I recently emptied a little piggy bank I throw all my change in when I come home. It wasn’t even full, maybe half so. It added up to $106! That little bit of effort ended up being a nice chunk of change. I gave it to Yogie and Friends. This is a neat way for kids to be able to help the animals with very little effort.  

Cans for Cats! Kids can also help by collecting cans and taking them to the local recycling center for cash and this can also add up to a nice piece of change for the cats. It’s something kids can do to help go green and help the cats all at once.

Inkjet and Toner Cartridge Recycling

You can bring cartridges with you when you visit the sanctuary, but
remember – we are only open Saturdays from April through October

Business Supporters: We need you! It’s simple and FREE!

Here’s how it works:  Stick our pre-paid shipping labels to boxes you already have in your office to ship your used printer cartridges and cell phones to our recycling program and we will receive credit towards our fundraising goals.  Help us reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and cardboard by reusing boxes!

Request labels  (or more information) by emailing Yogie and Friends Staff:

We earn a bonus for shipments of eight or more laser cartridges!
Please ship several cartridges in one box whenever possible!
