The Problem

In our community, some shelters have an overflow of pets and not enough supplies to care for them all. This leads to poorer conditions for the animals as well as higher euthanasia rates.

Our Plan

We are planning to host a pet supplies drive to raise donations for these animal shelters. Potential items to donate include food, toys, and cleaning supplies.
