Help raise money to save a pet

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 - 12:13pm

A 10 year-old girl's mission in El Paso is to save animals.

Eleanor Ann Schoenbrun started Pennies Fur Pets back in 2011, as part of the nationwide Make a Difference Day Project.

Her fundraising efforts resulted in a donation of over $17,800 in just three years to the El Paso Animal Rescue League.

On Make a Difference Day, October 26, 2013 Eleanor and Pennies Fur Pets will host a six-hour fundraising drive that will again benefit the Animal Rescue League from 8:00am to 2:00pm at two El Paso Starbucks locations (6015-A N. Mesa St. at Sunland Park Drive - MAIN VENUE)

Eleanor simply asks, “that El Paso animal lovers stop by and donate whatever they can even if it is just pocket-change, because every penny is a step towards saving an animal’s life.”

Pennies Fur Pets is dedicated to fundraising and collecting supplies to help care for animals that are homeless and cannot help themselves. or
