It's a start; since most rescue operations work on a shoe string, it could be a big boost for some.

Makes all the sense in the world, to help one another out, what is trash for one can be a treasure for the animal shelter! Thanks Michele.

All the best ideas are simple ideas; whoever though of this should get a bucketful of green stars. I'm going to promote it in UK - brilliant!

Thanks to all of you who commented and noted this! This idea is one of those "aha" moments. It is so obvious and so simple. Everyone involved wins, and it's great for our planet. Thanks for reading!

Networking with people who can share needs and resources is the most logical and productive way to mend our society. I was speaking to the man who runs Puffy Paws yesterday and he was saying they could use coupons... for cat food, cleaning supplies, etc. So may of us just throw these out because it doesn't fit our needs but they could do so much good if we took the time to pass them on. Please check out if you are interested in sending coupons or offering them any other assistance.
