Our Mission:

PAWSibilities®, Humane Society of Greater Akron rescues and rehabilitates abused, abandoned and neglected animals of Summit County, places them in good homes, investigates and prosecutes animal cruelty, and strives to set a standard of excellence and leadership in animal care, humane education, and progressive animal welfare programs.

Approximately 5% of our funding comes from local government sources. The rest comes from private donations, grants, and adoptions from people like you. Please consider donating or adopting today!

Acme Cash Back Receipts Campaign is in full swing! Feel free to drop off those receipts to us at the shelter as we get credit for all receipts collected.

A few reminders:

Please submit the entire receipt (don't cut off the top or the bottom).

Please do not use a highlighter on the cash back amount. Highlighters smear the information and may make the receipt unusable.

Please send in receipts on a regular basis (every other week is great) rather than hold until the end.

Please ask your friends and family to collect receipts; the more the better.

This campaign will run through Sunday, January 4, 2015.
