"Popp’s for Paws” Fundraiser
Popp’s Riverwalk CITGO, with support from CITGO Petroleum Corporation has kicked off its first annual “Popp’s for Paws” fundraiser and pet food drive to support the Lakeshore Humane Society (LHS). Now through Nov. 20, customers are invited to drop off canned pet food and purchase “Popp’s Paws” for $1 and $5 at Popp’s Riverwalk CITGO located at 50 Maritime Drive, Manitowoc, Wis. All of the proceeds will go to the Lakeshore Humane Society (LHS) to provide funds for spaying and neutering, medical care, food and shelter for hundreds of homeless animals each year. As part of the “Popp’s for Paws” campaign, Popp’s Riverwalk CITGO and LHS will hold a pet adoption event on Saturday, Nov. 12 from noon to 2 p.m. People can come by and meet some of the dogs and cats who need a loving home and can also contribute to the pet food drive and the “Popp’s for Paws” campaign. The LHS fundraiser is one of many programs going on during the month of November at Popp’s Riverwalk CITGO. As part of Popp’s Annual Customer Appreciation Month, customers can receive great savings and special offers and participate in raffles and door prizes when using the Popp’s Loyalty card. Since 1971, LHS has worked to prevent cruelty to animals and advance humane education. Each year, more than 1,000 animals, primarily dogs and cats, receive care from LHS. The past year has been a particularly active year for LHS as a result of the economic downturn, with many families simply unable to afford care for their pets.
