If you go through a lot of aluminum cans, you have few disposal options: throw them away or recycle them. But there’s another option many people don’t realize. You can donate them to a cause.

Cans for Kritters is an organization that collects those aluminum cans and uses the money they raise from recycling to help people afford to spay and neuter their pets.

The organization has bins located all throughout Alabama where people can come drop off cans.

Cans for Kritters works with Mercy Animal Hospital and other veterinarians who spay and neuter animals whose owners could not afford the surgery otherwise.

The organization is hosting its third annual anniversary celebration Saturday at CL Salon in Northport. This event will have live music and a shot clinic for animals who need their vaccines. There will be many other fun activities as well.

“We’re going to have a bouncy house, and face painting, and rock painting, and we’re going to have amazing food, and a silent auction,” said president of Cans for Kritters Darlene Richardson.

For more information on how you can help out this organization, you can visit Cans for Kritters Facebook page.
