Prince William Humane Society Woof Trax Shoe Collection Drive September 15 - November 15, 2016 

Do you have shoes you’ve never really worn taking up space in your closet? Are there tennis shoes that are too small for your son’s feet but with life still in them lingering under his bed? Would you be willing to donate these shoes to charity so someone in a developing nation who can’t afford shoes can have a pair to wear to school, work or to safely walk down the street? 

Prince William Humane Society is participating in the nationwide Woof Trax Shoe Collection Drive to raise funds for their new No Tails Left Behind Adopt Shop. Prince William Humane Society will earn funds based on the number of pairs collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated goods. Those dollars will benefit the homeless pets of Prince William County who will be housed and cared for at the new No Tails Left Behind Adopt Shop. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at local drop sites listed on the flyer below.  Click here to read the full press realease.

Current Paw Keepers clients can give us a call and we'll be happy to come to your home to pick up and drop off your donated shoes. To schedule a pick-up call (703) 445-8090 or email

PS:  Hooray!  J. F. Pattie Sr. Elementary and A. Henderson Elementary have joined the cause as collection locations!
