  • Volunteer to help your furry friends
    If you are a pet lover, here is an opportunity to help your furry friends and even support the sustainability of the Alcoa pet food can business.

    As part of Alcoa’s upcoming Month of Service, volunteers are needed to help with the Furry Fall Festival being held at Knoxville’s Market Square Mall on October 26. The festival is put on by Young-Williams Animal Shelter in Knoxville. If you are interested in volunteering for this Alcoa Action Grant volunteer event, email Mollie Miller in the Knoxville Office or give her a call at 594-4996.

    Recycle your aluminum pet food cans
    By participating in Young-Williams Animal Shelter’s Furry Friends Festival, you will also support an already important local partner and a long standing commitment to the pet food market. Want to know how? The Alcoa Foundation and Pittsburgh Resources Council (PRC) is funding an initiative, “Cans for Pet”, a pet food can collection program at Knoxville’s Young-Williams Animal Shelter. PRC will pay $.50 for every clean pet food can collected and the proceeds will go to the local animal shelter to help aid homeless animals.

    It’s important to increase the recycling rate, not only for UBC’s, but also for aluminum pet food cans. Pet food can recycling rates continue to remain low in the U.S., with many consumers being unaware of the appropriate way to go about recycling them. This new recycling campaign will make it easy for pet lovers in the greater Knoxville area to aid shelter animals through responsible recycling. So recycle your aluminum pet food cans by dropping them off at Young-Williams Animal Shelter in Knoxville. You'll help our furry friends and increase the number of aluminum pet food cans recycled.

    For information, visit www.prc.org/petcan or call the Young-Williams Animal Shelter at (865) 215-6599.
