West Shore business raises funds for animal rescue

Cookies creates better living for four-legged friends

Two years of collecting recyclables is helping animals in need.

Cookie Taylor of Cookies Critter Care collects bottles for animal rescue and supplies.

“I’ve worked with rescues before and I don’t like the politics so I want to be a part of bringing in the money,” said Taylor. “That way I’m helping out.”

Donations over the past two years total $11,000 along with food and other pet supplies. Currently the funds go to Victoria Adoptables and Animal Crusaders.

“I do it year round. People can call or email any time and I’ll come pick up,” she said.

She does the sorting and will even swap out recycling bins if needed.

“It might only be five cents per can, but every nickle adds up,” she said. “The money all goes to a good cause, and it reduces waste.”
