The Animal Protective Foundation thanks the Glenville Police Department for their assistance in stopping a series of thefts of redeemable bottles and cans that had been donated to help us care for homeless animals.
Redeemables were taken from the drop-off shed at our Maple Avenue shelter on numerous occasions over the past several months. With the help of APF surveillance cameras, Glenville Police last night made an arrest in the case. The value of the stolen bottles and cans has not been determined.
Bottle and can donations provided more than $20,000 in revenue for our not-for-profit humane society last year, helping us house, feed and provide medical care to nearly 1,400 companion animals as they awaited placement in their Forever Homes.
We greatly appreciate these donations and hope that animal lovers in Schenectady County and across the greater Capital Region will continue to keep APF in mind when deciding what to do with their redeemables. Our drop-off shed is located outside our Spay/Neuter Clinic at our Maple Avenue location. The APF has two other locations which accept redeemables for the benefit of the homeless pets at the APF.
