By Staff | Mar 22, 2024


There is still time to donate to Achieva Credit Union’s dog food donation drive called Paws for-a-Purpose. The drive ends on National Puppy Day, Saturday, March 23.

Each Achieva branch is accepting dog-friendly donations, including any brand of unopened dog food (dry and canned), blankets, towels and sheets and pet safe cleaning supplies.

The Achieva Credit Union offices in Cape Coral are at 2127 Del Prado Blvd., S., 239-574-4707 and 3031 S.W. Pine Island Road, 239-471-3564.

Anyone dropping off donations on National Puppy Day, Saturday, March 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at an Achieva branch will receive a puppy water bottle and a dog treat, while supplies last.

In addition, Achieva will match community donations up to 500 pounds.

Achieva’s Colonial Boulevard branch has also partnered with Gulf Coast Humane Society to help shelter dogs and animals to find their forever homes.

“The goal is to raise awareness among our members and encourage them to consider adopting a pet through this initiative,” said Achieva Branch Development Manager Floriana Haddaway. “By helping shelter animals find loving homes, we can make a lasting difference in their lives, like Lucy, and bring joy to our members as well.”

Achieva Credit Union welcomes dogs in the workplace and employees are encouraged to bring in their furry friends.

“We are proud to be a dog-friendly workplace and look forward to a successful donation drive because of our generous employees, our members and community friends,” said Achieva’s Market President, Susan Lacey. “While hunger in America is an ongoing issue, we don’t often think about the impact of animals without enough food, especially the dogs in local shelters.”

Donations from Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties will be distributed to local pet shelters including Gulf Coast Humane Society, Cape Coral Animal Shelter, Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue, Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County and others.
