A 7th grade leadership project turns into a national phenomenon.
"Pennies four Paws helped me contribute to animals in my community."
Jayson’s start to becoming an animal advocate was a “Pennies Four Paws” campaign in 2017, in which he raised money for “Animeals on Wheels”, which helps senior citizens keep their pets, when they might otherwise be unable to do so. This very successful fundraising drive ignited Jayson’s passion and determination. He started collecting donations for animal shelters, left by neighbors on porches throughout our county. Jayson’s organization, “Leave it for the Pooch”, was created as a result of these early efforts.
Jayson continues to develop successful food-drives and fundraising campaigns, raising thousands of dollars for rescues and for medically in-need animals.
