The music fraternity Mu Phi Epsilon held a fundraiser from Jan. 25 through Jan. 29, to help raise money and awareness for the no kill shelter Paw Prints. Mu Phi Epsilon had a booth set up in the Student Union from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to accept donations for Paw Prints. The organization wants to be more active in the community and wants to help Paw Prints to gain exposure as well.

Paw Prints takes care of all types of animals and instead of euthanizing them, they provide veterinarian care. According to Monica Ely, “Paw Prints only has four volunteers to help take care of the animals and to help provide for the veterinarian bills.”

The fraternity is gathering volunteers and supplies to help care for the animals in need. “Volunteers are needed to care for the animals by walking, playing, and caring for them in any way possible,” Kathleen Logeston said.

The supplies that are needed to take care of the animals include: towels, sheets, dish soap, non-clumping litter, laundry detergent, blankets, toys, dry cat food, dog food, and donations to help pay the veterinarian bills.

Mu Phi Epsilon feels that it is important to get involved in the community and to raise awareness for good causes. A few students in the organization have volunteered for Paw Prints and look forward to returning with more volunteers.

Waivers to help volunteer with Mu Phi Epsilon can be found in Ziegle Hall or at Paw Prints.
