Puppy Love Caring Canines, Inc. has two primary fundraising activities. Our Wag-N-Wheel Walk is a family-oriented event held during the summer that includes a walk, demonstrations, a raffle or silent auction, and door prizes. If you'd like to become a vendor at our next Wag-N-Wheel Walk click HERE.

Our second activity is Pop Tops for Puppy Love. This can be an ongoing fundraising event at your school or business.




Each year "Minnesota Good Sam" camping chapters have a competition for the most aluminum pop tabs. These pop tabs are then sold to benefit their favorite charities. One chapter, Northern Lights Sam, managed to solicit the support of two local elementary schools and won the last three years!

Demonstrations at the schools of the abilities of Puppy Love trained dogs really motivated the students. The results of involving school children in such a visible charity were fantastic and resulted in 300-400 pounds of "Pop Tops for Puppy Love" each year!! There are approximately 1,520 pop tabs to a pound and sells for about $.70/lb. Although they weigh little, they can really add up!
