At Always Buying Scrap, we believe in sharing the many blessings that have been bestowed upon us. We service some local non-profits by helping them turn scrap into revenue for their programs.
In addition to trapping, spaying/neutering, and releasing feral & cast-away cats, we feed a feral cat colony 7 days a week including holidays and Sundays. We support Independent Animal Rescue through contributions and donations of cages, traps, and bowls that come in as scrap.
Always Buying Scrap, Inc. has made an earnest effort to support families affected by the 9-11 tragedy in NYC through 911justice.org.
Our involvement in the community extends to university fund-raising events where ABS has donated dozens of vehicles throughout the years.
We really mean it when we say “what goes around comes around.”
Always Buying Scrap provided a sponsorship to Independent Animal Rescue (IAR) in the Great Human Race in Durham. The run is the largest collaborative fundraising event in the Triangle, benefiting hundreds of nonprofits. In its 22nd year, the Great Human Race is a five kilometre event that this year began and ended at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Runners and walkers followed a route through the gentle hills of the Forest Hills neighborhood, with the last leg on the American Tobacco Trail before returning to the Bulls Stadium. The race is a certified and timed 5K competitive run and walk. The Great Human Race has raised over $3 million since its inception in 1996. Although registered runners are not permitted to have dogs on the course, the Independent Animal Rescue group had a runner, Deb Eveland, who carried the flag for IAR.
Deb thanked Always Buying Scrap for its donation to her fundraising page and to IAR in the Great Human Race, saying she really appreciated their support. “We had a great day, and it was good to be out there with other IAR volunteers – and some dogs too – and know that so many people like you are working together to improve the lives of cats and dogs in our community.” Aside from their sponsorship of IAR, Always Buying Scrap has a rescue kitty that looks after their office (top left).
