Albany- Monday was the official kick-off of the Pennies for Puppies campaign.

The businesses are trying to raise at least one million pennies to donate the Albany Humane Society to fund spay and neuter programs.

Donna Strickland, of the Albany Humane Society says that over 6,000 cats and dogs are put down at the center each year. She also says since the spay and neuter program is now available to anyone, not just those who can't afford it, the money will be a great help.

The effort to raise 10,000 dollars will run until March.

If you want to make a donation just stop by any of the three Albany Bank and Trust locations or the humane society.  You can also drop your change into any of the buckets located at the following 11 businesses:

Custom Interiors
Fast Copy
Stardust II Carwash
Lighthouse Liquors (coming soon)
South Georgia Brick
Albany Travel
Albany Winnelson
Stardust II Skating
Flint Office Furniture
