  • Invite readers to save &/or share your Keepsake ads about the cats & dogs
  • Call us into Action with all the ways folks can proactively help:  get their own pets spayed/neutered & how to get PAWS’ spay-neuter vouchers; proactively foster roaming cats or dogs; post “Lost” or “Found” cats & dogs on FB & other social media:  maybe even tell us how to electronically post (or recommend that we recruit a child to show us <smile>)
  • Share your own &/or PAWS’ Wish List about what you most need
  • PAWS spayed / neutered 14,000+ dogs & cats since 2004.  In 2015, PAWS fixed 424 pet cats, 235 dogs & 373 community cats.  100% volunteers & funded only by individual donors.  PAWS’ expenses between $6K-$7K / mo.
