FT entrypicDear PAWED Members and Supporters,

Thanks so much to all who have supported our Finishing Touches campaign that began in late February!  We are extremely happy to report that as of July 15, we have raised a total of $180,000 of our goal of $200,000!  We’ve funded the new Animal Shelter’s  outdoor dog exercise area shade sails, large animal barn, grooming tub and table, medical equipment for the onsite spay/neuter clinic, and three deluxe New Generation cat towers for the cat colony/exercise room!  Thanks to your help, we will make a huge difference in the quality of life of the shelter animals and the functioning of the new shelter!

We are now on the final stretch to reach our goal and fully fund our two remaining items:  canine turf for the outdoor dog exercise area and the cat condos.  With only $20,000 to go, we are almost there!  If you have yet to join us in this campaign, please consider a gift now for the new shelter’s finishing touches and make a lasting impact on the lives of shelter animals.  Also, please visit our website for further information on recognition of Major Donors (Silver, Gold and Platinum PAW levels). We plan to complete this campaign by September 1, 2014!

In addition, a reminder that we have opened the sale of the personalized donor tiles! There is room for 300 tiles on the adoption hallway walls.  They are $200 each and proceeds support the Finishing Touches campaign.  You can find additional information and order your tiles on our website, or complete this Donor Tile form and we will contact you.  These tiles will add a very special personal touch to the new shelter and will be a lasting tribute to your special furry friend(s)!

The new shelter construction is proceeding ahead of schedule!  You can see updated construction photos on our website and posted by Bullet, the shelter resident cat, in BULLETS Blog.  The new shelter is expected to open in October, with a grand opening Visit Bullet's Blogcelebration scheduled for November 15, 2014—so mark your calendars!

Please join us for the last step of our Finishing Touches campaign and donate today!

Thank You!                                 Sincerely,

Charlene Welty - President PAWED
