PAWED’s Finishing Touches Campaign is definitely in the finishing stretch with over $190,000 raised as of August 4, 2014. There is still a great opportunity to double your donation for canine turf using matching funds from a local business through Crowdrise. We could still use funds for the special cat condos that minimize stress and risk of infectious disease. All of the other Finishing Touches items are pretty much funded already – our donors are amazing – THANK YOU

To honor a beloved pet, Donor Tiles are still available and you can still become a Silver, Gold or Platinum Paw donor. Naming opportunities are also still available. Don’t forget to check out pictures of the shelter progress on our website and pictures and commentary on Bullet’s Blog.

Granade, working on this project.
