In honor of my 8th year running the Akron Half Marathon, I am raising funds to support the volunteers efforts of Paws & Prayers.
As a Paws & Prayers Foster, I am passionate about the work we do. Our volunteers are some of the most dedicated, selfless and united individuals I have ever met! It is such a reward to hear back from our adopters and see how successful (and cute!) our former fosters are in their new homes.
Learn more about Paws & Prayers at www.pawsandprayers.org.
Paws and Prayers is a non-profit 501c3 organization. Our group is made up of dedicated foster homes that care for our dogs and cats until forever homes can be found. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home unwanted dogs and cats; to prevent overpopulation through spay/neuter; to restore dignity, trust and quality of life for neglected, abused and homeless dogs and cats; to find the best home for each dog and cat in our care; to educate adopters and our community on pet care, spaying/neutering, training and suitable animal selection for their lifestyle; to provide a network of resources, volunteers and fosters for animals, animal shelters/pounds and the community.
