BENEFITING: PONTOTOC ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY
P.A.W.S. needs your help in order to continue providing veterinary services and shelter for these furry friends. The goal is to get the animals healthy and into a loving home. Most of the staff are over -worked and underpaid, but they care deeply for these animals. More animals show up everyday, they are the only animal shelter in a 40 mile radius, covering much of southern central Oklahoma.
The facilities have potential to provide excellent care for the animals, but it takes a lot to maintain. They are in need of: consistent animal food, proper grooming equipment, an actual computer (!), industrial washer and dryer, among other daily necessities.
I've seen how great this place is for the community by giving local teens a place to volunteer and do something positive. Lately they've been swamped and can't keep up, and volunteers aren't being trained fast enough. If the place becomes unkept, the animals will get sick, and they won't get adopted. Even if you can't donate monetarily, volunteers are needed Tues-Sunday to walk dogs and pet cats. Please help with whatever you can give!
