THE STORY:

The PAWSome Winter Challenge has tripled in size for 2014! We not only have the PAWSome Cardboard Challenge, but we have added so much more to create 12 hours of winter fun! Don't worry, you do not need to be there for all 12 hours. See what winter fun you like on the outline below, grab some friends and join us for whatever sparks your interest! Remember, it's about the animals and their welfare, and having some fun. But for now, we hope that you start by joining us in the 2nd Annual PAWSome Cardboard Challenge from 5-8pm on January 25, 2014

 

NEW THIS YEAR for the PAWSome Cardboard Challenge: There will be judging and prizes for the 3 Hour PAWSome Cardboard Challenge! You will have to stay within your “territory” that has been marked by the judges for the first hour of the challenge. This hour will bring awareness to the challenges that dogs face when they are left outside in extreme temperatures and how difficult it truly is to fight through it.

 

To get started...

*Create a team for the PAWSome Cardboard Challenge (only $10 registration!)

*Recruit family, friends and colleagues to join your team

*Create a personal page and a team page to showcase your mission for participating (Find that perfect pet photo to use as your profile pic!) 

*Reach out for personal sponsors 

*Raise $75, you receive a PAWS event t-shirt

      Did you know that $75 can cover the cost of altering 1 feline through the PAWS program?

*Raise $250, you receive a PAWS event t-shirt and your choice of a PAWS sweatshirt or a PAWS blanket

      Did you know that $250 can cover the cost of altering 1 dog through the PAWS program?

*Raise $1,000 you will receive a “Top Dog” Survival Package that will include a PAWS event t-shirt, sweatshirt, blanket and more!

      Did you know that $1,000 can vaccinate over 200 animals through the PAWS program?

 

The goal of this community event is to come together, in the dead of a Western New York winter, along the icy shores of Lake Ontario and thus, raise awareness for animals left out in extreme weather conditions, day after day, fighting for their lives. We are making noise for these animals who can’t help themselves. Together, let’s impact change and set these animals and their owners on the path to providing adequate shelter, food, vet care and love.
