Winter Paws is off to an exciting start! We have successfully collected hundreds of blankets recently for shelters in need in the Los Angeles area. We are happy so many people contributed to our mission this winter that we decided to become a non-profit organization. Mark Burton and I are looking for funds to start that process. With so many existing and wonderful animal rescue organizations already in existence, Winter Paws will continue its mission to provide infrastructure and resources to existing enterprises rather than doing rescues itself. Winter Paws will provide the following services to animal rescues and shelters: • Acquire and distribute supplies for the animals including bedding, toys and food. • Provide marketing consulting and services to shelters and rescues to increase the number of adopted and fostered animals. • To work with existing shelters to transition into “no kill” shelters. • To support advocacy for animal protection under the law including increased penalties for animal abuse and neglect. We greatly appreciate any support. No amount is too small.
