PAWS . . . for Reflection an article by Pets Are Worth Saving, Inc. We need to remind you of our current raffle. We have a YETI 20 qt. softside cooler donated by a very generous supporter. Dads, husbands, brothers, grandpas, your best pal, all the guys will love this one. Tickets are for a donation of $1 each or 6 for $5, and the drawing will be at our annual Good Friday Fish Fry March 25, 2016. You can see this great cooler at PAWS 2nd Chance Resale.
And don’t forget to mark your calendars for the fish fry, either. That is always a great evening of great food, great fun, and great friends. We enjoy seeing our local friends and supporters and having a chance to personally thank them for their help.
During February, let’s all save lives by spaying and neutering our dogs and cats to prevent hundreds and hundreds of unwanted puppies and kittens, right here in Southern Illinois, from being killed, abandoned, and even thrown in the trash. It’s up to all of us to put a stop to this needless and preventable misery and death for these most innocent of creatures.
Many thanks to the Kroger shoppers who have chosen PAWS to receive community rewards from the Kroger Company. The more supporters that designate PAWS as their charity choice, the more Kroger will donate, at no additional cost to shoppers. You already have your Kroger shopper card, so all that’s necessary is to log in to www.Kroger.com/communityrewards, and use the PAWS ID #10673. The program applies at any Kroger, not just in Anna.
Meanwhile, if you see a companion animal in need, in trouble, or suffering, please, please call someone before it’s too late for them. Call your local animal control office, the police, the Sheriff’s Dept., and let us know, too. It IS your business if an innocent being who cannot speak for himself needs your help!
