Remember we talked about the 5300 lives saved and rehomed since the opening of PAWS Place Adoption Center? Well, we just finished last year’s statistics, and over 900 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens passed through our doors over just the past 3 years, with nearly 900 adoptions during that same period.  We adopted animals to no less than 23 states in just those three years.

It is truly amazing what power there is in utilizing internet to share our babies’ stories and pictures. There is no greater exposure, no greater venue for getting these animals adopted than the outlets we utilize, Petfinder.com, Adopt-A-Pet.com, our own website, pawspaws.org, is and our facebook site.  We have adopted animals from New York to California and many, many places in between, thanks to these websites. 

We really look forward to seeing you at our annual Good Friday Fish Fry this Friday, March 25th, 5 to 8 pm at Lou’s Room in Anna. It’s always an evening of great food, great fun, and great friends.  We’ll have PAWS shirts available, and for those of you who haven’t visited the store lately, our precious Mona Lisa now has her own banner t-shirts, too.


We’ll also be having the drawing for the YETI 20 qt. softside cooler that evening, too.  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 that evening.  You can see this prize and get your chances now at PAWS 2nd Chance Resale.  You don’t have to be present to win, but we hope you are!


We want to again to offer our 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!


Spay/Neuter/Adopt companion animals and keep PAWS in mind.  Call or write to us at 139 E. Vienna St., Anna, IL, 62906; ph: 618-833-DOGS (3647); pawspaws.org; and facebook.com/PAWSAnna
