PAWS For Reflection 8/03/2015

Back to school?  Moving into a dorm?  New apartment?  Shop first at PAWS 2nd Chance Resale for school items, such as paper, printers, notebooks, clothing.  For your dorm or a new apartment, many choices of dishes, glasses, flatware, linens, towels, bath items, small appliances, desks, cookware, picture frames, and much more. 

You can’t beat the selection or prices, and you will help save a life.  Did we tell you that all summer clothing prices have been slashed?  $1 each for summer shirts, shorts, and capris!

This is short notice, but we want you to come join us Wednesday, Aug. 5th, 5-8 pm at Firehouse Subs in Cape Girardeau.  Located at 3047 William Street (in the former Barnes & Noble building in front of West Park mall), they have generously agreed to host a fundraising event for PAWS that evening.  The menu is varied and creative, the reviews are great, and we gotta eat, right?  Come have supper with us, and you’ll be helping us toward our goal of building a new facility.

To remind you—there are a couple of ways shopping can help PAWS, too.  First, enroll your Kroger Plus shopping card by logging onto www.kroger.com/communityrewards.  Choose PAWS NPO # 10673 as the organization you want to support. Then, each and every time you use your Kroger Plus shopper card at any Kroger store, you will be helping save a life.

Next, shop Amazon! The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible AmazonSmile items to PAWS!   Here, you can support PAWS by simply logging on to http://smile.amazon.com/ch/37-1341598 to do your shopping. If you have problems with either of these, let us know and we’ll try to help. 

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!

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

PAWS For Reflection 7/20/2015

Let’s take on a more serious note this week.  PAWS Place Adoption Center has received calls over the past several weeks asking us to take literally hundreds of kittens.  We have accepted as many as we possibly could, and have had to say “no” to the rest. 

Remember, as a no-kill facility, we can only take animals in as we have space, and new space is only made by adopting animals out.  We get that punch-in-the-stomach feeling every time we have to say we have no room, because we know the fate of those kittens and their mothers is hardly ever a happy ending.

We ask again.  Please spay or neuter your companion animals!  Yes, a good many of our callers say the mama and her kittens are strays.  They are kind enough to feed and care for the female until kittens appear.  Is it easier for them to deal with one litter after another, or making a small sacrifice to get mom spayed?

We must reduce these numbers of unwanted babies, precious, innocent, loving babies.  It is shameful that we don’t seem to even be making a dent in the pet overpopulation when some of the largest cities in this country have reached 0 kill of healthy animals in all their shelters.  You can have that kind of impact in our communities, too.  If you choose to.

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!

Call or write to us at 139 E. Vienna St., Anna, IL, 62906; ph: 618-833-DOGS (3647); pawspaws.org; and facebook.  Keep PAWS in mind!

PAWS For Reflection 6/29/2015

Just a couple of days left to take advantage of our observance of June as Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month.  PAWS Place Adoption Center has reduced the adoption fee for adult cats three years and older to $50 through Saturday, July 4th. All are spayed or neutered, microchipped, dewormed, up-to-date on their vaccinations, and ready to bring joy to your life.

Remember, just becoming a kitty’s new guardian can bring you a lifetime of health and emotional benefits.  Stroking a cat lowers blood pressure, nurturing a cat increases your sense of well-being, and living with a cat staves off loneliness and provides amusement for you.

PAWS Place Adoption Center has a wide array of feline therapists ready to purr your troubles away, and now is the time.  Come by for a dose of relaxation therapy today!

If you haven’t reserved your pork butt for you and your family for the 4th of July holiday weekend, or forgot, or didn’t get a call, we may still have some left for you.  Contact PAWS Place at 833-3647 to check on availability. Pick-up dates are at PAWS Place Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week from 2-6 pm. The pork is already pulled and in a roasting pan for you for $35.  BBQ sauce will also be available.  Hurry!

Shop at PAWS 2nd Chance Resale first for all your family’s needs.  Shopping with us actually helps save precious lives.  All summer shirts have been reduced to $2 each, and all t-shirts are now $1.  We also just got in brand new PAWS logo t-shirts in coral and lime.  Better come see!

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!

PAWS For Reflection 7/13/2015

Hey!  Did you see Karee on WSIL 3’s Pet of the Week segment for PAWS?  She was on last Thursday with our Pet of the Week, did a great job, and may be on again this Thursday to speak about our animals, our work, and our plans for the future.

Saturday and Sunday, July 18-19, is the “Sit, Stay, Drink” fundraiser for PAWS, sponsored by StarView Vineyards in Cobden.  We’ll be there with puppies and t-shirts and our quilt raffle tickets, and lots of information about what we do, how we do it, and where we plan to go from here.  We are so appreciative to StarView for supporting us and allowing us the opportunity to visit and share with you. 

Shop at PAWS 2nd Chance Resale first for all your family’s needs.  Shopping with us actually helps save precious lives.  All summer shirts are $2, and all t-shirts are now $1.  We have new PAWS logo t-shirts in coral and lime.  And, we have a whole section of home décor, candles, knick-knacks, etc., on clearance for 50% off.  Better come see!

And, always, always adopt, don’t shop, for your new best friend and family member.  There are so many dear, sweet dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens waiting for their forever home and their special someone. Could that be you?  Visit PAWS Place Adoption Center in Anna for the answer.

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!

PAWS For Reflection 6/15/2015

In observance of June as Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month, PAWS Place Adoption Center is reducing the adoption fee for adult cats three years and older to $50 through Saturday, July 4th.  A lifetime of health and emotional benefits just for becoming a kitty’s new guardian awaits you!   

Consider a pair; PAWS has several sibling groups that will do well together and will provide twice the smiles and purr therapy you need.  Maybe you could help an older friend or family member adopt an adult cat for their wonderful companionship and relatively easier care. Lots of kittens, too.  Check them out at pawspaws.org.  All are spayed or neutered, microchipped, dewormed, up-to-date on their vaccinations, and ready to bring joy to your life.

Clinton Anderson’s “Walkabout Tour” in Duquoin is this weekend! This is one of the grandest horse enthusiast’s events ever.  Learn the Method, his quiet and step-by-step approach to becoming a better horseman.  His method, his quietness in training, his nearly instant connection with the horses he sees is very special. You won’t want to miss this opportunity.

Also on tap soon is our annual Fourth of July Pork Butt sale.  We have pick-up dates at PAWS Place July 1, 2, & 3.  If you have ordered before, we’ll be in touch to get this year’s order, or you can contact PAWS Place or any board member to have one roasted to perfection for you and your family for the holiday weekend. The pork is already pulled for you for $35 each this year.

Remember to shop at PAWS 2nd Chance Resale first for all your family’s needs.  Our inventory of items changes with your every visit, and shopping with us helps save lives.  If you haven’t visited recently, you might not know that all summer shirts have been reduced to $2 each.  Come quick!

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!
