"1000 More Stories Raffle"

Every rescued animal comes with its own unique story.
What many share is their stop at Placing Paws on their  journey to a forever home. With your support, we have the chance to improve the lives of homeless pets. While our foster families provide pets with the nurturing and loving homes they need to recover and prepare for  adoption, donations from our community fuel each pet’s recovery with specialized medical care, food and training.
Every day we remember the feelings of joy and accomplishment that accompanied our 1,000th adoption in 2013 – a fete made possible by the support of Placing Paws’ community of donors, adoptive & foster families, and volunteers.

Joining in our excitement, an anonymous donor contributed a $1,000 cash prize to our summer raffle which helped us to raise
$7,254.51 in 2013 and again $7,339.73 in 2014.  
This summer we have the opportunity to run our 1000 More Stories summer raffle
with a third $1,000 anonymous donation!
Your generous gifts will continue to provide vital medical funding, food and supplies to Placing Paws as we continue our mission.
With your help we can continue to rescue and rehabilitate hundreds more cats and dogs.
