This year we found homes for:

Guinea Pigs

Holiday Fundraisers

Thank you to everyone who ordered a stocking or got their picture taken with Santa. We had great success with both events! Our volunteers enjoyed making the stockings, it was even more fun handing them out! We enjoyed seeing all the festive pets who came to see Santa - there were many good cats and dogs this year!

Kuranda Bed Donations

Kuranda pet beds are very durable, easy to clean and comfy for pets. APAWS is now registered with Kuranda's donation program. All of our animals live in foster homes, but they still like having a bed to call their own! Our foster parents provide blankets and beds for their fosters, but these are generally difficult to clean and wear out too easily. Our foster animals and foster parents would greatly appreciate a donation of a Kuranda pet bed. Please visit http://kuranda.com/donate/5762 for information on donating a Kuranda pet bed.

Animal Rescue Site Challenge

The Animal Rescue Site will begin another shelter challenge beginning January 10, 2011. Please watch our website for more details. If you would like a daily reminder please sign up for our daily email list. To join go to this page: http://apawspets.org/list/?p=subscribe and select the apawsclicks newsletter.
