Paws for a Cause: PAWS
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED PAWS!
Starting June 10, 2013 in honor of Pet Appreciation Week (PAW), the Humane Society & SPCA of Hancock County launched a pilot campaign called PAWS where local businesses were asked to ask their customers to support for our shelter by purchasing paper PAWS for a minimum contribution of $1.00. The pilot ran through July 7, 2013. A great success, it raised $1818.95 with 909 of PAWS being sold at 28 different local business locations.
One hundred percent of the funds raised stayed right here in HancockCounty to support our shelter and the animals in our care while they await their “Forever Home.”
People had great fun writing their names, or the names of their beloved pets, on PAWS and displaying them at local businesses. Although the minimum contribution was $1.00, the community generously often gave more than that. One PAW sold for $100.00!
Look for PAWS where you do business in HancockCounty in June 2014!
