PAWS New England is thrilled to announce that we ended 2012 with remarkable success- not one dog was euthanized at Tipton County Animals Control in December! PAWS proudly partnered with many other rescues to accomplish this amazing feat and assisted the effort by pulling 45 dogs in just 31 days. Julie Adams rescued an additional 22 dogs, making the grand total for December 2012 67 dogs rescued!
508 dogs found their loving forever home through our organization (a 7% increase from 2011!)
655 lives were saved from high kill shelters (also a 7% increase from 2011!)
PAWS spayed/neutered 556 dogs. SpayUSA estimates that this has prevented 18,626,000 unwanted animals from being born over the next six years.
909 people made 1487 donations. The average donation was $48.24.
There are great changes taking place at Tipton County Animal Control (TCAS). A new spay program was implemented as well as a new vaccine program. Since the creation of the Paws and Claws Facebook page, there has been a dramatic decrease in the number of dogs euthanized in the shelter. When PAWS first began almost seven years ago, we would never have dreamed that it was possible for an entire month to go by without a single dog being euthanized. The partnership between Paws and Claws founders Heather Twisdale and Anita Shea, the TCAS staff, and the many rescues now involved seems to be making the impossible, possible… In 2013, we believe the sky in the limit. Please “like” the PAWS and Claws Facebook page and witness this remarkable achievement.
Wishing you and your loved ones the best for 2013,
The Pups and Volunteers at PAWS New England
