NATURAL PAWS ANNOUNCES FUNDRAISER TO AID PET VICTIMS IN NEED
Houston’s hometown family-owned pet supply store Natural Pawz, launched their 4th annual “Pawz for a Cauze” fundraiser on June 1, 2014. The program hopes to raise at least $7,500 to purchase 100 pet oxygen masks. The masks will be distributed to various fire stations and emergency First Responders throughout Houston. Pet oxygen masks can be used on pets that have suffered from smoke inhalation during a house fire, or losing consciousness after exposure to toxic fumes.
Donations for the fundraiser can be made at any Natural Pawz store location, or online at https://fundly.com/emergency-pet-oxygen-masks .
The idea for this year’s fundraiser has sprung from the various Pawz Hero Awards given out by Natural Pawz, to Houston’s First Responders and their heroic actions in saving pets from fires. After discovering that very few fire stations were equipped with pet oxygen masks, Natural Pawz made in their mission to equip as many stations as possible with them. “We would love for every single Houston fire department to have these masks, and will do what we can to achieve that,” said Biff Picone, co-owner of Natural Pawz.
Each year, Natural Pawz promotes their annual “Pawz for a Cauze” fundraiser to help raise much-needed funds for non-profit organizations. In the past 4 years, Natural Pawz has raised funds and donated pet supplies to Paws Houston, Houston Humane Society, BARC Animal Shelter, and aniMeals on Wheels. “Pawz for a Cauze is something we really take to heart, and will continue to do year after year,” said Biff Picone, co-owner of Natural Pawz.
