If you haven't checked the Message Board lately, PAWS of Austin could use our help in two ways - voting to help them win grant money and fostering new danes they are getting in.
Paws is participating in the Animal Rescue Site $300,000.00 Challenge 2012. Go to http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com and vote daily for PAWS of Austin. Just enter their name and Texas. Voting ends September 16th, so vote daily and tell your friends to vote for PAWS of Austin. It will also ask you to confirm your vote. Here's info from the site:
With your help to vote and spread the word, your favorite eligible Petfinder.com rescue could win one of 69 grant prizes in our third voting round! The grand prize is a $5,000 grant. There is a $3,000 grant for the top Project for Paws proposal, and four $1,000 grants for runners up. And 53 regional (State, Canadian, or International) grant prizes of $1,000 are up for grabs - no organization can win two in a row this year.
Vote daily, & tell your friends - 69 prizes!
· Select your Country and (if U.S. or Canada) State/Province.
· Optional fields accept partial (but not misspelled/inaccurate) information.
· You can cast one vote every day for your favorite rescue organization.
Also on the Message Board, PAWS got calls to rescue four more danes on the 15th and needs fosters. If you can help out with fostering, or are interested in adopting, please go to their website at www.pawsofaustin.org and under"How to Help", fill out the foster application, or if interested in adopting, fill out the adoption application. PAWS can always use help with fostering the danes they get in, so please contact them directly if you can help. Prima never knows when she will get calls to rescue danes, and if she has your information on file for fostering, she can contact you.
September meetups and events will be posted soon, including information on Puppy Mill Awareness Day.
