PAWS Paws Animal Welfare Society, Inc. is very pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded a grant of $35,000 by the Elmina B. Sewall Foundation in support of our Valley Cat Haven expansion. We have been planning our expansion for the past year and began construction in August, 2017. The work will be ongoing through the Spring of 2018. We are very grateful for the Foundation’s support of our efforts to improve the quality of our cat rescue operation.
The Elmina B. Sewall Foundation is located in Freeport, Maine. Mrs. Sewall worked to improve the well-being of people, animals and the environment. The Elmina B. Sewall Foundation was established to continue her work.
Another Huge Successful Spay/Neuter Clinic
PAWS sponsored a Spay/Neuter Clinic on October 10, 2017 which was held at Fort Kent Animal Hospital. This was the third clinic this year and all of them were highly successful. Our most recent clinic helped 13 pet owners who needed financial assistance to get their cats altered for a total of 22 cats, 9 females and 13 males. This brings the total of cats spayed or neutered this year at our clinics to 86, 42 females and 44 males. These clinics are a valuable community service; 86 cats in the area will no longer be adding to the overpopulation of cats and these cats will now be healthier and their owners will have better pets. We want to thank Dr. Yule and her staff for making this possible and for sponsoring the clinic in February and we want to thank Susan Hall and Sandi Coburn for sponsoring the clinic in May.
