We finally got the results tabulated for our 2017 Have a Heart for Paws campaign with a total of $945.90 raised to help support the dogs and cats at Helping Paws. During the month of February, some of our favorite local businesses took donations for Helping Paws where donors wrote their name(s) on a paw print which was then displayed at the local business. We also tried out a virtual (online) site this year to get donations through GivingGrid which took in $210 of the total raised.

This year, eight local businesses showed their support, including: Bentley’s Petstuff, Charlie’s Doghouse, Julie Ann’s Frozen Custard, Kiera’s Confections, Nature’s Balance Acupuncture, Nature’s Feed, Thomas’ Tails, and Uptown Salon. A heartfelt THANK YOU for the continued support from our community and know that we appreciate all the people who donated something during the month of February! 100% of the donations go towards the feeding and care of the homeless animals at Helping Paws Animal Shelter.
