Patuxent Animal Welfare Society Inc. (PAWS): Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Our invoice for Oct. 1, 2019, through Jan. 15, 2020, from the Calvert Well Pet Clinic outlined the cats that were rescued, treated and placed up for adoption in our three locations of Petco. The grant of $1,000 was a major contribution to our overall cost of services of $7,856.11 for 125 rescued cats. A copy is available upon request.

PAWS was able to expand the outreach of its operation and take in more rescues. Not only were we able to handle the cats brought directly to us, we were able to help our local shelters by taking additional cats from them for adoption. The grant covered the cost of medical care, food, and foster supplies.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Bowtie (first photo) was a very shy boy and needed a patient family. His new mom was ready for the loving.

Tasha (second photo), a beautiful, sweet, cuddly Russian blue, went with her new mom, who had no other pets.

Billy Ray (third photo) was a crazy happy kitten who couldn’t stop playing. The new parents were ecstatic to take him home.

Reese’s (fourth photo) new owner, Reese, fell in love with him. With them having the same name, it was meant to be.

Mouse (fifth photo) was just a lovable hunk of cat. He was no Mouse, for sure. His new parents loved that he was an armful.

Patches (sixth photo) was with us way too long. She was passed over for the more cuddly cats. But then her mom walked in and Patches just knew this was the person. It was such a great match.

Spice (seventh photo) was ready to head off with her new mom. Her eyes just said, “What are you waiting for? Let’s get outta here!”

JW (eighth photo) was just frozen in the corner until his angel appeared. He’s off to a quiet home with his mom, who has the patience of a saint and lots of love to give.
