Centre County PAWS: Bar Dog Operation Grant Report

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

We used the funds received from this grant to purchase microchips for our shelter dogs.

PAWS spends approximately $8,000 annually on microchips for the animals in our care. Your grant of $750 allowed us to offset our annual expenditure by this amount.

How many pets did this grant help?

68 dogs

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

We had two dogs surrendered to us a few months ago from a humane case – Francine (first photo) and Beans (second photo). Francine was emaciated but was gaining weight and we quickly found out she was pregnant. She gave birth to five beautiful puppies shortly after arriving at PAWS (third photo). Francine, Beans, and all of the “Beanie babies,” as we called the puppies, were micrcochipped thanks to your generosity.
