Pooch N Paws is committed to supporting the Pet Rescue Community….our new “Love a Rescue” Red Balloon Dog Mascot “Lucy” is named after our own rescue that has touched our lives. We rescued Lucy from the Yorkie Rescue Group. She was found dumped in a forest in Ocala Florida and when I read her story I knew she was going to be a perfect companion for our original yorkie Mandy.
Everyone who has adopted a rescue has a similar love story. We believe everyone deserves to be touched by this special kind of love.
- We have partnered with 3 local organizations making a difference with pet rescue… ( Angels Among Us, Country Livin Rescue, and Planned Pethood) providing a formal program of special discounts and a welcome home gift for new rescue adoptions and their families through these organizations.
- Any item purchased from the rescue table at the front of our store, 100% of the profits will be donated to one of our rescue partners.
- Many silent auction gift basket donations and profits from small in house charity events as well as periodic dog food donations will also be donated in Lucy’s name throughout the year to various rescue organizations.
In 2014, Pooch N Paws donated in excess of $15,000 in cash sponsorships, silent auction baskets/items and dog/cat food to various charitable organizations including local pet rescues, schools, churches and a variety of other community causes. With your help, we hope to exceed this amount in 2015!!
