Doris Day Animal Foundation Grant
In an effort to boost senior cat adoptions and thanks to the “Doris Day Senior Cat Care Credit”, AWS is able to give a $100 credit to each adopter of an older cat to be used for the cat’s ongoing, post-adoptive care. The funds can be used for such items as food supplements, diagnostic work, and prescriptions. The purpose of the program is to help set adopters’ minds at ease and therefore reduces the amount of time senior cats spend in the shelter.Read More
Wanted – Peanut Butter
At the Animal Welfare Society, we provide daily enrichment to the animals we care for. For bunnies, it can be treats mingled with hay in a paper towel roll; for cats, it might mean catnip sprinkled on their bed and for dogs it could be a Kong, a hard rubber toy, stuffed with treats and peanut butter. Keeping them busy is all part of keeping them happy during their time with us. Please see our wish list for more ideas of how you can help us care for the many animals who depend on us year-round.Read More
