No-Kill Sanctuary Update

 

 

PawsRendering-Large

We are proud to announce that we are ready to break ground on this much needed animal sanctuary.  Now we ask for your help in a way never asked for before.  We need each of you to help spread the word, donate to the building fund and get involved to make this happen as soon as possible.  Over 4 million animals a year meet their untimely deaths in shelters across our great country.  Even though we cannot save them all, we will strive to save as many lives as possible. With this Sanctuary we will have the proper means to provide better care, housing and training for our animals while they wait on their “forever” homes.  All donations are tax deductible and very much appreciated.

Paraphrased form Carolina Gateway article, Wednesday, March 11, 2015:

Paws in the Panhandle Rescue and Adoption recently closed on 12 acres of land to build an animal sanctuary near Indian Land in York County.  The sanctuary location gives Paws a no-kill temporary home for animals rescued from local shelters while they wait for their “forever home.”

Per Gloria Davey, Paws founder and Executive Director:  “We could not be more excited and thrilled as we embark on our next level to saving lives in a major way.”

Every day, more than 9,000 healthy, treatable, adoptable cats and dogs are killed in animal “shelters.”  Since its inception in 2010, more than 160 animals have been saved by  from these facilities by Paws in the Panhandle through the generosity of foster homes.  Paws goal is to see this area of the country become a no-kill area.

Paws in the Panhandle is in the process of seeking help to get the sanctuary built.  Needed are engineers, architects, builders, and fundraisers.  Monetary and corporate donations are also needed to the get the sanctuary up and running.

Donations can be mailed to:  Paws in the Panhandle, PO Box 1802, Fort Mill, SC 29716 or dropped off at PAWSitively Thrifty (Building 7, warehouse 737), 429 Marvin Road, Indian Land.

If you are interested in helping or donating, please call Gloria Davey at 803-371-0807.
