JoEllen Jacobs, spoke with us about Partners for Paws – a non-profit, ALL volunteer organization.
“Paws Mission is to raise funds with the purpose of keeping our shelter dogs healthy and safe. Paws has been instrumental in assisting Chief Dog Warden, Marc Rogols, in keeping the shelter’s euthanasia rate extremely low. The shelter staff is the best, however, the shelter does not receive any of your tax dollars, so Paws steps in with financial assistance where needed.” JoEllen responds.
Paws is active in the community, hosting events with a small group of dedicated volunteers, giving them the benefit of helping homeless dogs at the Wright-Poling Pickaway County Dog Shelter. There are a variety of ways you can be involved including becoming a member.
“Paws funding comes from fund raising events and donations from individuals and businesses in our community.” Paws hosts numerous fundraisers and activities throughout the year.
To get involved visit their Facebook page or attend a monthly meeting, held 7pm the 3rd Monday of each month at the Circleville Fire House. Use the south door to access the meeting room.
On May 12th , during the Motorcycle Show stop by the tent at Keystone Books & Gifts to meet some volunteers. Paws volunteers are always happy to tell you about our activities and events.
