Recent changes in the RABIES LAW that could mean the difference between life and death for your dog.

TOBY in Omaha relaxing after a long tough day of visiting his friends. It's exhausting being petted and hugged all morning! A nap seems like the right thing. Til later......

OTIS from Riverview, FL got a letter from a little 2nd grader today! 

Each day in the U.S. millions of pounds of adulterated pet foods are sold to unknowing consumers; an estimated $19 Million dollars worth every single day. Laws that govern pet food/animal feed have been ignored for so long, it’s so bad – so big – it is probably too late for anything other than a warning.

The GiveDayTampaBayevent has come and gone. A BIGTHANK YOU to all that contributed to this event. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. 

It’s So Bad, All We Can do Now is Warn

Video of PAWS members at the WEDU studio chatting about the organization during the fundraising event.

GIZMO in the Nations Capital..

We are so humbled to have had this amazing day at the US Congress. Gizmo and Miss Greenwich 2016 - Pippa Leigh were welcomed by the offices of Representative Joe Courtney, Senator Richard Blumenthal, Senator Chris Murphy and more. We had many conversations about therapy dogs and the important difference they make for all ages. We look forward to continuing our work with Congress!

Learn With Jenza Dog Training

Jan here - many times during the course of a conversation the question about 'training' arises. While PAWS cannot recommend anyone, I have personally used Lisa's services and can without any reservation recommend her. IF you have training questions or concerns please give her a call. She and her husband Dave will help you understand how important training is. They teach obedience beginner classes up to Advanced Agility classes and everything in between! A link to her website has been provided.
