PAWS NY’S SPRING 2020 BENEFIT IS MOVING ONLINE

We’re taking the party ONLINE! In order to prioritize the health of our supporters, the PAWS NY Spring Benefit scheduled for May 5 has been cancelled.

In lieu of our in-person fundraising event, we are collecting donations to help support PAWS NY and our work to help vulnerable New Yorkers and their pets during this unprecedented time and beyond.

We are also still hosting our online silent auction, which is now OPEN FOR BIDDING! Visit the auction website to see all 30+ items and to make your bid.

PAWS NY Benefit Goes Digital

Plus, a special thanks to our Cool Cat Sponsor

DONATE TO PAWS ONLINE
HOW WILL YOUR ONLINE DONATION HELP?

Please make a donation and help us raise the money we need to support our clients during this crisis and prepare for what’s next! As a consequence of the cancelled event, our revenue will be down, and now more than ever, we are relying on YOU, our community, to pitch in with donations. Every dollar will go directly toward helping our clients and their pets get through this difficult time by enabling us to provide pet food, foster care, and critical veterinary care that they would otherwise go without.

Donate to PAWS and support our online Spring Benefit.

Another great way to help is to spread the word! Please share on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram, and with your friends and family to help us reach our goal so we can continue to support our clients and their pets today and in the future.
